2B Nick Solak has found his swing timing just in time for the Texas Rangers regular season!
It was never a question of whether Nick Solak would begin the season at second base for the Texas Rangers, but rather would he finally tap into the plus hit tool that made him a coveted trade target back in 2019?
Based on the way the 26-year-old has been swinging the lumber recently, we’d say so.
Solak hit an opposite field grand slam in the Rangers’ Tuesday night victory over the SF Giants and followed that up with another home run in Wednesday’s win over the Diamondbacks.
Prior to this mini power outburst, Solak had looked lethargic with the bat in spring. It look as though the issue was about swing timing, and the new results are paying dividends.
Overall, Solak’s roster spot was never in question, but in a season that will likely be make-or-break for the 26-year-old at second base, his newfound hot-hitting will only bolster his case to stick around.
