The 30-year-old Solarte hit .255 with 18 homers and 64 RBIs in 128 games last season for the Padres. He made his big league debut with the New York Yankees in 2014.

The 21-year-old Olivares hit .269 with 17 home runs, 72 RBIs and 20 stolen bases in 120 Class A games with Lansing and Dunedin this year. From Venezuela, he signed with Toronto as an international free agent in 2014.

Carkuff, 24, was 3-4 with eight saves and a 3.86 ERA in 34 relief appearances between Single-A Vancouver, Lansing and Dunedin and Triple-A Buffalo last season. He was selected by Toronto in the 35th round of the June 2016 draft out of Austin Peay.

Do the Blue Jays want to keep Josh Donaldson long-term?The free agent class of 2018-2019 is one that we’ve been hearing about for what seems like forever, featuring stars like Bryce Harper, Manny Machado and Clayton Kershaw. In fact, some theorize that is the main cause of this offseason’s snail-like pace. Either way, part of what makes this particular class intriguing is that it has seemed all along like none of the biggest stars would sign extensions with their current team to take them off the market. Generally speaking, at least some of the big names come off the market before it even opens.
