"It's like Spring Education, not to rush him and get him within the games, but try and get him game-ready," Baker stated. "And hopefully [there] are going to be no setbacks; this may be like his Spring Instruction."
Baker applied Solis as the initially left-handed reliever out with the bullpen to open the season, and his absence has forced the manager to adjust his strategy for a bullpen that holds the highest ERA inside the Majors.

Sammy was massive in our equation."

"We were monitoring him from day a single," Baker mentioned. "We hope it does not come back. Is there a possibility with his history? Yes. We'll do what ever we can to ensure Sammy is right here in the end, which can be most significant."
Baker stated right-hander Joe Blanton is throwing once again just after he was placed around the 10-day DL on May well 17 for suitable shoulder inflammation. Baker stated Blanton could be offered late within Wilmer Difo Jersey the Nationals' road trip next week.
Blanton held ERAs of two.84 and two.48 the previous two seasons, but it is ballooned to 9.49 in 14 appearances this year. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound reliever has allowed six dwelling runs soon after providing up seven all of final season.
"We're going to take our time and make certain he's appropriate, too," Baker said. "It just depends how he looks to [pitching coach] Mike [Maddux], how he feels to himself and how he responds to remedy."
The Nationals moved their game Thursday against the Mariners from four:05 p.m. to 12:05 p.m. ET due to the forecast of inclement climate.
