Donovan Solano returns to role as starting second baseman


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2013) With the demotion of Derek Dietrich to the minors, Marlins infielder Donovan Solano takes over again as the starting second baseman.

"I know I can do good things," Solano said, per the Sun-Sentinel. "Any ballplayer that plays regularly would find himself in a better position to do good things. I'll keep doing what I've always done, staying focused on my job, working hard and leaving everything in God's hands so things come out well."

Prior to going on the disabled list with an oblique injury in early May, Solano was hitting .278. He was optioned to the minors once healthy and hit just .150 in his first 11 games (three starts) when he was recalled in early July. Solano has collected five hits in his last two games -- both starts.

"When he went on the DL he was probably our hottest hitter and we really haven't had a chance to get him back in the lineup and get him going," manager Mike Redmond said. "It was tough for Solano. The role he was in, we weren't getting much out of him. He needs to play and get extended at-bats. He's going to get an opportunity to get extended playing time. He's going to play second. He'll probably play some third. We'll probably mix and match him and [Ed] Lucas. It's good to have that versatility."

We have to sit down and figure out where these guys are at. We knew we would be getting guys back. Of course it all works out you get them all back the same week. It's a good situation.
