Solano went 1-for-1 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 6-5 extra-innings win over Atlanta.

The 33-year-old missed about three weeks due to COVID-19, but he was able to make a near-instant impact in his return to the big-league roster. Solano's pinch-hit, ninth-inning solo shot forced extra innings, where San Francisco ultimately won on a sacrifice fly by ace starter Kevin Gausman. Through 321 plate appearances, Solano has seven home runs, 31 RBI, 32 runs scored, a pair of stolen bases and a .278/.338/.406 slash line. He's expected to see a short-side platoon role with Tommy La Stella at second base going forward, although Solano could also fill in at shortstop or third base.
