Quick hit: Solarte to AAA

Yangervis Solarte has confirmed to ESPN Deportes that he has been sent down to Triple A Scranton.

Solarte started the year off on fire, even leading the league in batting in April but has since seen his performance slip. He is currently batting .260/.343/.393/.736 and he has been mired in a prolonged slump for close to a month now.

As Brad wrote eariler this morning, Zelous Wheeler was the one who was called up to replace Solarte.
