Miami Marlins news: Donovan Solano injured, to disabled list with left-sided "discomfort"

Mike Ehrmann

The Miami Marlins continue to suffer from a major injury bug, as starting second baseman Donovan Solano is now headed for the disabled list with left-sided "discomfort."

The Miami Marlins have suffered a slew of injuries all season long, and it seems the injuries are continuing to pile up. The latest victim of the bug is Donovan Solano, who is heading to the disabled list thanks to left-sided "discomfort." Solano was pulled from the starting lineup initially two days ago versus the Philadelphia Phillies after he felt the discomfort during a batting practice session in the cages a few hours before the game. Solano missed the Saturday and Sunday victories by the Marlins over the Phillies, replaced in the lineup by Chris Valaika at second base.

The thought was that, if Solano could not improve, he would be the next to head to the DL, and it seems that is going to be the case now. The Marlins just recovered a middle infielder from injury, as Adeiny Hechavarria returned to the lineup during the Phillies series on Thursday after a 15-day DL stint. Now manager Mike Redmond says the team will have to deal with more injury adversity.

"He's no better. He's the same," Redmond said on Monday afternoon before Miami opened a three-game set against the Padres. "We're going to have to figure out what we're going to do. We're playing short-handed a lot. He can go out there and play defense, but he cannot turn it loose swinging the bat. We're going to have to figure it out, and we may have to make a move."

It is likely that the Marlins will re-promote utility infielder Nick Green, who was just designated for assignment and outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans to make room for Hechavarria. With Solano hurting, Chris Valaika figures to get even more starting time. Valaika is hitting just .228/.274/.368 (.280 wOBA). Solano was not doing much better with a .278/.333/.324 (.287 wOBA) line.
