2013 After seven-plus seasons in the minors, Solano—who signed as a minor-league free agent last offseason—earned a ticket to the bigs in mid-May and held his own when pressed into regular duty by the Infante trade. The diminutive Colombian is a contact hitter with a reliable glove. While he’ll never post sexy counting stats, he can be a second-division starter or a quality reserve infielder. Just ask Braves righty Kris Medlen, who allowed only six homers in 138 innings but served up both of Solano’s 2012 shots in a single outing on September 25, producing one of the best @cantpredictball nuggets of the season.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, R.J. Please rank the following infielders by 2013 fantasy upside: Josh Rutledge, Logan Forsythe, Jed Lowrie, Everth Cabrera, Chris Nelson, Adeiny Hechavarria, and Donovan Solano.
(Todd from Oakland)
Hey Todd,

I'm not too good at fantasy (as Marc Normandin can attest) but I'd rank 'em something like:

Lowrie - Hurt often but probably the best hitter of the bunch
Cabrera - Should swipe a ton of bags and he has the positional advantage over Forsythe
Rutledge - Not as good as last year but he can hit and that park will help
Forsythe - Park hurts
Nelson - Park should help
Solano - I think I undersold him last year, but I don't know that I can put him higher
Hechavarria - Not sold that he's a fantasy contributor (R.J. Anderson)
