Solarte, 30, completed his fourth campaign with the Padres in 2017.
Olivares, 21, showed a blend of power and speed last season, collecting 17 home runs and 20 stolen bases in Single-A. While the vast majority of teams appear to be set at second, teams like the Brewers and Mets could use a long term solution. He has experience playing first base, second base, shortstop and third base. Solarte become the utility player for the Jays much like Marwin Gonzalez for the Astros or Ben Zobrist for the Cubs, and Diaz has time to develop further in the minor leagues. Tulowitzki played in only 66 games because of hamstring and ankle injuries, while Travis underwent surgery on his right knee. In the meantime, the Toronto Blue Jays are looking forward to 2018, hoping to put a disappointing season (76-86) behind them.
"(I am) humbled, honored, truly thankful to serve in this new role for our incredible athletes and organization", said Huffman. There would be growing pains and a period of transition defensively, but you can't afford to lose what he brings to the lineup.
A conference call with Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins was scheduled for later Saturday.
More than anything, Solarte can provide quality depth. Along with Aledmys Diaz, Solarte shores up the infield depth for the Jays in case Troy Tulowitzki or Devon Travis (or...both) miss extended time with yet another injury. Earlier this offseason, San Diegotraded for Chase Headley.
Of course, that leads to the problem of trying to find a fit for Travis. Being critical of (what we've done up to this point), that's absolutely fine. Carlos Asuaje is also an option at second base, albeit an inexperienced one. The Athletic reported the acqisition of Solarte is not a precursor to a Donaldson trade. Oliveras is ranked as San Diego's no. 24 prospect, according to MLB.com. However, I do still believe the pros outweigh the cons when it comes to Travis. Meanwhile, Carkuff shot through Toronto's farm system as a reliever last season. He is very much a flier for the Padres and not someone the Jays should worry about losing.
Ultimately, both teams should benefit from this trade.
While the free agent market continues to be at a standstill, the Toronto Blue Jays and San Diego Padres were involved in a trade. He is owed $4.125 million this year.
