    If they get similar playing time as Goins and Barney, Diaz and Solarte could be 4 WAR improvements EACH.

    We got coverage in the middle infield for when Tulo and Travis inevitably hit the DL and it came fairly cheap so I like it

    Probably could try a Solarte/Pearce platoon in LF.

    Ugh. If this guy is going to become an MLB talent, it will be on San Diego's PD team to do so. And good on them if they succeed. Trading an okay prospect from Lansing is not a high cost trade no matter how it is spun.

    Like this move. Not sure why it took so long for the Jays to upgrade on their middle IF depth.

    As for San Diego, they can afford to make this deal, as they still have Chase Headley, who they reacquired from the Yankees, Freddy Galvis at SS who they picked up from the Phillies, and Carlos Asauje at 2B, along with utility player Jose Pirela, who can play all over the diamond.

    They also have Cory Spangenberg, along with prospects Luis Urias, Allen Cordoba(who is ticketed for AA or AAA this year now that his rule 5 status is done), Javier Guerra and Fernando Tatis Jr. in the system. They could afford to make this deal.. plus they wanted to get his salary off the books long term (Headley is a free agent after 2018, and will go off San Diego's book after this coming season).

    Yep. Good asset management. They wonít (canít) rebuild so just stockpile as many assets as possible and improvise. I like that strategy, .

    I think Pirela is pencilled in as their LF

    Yep. Diaz and Solarte are some very nice depth upgrades with proven upside, and the cost for both was basically just absorbing their salaries.

    Depth is nice, but is everyone comfortable with our primary options? If Tulo and it Travis flame out in 2018 will the depth pieces be able to provide the type of production you need from a team that wants to contend? If they're expected to be every day players...

    At the moment, yes. They are also getting Jankowski and Dickerson back in their OF in 2018 as well, as they're finally healthy. So Pirela might end up being a super-utility player.

    FYI, Jared Carkuff also is going to SD--35th round pick in 2016,

    Woops, think I mispoke earlier. But here's the projected improvement we can count on compared to last year.

    In 362 PA last year, Barney was worth -0.6 WAR.
    In 459 PA last year, Goins was worth -0.3 WAR.

    In 324 PA, Steamer projects 1 WAR for Diaz.
    In 339 PA, Steamer projects 0.9 WAR for Solarte.

    So just kind of eyeballing it, we are looking at a 3 WAR improvement or so from our backup middle infielders.

    You don't like the trade?

    Anyone know if Hernandez is out of options in 2018? Roster resource isn't working for me.
