Soler was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right oblique Friday. The injury will bring a premature end to Soler's campaign.

Soler isn't starting Thursday against the Tigers. Soler went 1-for-11 with one RBI and four strikeouts in three games since returning from an oblique injury, and he'll get a breather Thursday. Ryan O'Hearn will serve as the designated hitter.
Soler (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday. Soler will wind up missing around two weeks with a strained right oblique. He was hitting a respectable .235/.331/.456 prior to the injury, though that's not in the same ballpark as the .265/.354/.569 line he managed in his breakout 2019 campaign. Kelvin Gutierrez was optioned in a corresponding move.
