As a second baseman with a plus hit tool, Solak should offer a relatively high floor. He made a significant jump from short-season ball in 2016 to High-A last season and was still one of the Florida State League's best hitters. Solak ranked third in batting average (.301), second in OBP (.397) and third in SLG (.460), which oversells his power potential. He was so much better equipped than the typical pitcher at High-A, that he was able to play over his head. Double-A pitchers were much more willing to challenge him, and his walk rate dipped from 13.1 percent to 7.6 percent. His ISO also dropped from .159 to a more representative .143. There are plenty of teams that could use a second baseman who hits .285 or .290 with 15 home runs, a handful of steals and a solid OBP, but that probably won't be enough for him to crack the Yankees' lineup anytime soon. A trade would be welcomed, but for now he will continue to challenge for batting titles in the upper levels of the minors.
LEAGUE: AA    BATS: R    Throws: R    HT: 5'10"    WT: 180 lbs.    DOB: 1/11/1995    Drafted: 2nd Rd in 2016

  2. Nick Solak 2017 Preseason Outlook
    A polished college bat out of Louisville, the 21-year-old Solak did plenty of damage for Staten Island in the short-season New York-Penn League during his brief time in the minors following the draft. The second baseman hit .321 with a .412 on-base percentage. Solak tallied almost as many walks (30) as strikeouts (39). He also swiped eight bases in 64 games. Solak does not project to hit for much power, possessing more of a line drive stroke. Solak also may end up playing center field, though no determination has been made on where he will ultimately end up on the diamond. A second-round selection in last year's draft, the Yankees will likely be bullish with Solak, as he should begin the season at Low-A with a chance to advance rapidly should he get off to a hot start.
