Solano was in line for semi-regular at-bats as the main backup at second base, third base and shortstop. His injury status is worth monitoring ahead of Cincinnati's Opening Day scheduled for Thursday, April 7 against the Atlanta Braves.

The versatile veteran joins Cincinnati after three years with the San Francisco Giants. Solano slashed .280/.344/.404 a year ago and saw regular action as San Francisco's second baseman. He's tallied 400 career games at second base and at least 33 games playing either shortstop or third base.
