Blue Jays Acquire Utility Infielder Yangervis Solarte From The Padres

Published

on

The San Diego Padres have traded switch-hitting utility infielder Yangervis Solarte to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for outfielder Edward Olivares and right-handed pitcher Jared Carkuff.

The Padres announced the deal on Saturday via their official Twitter account.

Solarte, 30, had been with the Padres since July of 2014. He was traded from the New York Yankees to the Padres in the deal that sent Chase Headley to the Bronx. In 2017, Solarte batted .255 with 18 home runs and 64 RBIs.

Throughout his career, Solarte has played every infield position and has also been utilized as a designated hitter. Last season, he mainly played second base for the Padres. Considering that the Blue Jays have Josh Donaldson at third base, Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop and Justin Smoak at first base, Solarte wil probably see a lot of his playing time at second base.

On Saturday, the Padres also re-signed relief pitcher Craig Stamen to a two-year contract. In 60 appearances during the 2017 season, Stamen was 2-3 with a 3.14 ERA.
