Giants' Donovan Solano: Collects four hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, two RBI and two runs overall in Wednesday's 11-8 win over the Rockies.

Solano entered Wednesday having not recorded multiple extra-base hits in a game this season, but he delivered three to help power the Giants' offense in Colorado. The 31-year-old has a .417/.436/.722 slash line with five doubles and two home runs through 11 games in July.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Drives in two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI in Sunday's 8-3 win over Milwaukee.

It was just the second multi-RBI game of 2019 for the veteran infielder. Solano is still struggling to get every-day playing time, but he owns a respectable .307/.337/.398 slash line in 95 plate appearances.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Starts versus righty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano started at short and batted eighth Wednesday, going 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in a 7-5 win over the Padres.

Solano had started the previous four contests due to a slew of southpaws taking the bump against the Giants, but Wednesday's start was a bit surprising considering it came against a righty. The veteran utility infielder has performed adequately when called upon (.308/.337/.397 over 83 plate appearances) and starting shortstop Brandon Crawford has been disappointing at best, but a complete changing of the guard seems unlikely. Manager Bruce Bochy has proven in the past that he rewards players who homer with a start the following day -- Solano homered on Tuesday -- so this may simply be a result of his unorthodox system. The Giants are facing three righties in their upcoming series against the Cardinals, so it will be telling whether this is a depth chart shift or just a blip on the radar.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Pops first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano went 3-for-6 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 10-4 win over the Padres.

The veteran utility infielder received the start at shortstop and acted as the Giants' leadoff man, a role he's been filling lately when the team opposes left-handed pitching. He kicked the game off with his first home run of the season as the Giants throttled San Diego for the second straight night. Solano's slashing a surprising .311/.342/.392 through 28 games since joining the Giants, but his .355 BABIP suggests a cool-down could happen at any time.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Singles twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run Tuesday in the Giants' 4-2 win over the Rockies.

Solano drew a second consecutive start in the middle infield, spelling a slumping Joe Panik at the keystone. Though he was able to extend his hitting streak to five games, Solano's dearth of power and speed, poor team context and lack of steady at-bats are all reasons that make it difficult to get excited about him for fantasy purposes. With Panik and everyday shortstop Brandon Crawford both in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale, Solano will resume his usual bench role.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Collects two hits in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano started at second base and went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Solano has started two of the last three games against southpaws, both coming on rest days for different infielders. The veteran utility man's last start prior to June 5 was May 24, so he isn't even on the short side of a platoon at the moment.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday.

Solano's stay in the minors lasted all of one day, and he'll head right back to the big leagues with Travis Bergen (shoulder) landing on the injured list. Solano should return to the bench role he'd occupied previously for the Giants.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Heads to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Solano hit .222 with an RBI in six games with the Giants, but he'll head back down to the minor leagues to make room on the 25-man roster for Andrew Suarez, who's making his 2019 season debut Monday evening.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Starts against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano started at the keystone Thursday, going 1-for-3 with an RBI in a 12-11 loss to the Rockies.

Solano appears to have stepped right into the the role Yangervis Solarte occupied prior to his release, starting against southpaws and making most of those appearances at second base. The 31-year-old slashed .322/.392/.437 over 97 plate appearances with Triple-A Sacramento prior to his callup, but he has shown little to no power or speed throughout his career, leaving him well off the fantasy radar.

May 7, 2019 11:44 AM
Giants' Donovan Solano: Set for promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants plan to call up Solano from Triple-A Sacramento ahead of Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Along with Solano, the Giants are planning on calling outfielder Mac Williamson up from Sacramento prior to the three-game series in Colorado. Neither Solano nor Williamson possess spots on the 40-man roster, so the Giants will have to remove two players from the roster to facilitate their promotions. The 31-year-old Solano has seen time at second base, third base and shortstop this season and is hitting .322/.392/.437 across 97 plate appearances in the Pacific Coast League. He'll likely serve as a utility man while he's up with the Giants.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Available to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano (head) is listed among the Giants' available reserves for Thursday's Cactus League game against the Reds, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Solano suffered a scare earlier this month when he was struck in the helmet by a pitch, but the veteran infielder's health no longer looks to be in any question. The non-roster invitee is a longshot to break camp with the Giants and will likely be reassigned to the minors in the near future.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Removed after being hit by pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano was removed from Monday's game against the Dodgers after being hit by a pitch on the helmet, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Solano got up relatively quickly, though he was immediately removed from the game as the Giants decided to take no chances. The 31-year-old was able to walk off under his own power and should be considered day-to-day until he's further evaluated.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Joins San Francisco on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano signed a minor-league contract with the Giants earlier in January, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

Solano owns a .257/.306/.331 slash line over 1,168 career big-league plate appearances. The 31-year-old infielder hasn't surfaced in the majors since 2016, however, and is most likely ticketed for Triple-A Sacramento once spring training ends.

Dodgers' Donovan Solano: Lands on minor-league DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Solano was hitting an impressive .370/.419/.507 with three homers and four stolen bases across 38 games with Oklahoma City. Fortunately, the organization only expects him to miss the next 10-to-14 days as a result of the injury.

March 20, 2018 12:44 AM
Dodgers' Donovan Solano: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano was reassigned to the minor leagues following Monday's game against the Athletics, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Solano went 9-for-32 with six RBI and three extra-base hits in 16 spring training games. Although he could find himself on the major-league squad in the near future following Justin Turner's broken wrist, he'll likely head to Triple-A Oklahoma City for now.

Dodgers' Donovan Solano: Agrees to terms with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

Solano spent the entirety of the 2017 season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the Yankees' system, slashing .282/.329/.391 with four home runs and 48 RBI. The second baseman will provide extra organizational depth up the middle for Los Angeles.

March 27, 2017 12:08 PM
Yankees' Donovan Solano: Assigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano was assigned to the Yankees' minor-league camp Monday.

Solano appeared in nine games with the big club a season ago, going 5-for-22 (.227 average) at the dish. With the Yankees relatively healthy in the infield as the regular season approaches, Solano never had a realistic shot at winning an Opening Day roster spot, but as injuries mount over the course of the campaign, he could be called upon if more depth is needed up the middle. Look for Solano to report to Triple-A Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

January 31, 2017 04:30 PM
Yankees' Donovan Solano: Signs minor league deal with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano agreed to a minor league deal with the Yankees on Tuesday.

Solano elected free agency following the 2016 season but is now set to return to the Yankees organization for the upcoming campaign after signing a contract that includes an invitation to spring training. The 29-year-old spent most of 2016 at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he slashed .319/.349/.436. Although he did make his way up to the majors, Solano's numbers at the plate didn't translate as he went just 5-for-22 (.227) over nine games.

October 10, 2016 02:54 PM
Donovan Solano: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano declined his assignment and elected free agency Monday.

Solano had been outrighted off the major league roster to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre earlier in the day, but he'll elect to try his luck on the open market rather than head back to the minors. The 28-year-old hit .227 in nine major league games this year and just .189 in 2015, so he may end up back in the minors wherever he lands.

October 10, 2016 02:44 PM
Yankees' Donovan Solano: Outrighted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

Solano spent the majority of the season in the minors, but did get a September call-up and saw somewhat regular at-bats down the stretch with injuries to players ahead of him on the depth chart. The 28-year-old has been up and down between the majors and minors over the past two years and has mostly been used as a utility-infield option, so he figures to assume a similar role in 2017.
