Solis first injured his quadriceps running late in spring training. Then, he suffered a groin strain that the team’s medical staff originally thought might have been a hernia.
“It turned out it was not a hernia, so everything is fine,” Solis said.
If the 6-foot-5, 230-lb., University of San Diego product makes it through Monday’s start unscathed and healthy, Solis would be activated from the disabled list. He is likely to be assigned to Single-A Potomac as early as next week.
Solis is scheduled to go five innings against the Detroit Tigers’ extended spring training squad on Monday.
After the second-round selection signed last season, Solis made two appearances with the low Single-A Hagerstown Suns, pitching four innings, allowing no runs on just two hits with three strikeouts and no walks.
