When the Giants opened the regular season, second base appeared to be a position of strength as the club returned reigning Silver Slugger Award winner Donovan Solano and had brought in free agent Tommy La Stella during the offseason.
Five weeks into the season, both Solano and La Stella have landed on the injured list.
After Solano suffered a moderate right calf strain on April 21 against the Phillies, La Stella strained his left hamstring on Sunday against the Padres and was placed on the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Colorado Rockies.
With their top two second basemen unavailable, the Giants recalled Jason Vosler from the taxi squad Tuesday and will likely use him in the same role La Stella held before his injury.
The Giants also announced left-handed pitcher Conner Menez has been designated as the team’s “27th man” for Tuesday’s doubleheader, which gives the club another southpaw out of the bullpen.
