Solarte, 30, has been on the trading block all winter and has finally been moved. In 2017, he was good for 1.3 WAR, while hitting to a .255/.314/.416 clip over 512 plate appearances. He also clubbed a career high 18 home runs and had a 93 wRC+ and .311 wOBA.
In the field, Solarte spent a majority of time at the keystone, logging 628.2 innings, -2 defensive runs saved and a -0.4 UZR.
He is scheduled to earn $4 million this year with options for $5.5 million and $8 million in 2019 and 2020.
Going back to San Diego is outfield prospect Edward Olivares, who spent last season at two separate Single-A levels in the Blue Jays system. MLB Pipeline ranked him as Toronto’s No. 18 overall prospect.
In the deal, the Blue Jays are also getting a lesser second piece, according to Robert Murray of Fan Rag.
