    ... or I could be wrong. I wonder what the catch is? He should be worth a lot more than that imo.

    Edward Olivares, who's going to SD, is a OF prospect who ranked #18 on the Blue Jays prospects according to MLB.com. He had a strong year in Lansing with decent power and speed, but doesn't project as a major piece long term..

    if Edward Olivares is considered the first major piece along with the second minor piece we are doing quite alright here.

    I think we all would have been a lot happier if Atkins was the one negotiating the Dickey trade.

    This is a good trade. Infield depth has been improved significantly, and on the cheap this offseason.

    This is basically how we will become good. Shatkins have 0 risk tolerance. Every small move they make will only be if it's a clear win like this. We will just slowly stockpile players with surplus value.

    I went to fangraphs for the sole purpose of finding where Yangervis Solarte ranks and not surprised to see he is #1 lol. Slow off season.

    Edward Olivares, OF, High-A Dunedin
    Hidden by the noise of the monster seasons put together by Vladito and Bichette was Olivares. In his first full season of minor league ball, the 21-year-old displayed five tools that look to play close to major-league average. Like with many young, low minors prospects, the swing has some noise and there are gains that need to be made in terms of pitch recognition. However, above-average bat speed and a frame that has room for growth give hope for the swing. The carrying tools are speed and defense. On the bases, he’s a fluid runner that displays a second gear when needed with his plus raw speed. That said speed allows for a lot of ground to be covered in the outfield and Olivares has shown the ability to play all three positions. The arm is average for right but would play above average in center and left. This versatility combined with speed give a floor of a second division major league outfielder with a chance to become above average if the bat continues to advance. —Nathan Graham

    Olivares is a lot more intriguing than this blurb makes him out to be. There is real upside there, albeit with obvious swing/miss concerns.
