Donovan Solano will replace Ed Lucas (hand) on the Opening Day roster.
Solano was optioned to the minors earlier in the day Thursday, but he'll rejoin the club now that Ed Lucas is headed to the disabled list with a non-displaced fracture in his left hand. While he could see some playing time with Rafael Furcal also sidelined, he doesn't offer much in the way of fantasy value. Mar 27 - 4:52 PM

Donovan Solano left Saturday's game against the Tigers after being hit in the helmet by a pitch.

Solano was able to walk off under his own power, so that's at least a good sign. Still, with one more game left in the season it's likely we've seen the last of the second baseman in 2013. Placido Polanco replaced Solano in the game.

Donovan Solano went 3-for-4 with two runs scored against the Cubs on Tuesday.

Solano doubled twice in the game, with his second of the night bringing in two runs to pad the Marlins' lead in the eighth inning. The second baseman also stole a base, his third of the year. The 25-year-old has taken over everyday duties at the keystone for the Marlins and is hitting a forgettable .252/.305/.307.

Donovan Solano went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Solano knocked three singles on the night, driving in his 17th run in the loss. He's been getting the majority of the starts at second base in recent weeks, but his lack of much offense makes him a non-factor in fantasy leagues outside of NL-only leagues.

Donovan Solano ripped a two-run homer in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

Solano's blast in the ninth extended the Marlins' lead to 5-0, and the bomb turned out to be the winning runs. He has six hits in 16 at-bats since re-taking the starting second base job.

Marlins activated 2B Donovan Solano from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A New Orleans.

Solano has made a full recovery from his strained left intercostal muscle and spent the last week playing in minor league rehab games. But the Marlins are happy with rookie Derek Dietrich's production at second base. Solano should be called back up to serve as a reserve infielder at some point later this summer. For now, the 25-year-old will get everyday at-bats in Triple-A.

Marlins placed 2B Donovan Solano on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 4, with a strained left intercostal muscle.

Solano originally felt discomfort during batting practice Saturday and hasn't made much progress in recent days, so the Marlins are hoping that some extended rest will do the trick. The 25-year-old is hitting .278/.333/.324 with one home run, five RBI and a .657 OPS through 30 games this season. Nick Green will take his place on the active roster.

Solano was scratched from the lineup on Saturday due to tightness in his left side and said Sunday that he wasn't feeling any better. He's likely dealing with a strained oblique, so expect him to be out at least three weeks. Nick Green is expected to replace him on the roster.
