WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Shortly before the 2010 season, the Pirates signed Solano at an unusually advanced age (he turned 23 during the season) and assigned him directly to the GCL. I have to think they wanted him as an organizational utility player. 

2010: Played second almost exclusively, showing less range than Jorge Bishop or Kevin Mort, and didn’t hit much despite the younger competition.

Solano will probably fill in somewhere at the lower levels in 2011.
