Costa Rica’s Bryan Solano Signs with MLB’s Houston Astros

Major League Baseball (MLB) club the Houston Astros has scooped up right-handed Costa Rican pitching prospect Bryan Solano.

The 19-year-old Limón native signed a contract with team becoming the first Costa Rican to sign with a MLB club in the last eight years.


“We had him go into the bullpen and he seemed like an intriguing prospect to us,” said agent Álvaro Montalván. “He’s a fast-armed prospect that relies on two types of pitches: a slider and a fastball. He came to us with velocity problems, reaching 87 mph when he should have been reaching a minimum of 90 mph. After some training throughout this time we’ve been able to get him throwing up to 92 mph.”
