Giants' Donovan Solano: Making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano is making progress in his recovery from his strained right calf, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The veteran infielder has been out for just shy of two weeks but advanced to running sprints Monday. It's not clear exactly when he'll be back, but the Giants could use him soon, as fellow second baseman Tommy La Stella is expected to be out until June with a strained hamstring.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Officially placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano (calf) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Solano suffered a right calf strain Wednesday against the Phillies, and manager Gabe Kapler said that the infielder will miss "some time." It's not yet clear when Solano will be able to return, but Mauricio Dubon and Wilmer Flores should see increased playing time while the 33-year-old is sidelined.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Out with calf strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano suffered a right calf strain Wednesday against the Phillies and will miss "some time," per manager Gabe Kapler, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

It sounds like Solano is ticketed for the injured list. This should open up some playing time for Mauricio Dubon and Wilmer Flores in the short term.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano exited Wednesday's game against the Phillies in the top of the sixth inning with an apparent leg injury, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Solano doubled in the top of the sixth inning Wednesday, but he pulled up while running from second to third base and was immediately removed from the game. The exact nature and severity of the injury aren't yet clear.

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

Solano went 2-for-3 in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Cincinnati.

The infielder is now hitting .353 in the young season, but he only has three RBI and is slugging just .412. Solano has started just two of San Francisco's last five games, and it appears the 33-year-old will not be the everyday starter at second base in 2021. His lack of base-stealing prowess and power potential will keep his numbers modest, but as long as Solano continues making contact at a high rate, he'll hold legitimate fantasy value in deeper formats.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Records first steal since 2014
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano went 2-for-4 with two singles and a stolen base in Monday's 3-2 win over the Padres.

Solano continued his hot start, as he's recorded at least two hits in all four games this season. The stolen base may end up being his only one this year, as he attempted exactly one steal in his last four seasons, with his last MLB swipe coming way back in 2014. With the 33-year-old making quality contact, it's been hard for manager Gabe Kapler to sit him. However, there's a chance he sits Tuesday in favor of Tommy La Stella with right-hander Yu Darvish on the bump.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Collects three hits Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs and two RBI in Friday's victory over Seattle.

Solano broke open a 3-3 tie with a seventh-inning double, marking his second double in his first two games. The veteran has started at second base in each of the Giants' first two contests, going 5-for-10 with three runs scored.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano is starting Thursday's game against the Mariners, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Solano should serve primarily as a backup to begin the year with Tommy La Stella and Brandon Belt available, but he'll start against left-hander Marco Gonzales on Opening Day. The veteran will play second base and bat third against the Mariners.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Could begin season at 2B
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano could begin the season as the starter at second base with Tommy La Stella at first base if Brandon Belt isn't ready to return after recovering from COVID-19 and mono, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Belt has returned to spring training games, but it's not clear if he'll be ready for Opening Day. Evan Longoria may also not be ready to play in the field as he works his way back from plantar fasciitis (the Giants have the DH at Seattle the first series), which could move Solano to third base. Solano is expected to get regular starts in the San Francisco lineup, but he'll be used in a multi-position role. Solano is hitting .441 (15-for-34) with three home runs this spring.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Loses arbitration case
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano lost his arbitration case to the Giants on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Solano had filed for a $3.9 salary for 2021, but he'll have to settle for a one-year, $3.25 million deal after the arbiter's ruling. The 33-year-old should have to compete for playing time in the middle infield in 2021 after the Giants signed Tommy La Stella during the offseason.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Resting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants' Donovan Solano: Three-hit performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

Solano has now registered two three-hit performances in two of his last three games and seems to be heating up at the plate, hitting safely in five of seven contests this month and slashing .462/.500/.808 in that stretch. He also has six extra-base hits across that span after racking up seven during the entire month of August.

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

Solano went 3-for-3 with a two-run homer, a double, and a walk in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Solano needed only a triple to complete the cycle but still enjoyed a perfect day at the dish Sunday. His two-run shot in the sixth inning proved to be the go-ahead knock in the Giants win. The 34-year-old owns a terrific .344/.388/.516 slash line with 27 RBI and 16 extra-base hits across 139 plate appearances this season.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants' Donovan Solano: Makes history with six-RBI night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano went 4-for-6 with a pair of doubles, two runs and six RBI in Tuesday's 23-5 win over Colorado.

Prior to Tuesday, no team in MLB history had ever seen three of its players drive in six runs in one game. Solano was part of the history-making trio (along with Alex Dickerson and Brandon Crawford) who changed that when he doubled to left field in the eighth inning to collect his fifth and six RBI of the contest. The 32-year-old pushed his already-robust .327 average to .345 with the memorable performance. He also upped his season RBI total to 24.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Hits walkoff homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solano went 1-for-6 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

Three Giants recorded three or more hits in this game and while Solano also accounted for one of the team's 14 knocks, he delivered the biggest one -- his two-run shot in the bottom of the 11th inning carried San Francisco to a huge win over their division rivals. It was Solano's second homer of the season, but the second baseman is still hitting an impressive .351 with a .896 OPS this year.

Giants' Donovan Solano: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
