A 21st round pick of the Padres out of high school, Solomon's freshman season ended early with a shoulder injury. He then split time between the bullpen and rotation as a sophomore. After dominating the Cape Cod League (0.54 ERA) in a similar role, he was expected to be Notre Dame's ace. Instead, Solomon was quickly moved back into the bullpen after just four starts after he struggled to command his stuff in early outings. His 91-94 mph fastball as a starter will touch 95-96 out of the bullpen and he's mixed in a slider and a curveball. The curve is a potential above-average pitch, but he throws his fringy slider more because he can throw it for strikes. His fringy changeup disappeared when he moved to the pen. Solomon has yet to fill out his 6-foot-4 frame. The team that takes Solomon will probably try to develop him as a starter.
