News: Solano went 3-for-5 with a home run during Wednesday's Grapefruit League loss to the Tigers.
Impact: Solano continues to swing a hot stick as he vies for a backup job on Miami's Opening Day roster. He's pushed his spring average up to .313 (10-for-32) with the three-hit assault while playing all over the infield during the exhibition season. The veteran appears to have the inside track on one of the final spots on the Marlins' bench.

News: Solano has six hits in 23 Grapefruit League at-bats as he competes for one of the Marlins' final two bench spots in camp, MLB.com reports.
Impact: The Marlins' lack of a competent second baseman has given Solano plenty of opportunity to establish himself as a viable starter at the position in seasons past. Thanks to the offseason addition of Dee Gordon, however, the 27-year-old Solano is now fighting to hold onto a bench job in camp. Reid Brignac and Scott Sizemore are in the mix with Solano to earn a spot as a utility infielder.
