Reds' Donovan Solano: Shifts to 60-day IL

The Reds transferred Solano (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list Monday. The transaction shouldn't alter Solano's timeline for making his Reds debut, as he was already in line to miss the first two months of the season after having yet to resume running at 100 percent since receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection in late April to address lingering pain in his left hamstring. Solano hasn't been shut down from activities entirely, but since he still needs to complete his running program, incorporate full on-field baseball activities into his workout regimen and take at-bats in simulated games before heading out on a rehab assignment, he's likely multiple weeks away from coming off the IL.

Reds' Donovan Solano: Not yet running at 100 percent

Reds manager David Bell said Sunday that Solano (hamstring) is running at approximately 75 percent, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Since suffering what was initially expected to be a short-term left hamstring injury late in spring training, Solano has made slow progress in his recovery. Nearly two months after suffering the injury, Solano still isn't back to running at 100 percent, though he could reach that benchmark within the next week. Even if that's the case, Solano will still need to prove he can perform all baseball activities before heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment, which will likely consist of several games. He doesn't appear likely to make his Reds debut before the first week of June, which could result in him being transferred to the 60-day injured list if Cincinnati needs to open up a spot on the 40-man roster.

Reds' Donovan Solano: Still experiencing soreness

Solano (hamstring) is still experiencing soreness following his PRP injection, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Solano was shut down from running when he received his PRP injection April 28, but he's still managing soreness over a week later. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to resume baseball activities, but once he does, he'll likely need time to ramp back up following his shutdown.

Reds' Donovan Solano: Shut down following injection

Solano (hamstring) received a PRP injection Tuesday and has been shut down from running for five to seven days, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The veteran infielder has been out all year after injuring his left hamstring in late March. While initial reports suggested he wouldn't required a long stay on the injured list, things evidently haven't gone as planned. He'll still have to ramp back up after he's allowed to resume running, so his season debut is likely still a few weeks away.

Reds' Donovan Solano: Pushing to return

Solano (hamstring) took a few swings Friday during Mike Minor's simulated game, not content to just track pitches, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "I feel better every single day," Solano said. "I try to push myself every single day to get better and better. I don't know how much more time I need, but I think we're moving at a good pace."

Reds' Donovan Solano: Slated to hit in sim game

Solano (hamstring) will hit in a simulated game Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Although Solano is on the injured list to begin the season, manager David Bell is optimistic that the utility man won't have a lengthy absence. His participation in Friday's sim game echoes that optimism, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him begin a minor-league rehab assignment next week if his hitting session goes well.

Reds' Donovan Solano: Won't be ready for Opening Day

Manager David Bell said Wednesday that Solano (hamstring) will begin the regular season on the injured list, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Solano sustained a left hamstring injury Tuesday against the Rangers and feels slightly better Wednesday, but he'll still be held out to begin the regular season. An exact timetable for his return isn't yet clear, though manager David Bell suggested that Solano's stint on the IL "may not be very long," per Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer. Solano was expected to be a fixture in the lineup against left-handed pitching, but his absence could clear the way for the righty-hitting Brandon Drury to make the Opening Day roster as a utility man.

Reds' Donovan Solano: Suffers hamstring injury

Solano exited Tuesday's game against Texas with a left hamstring injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Solano walked off the field with a team trainer after hurting himself while running the bases. The exact nature and severity of the injury are not yet clear. He's expected to find his way into the lineup at least against lefties this season, but the rest of the Reds' starting infielders could each receive a few more at-bats if he winds up missing time.

Reds' Donovan Solano: Sustains leg injury Tuesday

Solano exited Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Rangers in the third inning with an apparent left leg injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Solano, who picked up the start at shortstop, went 1-for-2 with an RBI before leaving the game when he appeared to hurt himself while advancing to second base on Tyler Stephenson's base hit. The Reds will presumably evaluate him in the locker room and provide an update on his condition after the game.

Reds' Donovan Solano: Back in action Sunday

Solano (side) is starting at third base and batting sixth in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Rockies, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Solano had been sidelined since being hit by a pitch Tuesday against the Dodgers, but he'll rejoin the lineup after taking a few days to recover. The 34-year-old is poised to work in a utility role after inking a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Reds in mid-March.

Reds' Donovan Solano: Gets $4.5M deal from Cincy

Solano agreed Wednesday with the Reds on a one-year, $4.5 million contract, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Solano has seen the overwhelming majority of his innings at second base throughout his career, but unless the Reds elect to move reigning NL Rookie of the Year Jonathan India off the keystone, the 34-year-old will have to settle for most of his reps on the left side of the infield in 2022. Even with Cincinnati dealing Eugenio Suarez to Seattle earlier this week, the shortstop and third base positions still appear somewhat crowded, as all of Kyle Farmer, Jose Barrero and Mike Moustakas are competing for work at either position. Given the success he's had against lefty pitching over the past three seasons in San Francisco, Solano would probably make the most sense as a short-side platoon mate at the hot corner with the lefty-hitting Moustakas. From 2019 through 2021, Solano turned in wRC+ marks of 125, 137 and 121 versus southpaws.
