Shoulder fatigue. Not expected to be a problem. Just a little rest.

Just needs to stay healthy. Should be fighting for the 5th spot next year with Jordan and Karns and Detweiler(if we decide to get another 4th starter in FA or by trade)

The growth of guys like Ray, Purke and Solis are interesting on two fronts.  One, if they start to put it all together, they can be used as trade pieces.  Two, they could be part of or replace a part of the rotation.  Detwiler has been hurt, but he also has some trade value.  If he can be had for a starting pitcher or an upgrade anywhere on the field, than he can be dealt if one of these guys are big league ready.

Edit - Trade speculation moved to buyers thread

Solis a potential bullpen lefty in 2014

Quote
Promoting their top starting pitching prospects as relievers, to both improve their bullpen and provide them a first taste of the majors, would be a new plan for the Nationals. The Cardinals have used that model to perfection in recent seasons, using Joe Kelly, Carlos Martinez, Trevor Rosenthal and even Michael Wacha in relief roles. It seems Rosenthal will remain their closer, but the others either have or will become starters.

If the Nationals follow the Cardinals’ paradigm, it could mean Solis joining the majors in midseason as a lefty capable of bridging the starter to the back of the bullpen. Solis, the Nationals’ No. 6 overall prospect according to Baseball America, is currently ripping through the Arizona Fall League. The Nationals still view Solis as a starter long-term, but a trip to the majors as a reliever could hasten his development while giving the Nationals another strong relief option.

This is exactly what should happen, even if he starts as a low-leverage LHRP. But we have (a) a surplus of current starters, (b) an absence of LHRP, and (c) no obligation to let everybody be a starter just because that's what they dream about at night. Start behaving a winning franchise, which includes letting talented players contribute to the team's success however they can, even if MORE talented players are filling their ideal roles. Plus, moving into relief will likely lead to an uptick in stuff, and Solis sitting 94-97 instead of 91-95 could be a monster help.

Bullpen - Craig Stammen (R), Tanner Roark (R), Boone Logan (L), Sammy Solis (L), Christian Garcia (R), Tyler Clippard (R), Rafael Soriano (R).

Roark, Solis and Garcia are all in competition with Krol, Cedeno and Erik Davis for those three spots.  Storen, in this situation, gets traded.

i'd like Roark in the rotation and I doubt Garcia will be counted on.  I'm hoping Krol, Solis, and O'Flaherty are our lefties next year.

break him in for a year in the pen to get him experience.  Can't be the worst thing in the world.

We're not that desperate for pen help. Let him develop his secondary pitches in the minors.

Solis has never pitched more than 96 innings in a season. College or pro. If we view him as a stater, you have to let him pitch.

No problem limiting his innings to 120 as a starter then promoting him to relieve, but he's still got work in the minors to do as a starter.

On THIS club? When is he a starter on THIS club? We're going to do what...hold him on the 40-man roster for three years in AAA just to keep him a starter?

We have Gio, Jordan and Stephen, obviously, for the next 2 years. We have Detwiler and Taylor Jordan for at least two years. We have Giolito, Karns and Cole who are likely tracked ahead of Solis in the long-term plans.

Sorry, he's just not a starter for this team, or at least not someone who gets in the mix before 2016 or by accident/injury.

Bring him up, let him throw a couple innings at a time in low leverage situations, let him handle some long man duties. Next year if there's a better plan then send him to AAA to get stretched out again.

If Rizzo thinks he can contribute in the pen, bring him up. I'm not interested in protecting the long-term interests of a 4th/5th starter type who's like 7th down the list of guys to fill that role on this team.

Of course, this is the difference between us and the Cardinals. The Cardinals have no problem putting Trevor Rosenthal, Seth Maness and Kevin Siegrist in as relievers if it helps the club....and it DOES help the club. Those guys gave them like 150 innings of low 2 era pitching this year...and they were ALL as good or significantly better prospects than Solis.

Let's stop being wusses and act like a winning ball club.

Eh, Solis still needs to develop. He's 25 and going to Double A. Even if he's a releiver, he isn't ready. Unless he's strictly a lefty specialist.

Rizzo mentions Solis along with Det, Karns, Jordan and Roark as competitors for the 5th slot and necessary depth.

Might be worthh it as a relief pitcher for a season. Then he could start. I'd rather see Solis than Mattheus.

Solis isn't on any minor league rosters.   No word what the injury/situation is.
