Donovan Solano went 3-for-5 and homered off the Tigers' Alfredo Simon on Wednesday.

Solano, in the running for a bench spot, is hitting .313/.371/.469 in 32 at-bats. He probably will be the Marlins' primary backup infielder, since he offers more glove than Derek Dietrich and more of a bat than Miguel Rojas. Reid Brignac is another option.

Donovan Solano reached all three times he was up and scored twice Monday as the Marlins beat Florida International 7-2.

Several Marlins backup infield candidates had nice days, with Reid Brignac going 2-for-2 with a double and two RBI, Don Kelly delivering a two-run double and Jordany Valdespin going 1-for-2 with a walk from the leadoff spot. The Marlins are committed to Jeff Baker, Ichiro Suzuki and backup catcher Jeff Mathis for the bench, leaving two spots for Solano, Brignac, Kelly, Valdespin, Derek Dietrich, Miguel Rojas, Reed Johnson and Tyler Colvin. Solano and Rojas probably have the edge for one spot, with the other going to another outfield option, most likely Kelly or Johnson.
