Key Points

  • The Tigers announced a pair of roster moves on Friday
  • Solak has been claimed off waivers
  • Turnbull has been transferred to the 60-day IL

Who Is Nick Solak?

Solak, who is 28, was originally selected by the New York Yankees in the 2nd Round of the 2016 MLB Draft. From 2019-2023, Solak has played in 254 Major League Baseball Games (253 with the Texas Rangers and 1 with the Braves). In those games, he batted .252 with 21 home runs and 93 RBIs.

Turnbull transferred to the 60-day IL

This is obviously a bummer for Turnbull and the Tigers as he was expected to be a big piece of their rotation in 2023. Before getting injured, he went 1-4 with a 7.26 ERA in seven starts. We certainly wish him the best of luck as he continues to rebab.
