Yangervis Solarte finished 3-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's loss at Arizona.
The Venezuelan switch-hitter has hit safely in six straight, including a pair of three-hit games to open the current series in Arizona. Solarte continues to start regularly and he has a penchant for collecting hits in bunches. He is trending up right now and worth a look as a nice mid-tier DFS value while running hot.
Brandon Crawford has been diagnosed with a right groin strain.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the club is hoping to get an MRI before Crawford goes on bereavement leave Wednesday. This could turn into a 10-day disabled list stint for the 30-year-old shortstop, who injured his groin Tuesday on an eighth-inning single against the Dodgers. He'll be away from the Giants through Friday at least to attend funeral services for his sister-in-law. Eduardo Nunez took over at shortstop on Tuesday night.
X-rays turned up negative on Jhoulys Chacin's left foot.
Chacin underwent tests after fouling a ball off the foot on Monday. He's expected to take his next turn in the Padres' rotation and will try to bounce back from Monday night's seven-run drubbing versus the Diamondbacks.
Leury Garcia went 3-for-4 with a double Tuesday in the White Sox's 10-5 win over the Royals.
Garcia is getting more playing time over the slumping Jacob May and is hitting .318/.348/.500 in 44 at-bats. Absolutely nothing in Garcia's track record suggests that he'll continue to hit, but then, it's not like May figures to do anything either.
Rule 5 pick Dylan Covey allowed two runs over four innings Tuesday in a no-decision against the Royals.
Covey needed 86 pitches to get through four, so he wasn't allowed to go for his first major league victory, even though the White Sox were up 4-2 after four. He'll likely be needed to remain in the rotation and face the Royals again next week.
Clayton Richard allowed six earned runs, eight hits and three walks while recording just two punchouts over 3 2/3 innings in a loss Tuesday in Arizona.
Richard turned in a quality start last time out against the Diamondbacks, but they obviously made the right adjustments at home in the second meeting. He'll look to bounce back in San Francisco on Sunday opposite Ty Blach. He took his first loss of the season against the Giants at Petco Park, allowing five runs - four earned - over six innings on April 9.
Danny Duffy was roughed up by the White Sox on Tuesday, surrendering six runs in 4 2/3 innings.
Duffy's velocity is down a bit and his strikeout rate has followed, though he's actually getting more swings and misses than ever. He was due for the ERA correction after coming into this one at 1.32 in four starts. He's at 2.81 now.
Todd Frazier doubled twice, knocked in three runs and walked Tuesday against the Royals.
Frazier is still batting just .156, but he'll come around. It didn't help that he was battling the flu for over a week.
