Nationals transferred LHP Sammy Solis from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Sammy Solis underwent an MRI on his ailing left elbow.

Solis tried playing catch a few days ago but said he had tingling in his fingers. It's obviously not a good sign, but more will be known after the exam results are in. Solis is a key part of the Nats bullpen, so losing him for a significant period of time would be a blow.
