The Washington Nationals announced the signing of LHP Sammy Solis, their second round pick, out of the University of San Diego.

The deal was for a reported $1 million.

Solis, 6'5", was taken 51st overall in the draft. He suffered a herniated disc in his back which limited him in 2009, but recovered to put together an impressive 2010 campaign. He went 9-2 with a 3.42 ERA in 15 games/14 starts and was named as an All-West Cast Conference player. 

One scouting report says Solis has three solid pitches, and while he has a limited ceiling, he shouldn't take too long to get to the big leauges.

The Nationals have now signed 23 of their top 26 selections in the 2010 Amateur Draft.
