Giants manager Gabe Kapler says INF Donovan Solano (calf) could begin a rehab assignment during the team's upcoming road trip.
Solano is continuing to ramp up in his return from a calf strain. He's likely targeting a return by the end of May.
The San Francisco Giants placed Donovan Solano on the injured list Thursday due to a right calf strain.
This was expected after Solano suffered the injury against the Phillies on Wednesday. Relief pitcher Gregory Santos was recalled by the Giants as a result.
Second baseman Donovan Solano went 1-for-3 with a single and strikeout as the Giants were blanked by the Reds 3-0 on Monday.
Solano was one of two Giants batters to reach via a base hit, Buster Posey was the other. This was an ugly night for the San Francisco offense as they provided starter Aaron Sanchez with no run support whatsoever. Solano is having a steady start to the season, though, batting .323/.333/.387 with three RBI over 31 at-bats. There's not much power upside here but Solano is a good source for batting average and runs if the SF offense can pick it up.
Donovan Solano went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI, two runs scored, and a strikeout in the Giants 6-3 win over the Mariners on Friday.
Solano broke up a 3-3 tie in the top of the seventh inning when he smacked a Drew Steckenrider fastball down the left-field line to score Brandon Crawford and Mike Yastrzemski. He would come around to score on an Evan Longoria single later in the frame, which would put the game out of reach for Seattle. Solano has experienced a quiet career resurgence in San Francisco over the last few seasons. He's put up a .328 batting average across 405 at-bats between 2019-20 and is off to a hot start this season with five hits, including two doubles in his first two games. He could have a big season in San Francisco as long as he stays near the top of the batting order.
Donovan Solano went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in the Giants 6-2 loss to the Padres on Saturday.
Solano had a rough day at the dish, stranding five runners in a game where runs are a premium for SF, and matching a season-high with three strikeouts. The second baseman has put together a fantastic year for the Giants, though, with a .328/.366/.466 batting line to go along with 13 doubles, four home runs, and 23 RBI across 189 at-bats.
