Sammy Solis (elbow) began a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday.
He let up one run—it came on a solo blast by Pawtucket outfielder Rusney Castillo—and one walk in his lone inning of work. The left-hander induced three groundouts while throwing 10 of his 16 pitches for strikes. Solis has been sidelined with elbow inflammation for the past two months, but should be back in the Nats' bullpen before long. Jun 15 - 7:03 PM
