Tulo is an ungrateful pansy that's made of glass.

Hope he doesn't come back.

He will come back and if we have any hope of making the playoffs he needs to be playing at least 140 games.

By the looks of things nothing. They either have a bunch of things in the fire and waiting for one shoe to drop or are offering below market value to the free agents just to say later we were in on him. Time will tell.

Pair of minor leaguers

Toronto is reportedly sending outfielder Edward Oliveras to San Diego in the deal. Oliveras was signed out of Venezuela in 2014, and hit .269/.327/.468 with 17 home runs, 27 doubles, 10 triples and 20 stolen bases in 120 games between both Class-A teams in the Blue Jays’ system. He turns 22 in March.

Also headed to the Padres is pitcher Jared Carkuff, per Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union Tribune. The 24-year-old right-hander posted a 3.86 ERA in 34 relief appearances across three levels in 2017, with 51 strikeouts and 15 walks in 63 innings. He was drafted by Toronto in the 35th round out of Austin Peay in 2016.

Solarte is the kind of player you add when your close, maybe this is just insurance in case Travis is done

Not only Travis, but also a cheaper and equally versatile replacement for Ryan Goins. Solarte plays all four infield positions.

Now, I haven't watched him regularly to know how his defense compares to Goins. But last season, i thought Goins' defense regressed from the year before, albeit still good in the grand scheme of things. But his offensive numbers are certainly much better than Ryan Goins.
