- Donovan Solano Demoted
The Marlins make a tough call by optioning Donovan Solano to AAA New Orleans. Donnie Murphy will stay in the Majors.
Solano was hitting .410 with three doubles and a triple in 39 at bats this spring.
The reason why they demote Solano is because that Murphy has big league experience and Solano doesn’t, it’s as simple as that.
