Giants places outfielder Jorge Soler on the 10-day injured list

DENVER – The San Francisco Giants on Wednesday placed outfielder-designated hitter Jorge Soler on the 10-day injured list due to a right shoulder strain and filled his roster spot by recalling outfielder Heliot Ramos from their Triple-A affiliate in Sacramento.

Soler, whose placement on the IL was made retroactive to Sunday, had missed the last three games. He hit .202 with five home runs and 8 RBIs. Soler joined the Giants this offseason, signing a three-year, $42 million deal as a free agent. “Every time he sat in the cage and tried to swing, it hurt him, so there’s no way it could last a few more days,” Giants manager Bob Melvin said. “We’ll try to let him rest and get past this thing.”
