"He's going to get an opportunity to get extended playing time," Redmond said. "He's going to play second, probably play some third. We'll probably mix and match him and [Ed] Lucas on third and second. It's good to have that versatility, with Lucas being able to pay all those positions."
Lucas has primarily been a third baseman, making his 26th start there Tuesday night, and has eight starts at second.
Solano missed nearly all of May and June with a left side injury after hitting .263 with 25 hits in the season's opening month. Since returning on July 2, he has primarily been used as a pinch-hitter, but Redmond said he hopes to use the 25-year-old more consistently as a piece of his lineup.
"He needs to play and get extended at-bats," Redmond said. "When he went out and 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. So hopefully he can get himself going and help to contribute to the club."
