Top Donovan Solano News

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Activated Friday

    Solano (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

    Solano went 2-for-9 with an RBI during three games on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento, and he's now set to rejoin the big club ahead of the series opener against Atlanta. While Solano won't have an everyday role going forward, he should see time across the infield during the season's final weeks.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Clutch homer in return

    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.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Could return Friday

    Solano (illness) could rejoin the Giants as early as Friday against Atlanta, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Solano recently began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sacramento and went 2-for-9 with a run and an RBI across three appearances. Manager Gabe Kapler said that the 33-year-old could remain in Sacramento on Thursday to get some additional at-bats, but he appears to be on track to return from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Nearing rehab assignment

    Solano (illness) is expected to begin a rehab assignment over the weekend, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Solano has been out since testing positive for COVID-19 in late August. Previous reports indicated he could return to the active roster by the end of the weekend, but it looks as though the Giants would rather see him get into a few minor-league games first. Given that he's only been out for just over two weeks, he shouldn't need a lengthy rehab assignment, meaning he should be back on the active roster sometime early next week.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Could return for weekend series

    Solano (Illness) could be activated from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of the Giants' three-game road series versus the Cubs that begins Friday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Solano wasn't able to join the Giants in Colorado for their three-game series in Colorado that began Monday, but he was cleared to return to the team facility in San Francisco after completing a quarantine period. Assuming he fares well during his workouts the next few days, Solano could rejoin the Giants this weekend. Solano will likely serve as a short-side platoon mate at second base for Tommy La Stella once he's reinstated.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Solano tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Solano was dealing with cold symptoms, which was the original reason he was placed on the injured list. Now with a confirmed positive test, Solano is in line for 7-to-10 day absence. The team has tremendous depth in the middle infield, with Tommy La Stella's playing time likely to be more secure in Solano's absence.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Lands on injured list

    Solano was placed on the injured list for an undisclosed reason Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Since the Giants didn't provide an injury designation for Solano, he's likely on the COVID-19 injured list. If that's the case, he'll be eligible to rejoin the team as soon as he clears the league's health and safety protocols.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Blasts game-winning home run

    Solano went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Padres.

    Solano entered in the eighth inning to pinch hit for Lamonte Wade. He hit the game-winning two-run homer off A.J. Puk to put the Giants ahead. Solano has recently been limited to starting against southpaws. As a result, he has totaled just four hits since Aug. 5. The 33-year-old is slashing .277/.335/.396 with six long balls, 30 RBI, 31 runs and a pair of steals in 317 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: May be in short side of platoon

    Solano will start at second base and bat sixth Sunday against the Brewers.

    Solano hadn't started either of the Giants' past two games, both of which came against right-handed pitching. He'll draw back into the lineup Sunday with southpaw Brett Anderson on the mound for Milwaukee, but the righty-hitting Solano looks like he'll be used as a short-side platoon player at the keystone moving forward following the lefty-hitting Tommy La Stella's recent return from the injured list.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Clubs fifth homer

    Solano went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a two-RBI single in Thursday's 7-1 win over Arizona.

    The 33-year-old started the scoring in the fourth inning with his second homer in the last five games. He knocked in another pair of runs with his sixth-inning single. Solano's playing time could be in decline soon, but he's doing everything possible to make that a tough decision for manager Gabe Kapler. In his last seven games, Solano is 12-for-28 (.429) with two homers, three doubles, six RBI and four runs scored. Tommy La Stella, who returned from the injured list Wednesday, will likely compete with Solano for playing time at second base going forward, which could see the latter drop into a short-side platoon role.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Goes deep Saturday

    Solano went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 8-6 win over Houston.

    The infielder hit his first homer since June 26. Solano is rarely a threat as a power hitter, as his long ball Saturday allowed him to match his career high of four in a season. He's added 23 RBI, 27 runs scored, a pair of stolen bases and a .271/.327/.371 slash line through 278 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Out of Wednesday's lineup

    Solano is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Solano is 3-for-20 with seven strikeouts over his past six games and will take a seat Wednesday. Wilmer Flores will cover the keystone while Jason Vosler starts at third base.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Day off Saturday

    Solano will sit Saturday against the Pirates, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Solano sits after starting 11 straight games at second base, a stretch in which he hit .279/.340/.302. Wilmer Flores slides to his usual spot Saturday, with Jason Vosler starting at third base.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Notches steal in win

    Solano went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Monday's 7-2 win over the Dodgers.

    Solano was hit by a pitch in the fifth and then swiped second base -- just his second steal of the year. He later singled and scored during a four-run seventh inning for the Giants. The 33-year-old has been brilliant at the plate recently, tallying seven hits in 17 at-bats over four games since returning from the All-Star break. For the year, he's slashing .274/.326/.365 with three homers, 21 RBI, 25 runs scored and a 16:42 BB:K over 242 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Third straight two-hit game

    Solano went 2-for-5 in Sunday's 2-1 loss to St. Louis.

    The 33-year-old has started the second half on a high note with three straight two-hit performances. The downside to Solano's recent work is that all six of those hits were singles. The contact-hitting infielder is slashing .274/.325/.367 with three home runs, 21 RBI, 24 runs scored and a stolen base in 237 plate appearances. He shouldn't be expected to hit for much power nor provide much speed on the basepaths, but he's started six of the Giants' last seven games at second base.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Out of Wednesday's lineup

    Solano is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Solano will receive the day off after going 1-for-12 with an RBI and a walk over the past three games. Wilmer Flores will shift to the keystone while Jason Vosler starts at third base.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Tallies three hits

    Solano went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a hit-by-pitch in Saturday's 6-5 win over Arizona.

    Solano knocked in Brandon Crawford to cap a four-run rally in the third inning. All three of Solano's hits Saturday were singles. He's hit safely in nine of his last 11 games, going 14-for-42 (.333) with a home run, two RBI and four runs scored in that span. The infielder has a .278/.332/.386 slash line through 196 plate appearances, but he lacks much in the way of counting stats with three homers, 18 RBI, 21 runs scored and a stolen base.

  • Giants' Donovan Solano: Takes seat Friday

    Solano isn't starting Friday's game against the Diamondbacks, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Solano had recorded hits in four of his last five appearances and went 5-for-18 with a home run, a double, two runs, an RBI and two walks. He'll get a breather while Thairo Estrada starts at second base and bats eighth.
