Heliot Ramos will make his season debut tonight for the Giants, batting seventh as their designated hitter in Colorado.

To clear room for Ramos’ recall from Triple-A Sacramento, the Giants are giving struggling slugger Jorge Soler more time to recover from a shoulder strain.

Ramos, the Giants’ 2017 first-round draft pick, hit .158 in his big-league cameos the previous two seasons, consisting of 34 games (nine hits in 76 at-bats with one home run, two RBI and six walks).

In 30 games at Sacramento, Ramos has hit .296 with eight homers, 23 runs scored, three doubles, two triples and 16 walks.

Soler was placed on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to Sunday. The 11th-year veteran is off to a slow start in his debut season with the Giants, having totaled five home runs with just eight RBI and a .202 batting average, a .294 on-base percentage and a .361 slugging percentage.

He has just three hits in his past 10 games (35 at-bats).

After beating the Rockies 5-0 on Monday behind Kyle Harrison’s seven shutout innings, the Giants will send out Jordan Hicks (2-1) today for his eighth start this season, matching his career total prior to this season (all came with the 2022 Cardinals). Hicks’ 1.89 ERA ranks eighth-best in the majors this season.
