Peter Joseph Solomon, an American professional baseball pitcher for the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball, was born on August 16, 1996. He was a member of the University of Notre Dame baseball team.
The Houston Astros selected Solomon in the fourth round of the 2017 MLB draft and signed him. In 2017, he played in one game with the Gulf Coast League Astros.

He made his MLB debut the next day, pitching a scoreless inning of relief against the Seattle Mariners. Solomon picked up his first win on September 19, 2021, after working four innings in relief against the Arizona Diamondbacks, a game in which the Astros won 7-6.
