      Padres' Matt Szczur: Remains with organization

      Matt Szczur has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A El Paso.Szczur was designated for assignment last Sunday, but passed through waivers and will remain with the organization. With the four-man rotation of Wil Myers, Manuel Margot, Hunter Renfroe and Travis Jankowski currently holding down the San Diego outfield, there was no reason to keep Szczur on the 40-man, especially after he hit just .187 through 57 games this season. He'll need to turn things around in the minors to have a chance at a September callup.

      Padres' Matt Szczur: Formally dropped from 40-man roster

      The San Diego Padres designated Matt Szczur for assignment Sunday.With Wil Myers returning from the disabled list a little over a week earlier, Szczur became the fifth outfielder for San Diego and had seen limited action of late. The Padres decided Szczur's roster spot would be better used on a reserve infielder, so Carlos Asuaje was called up from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move. Szczur will likely report to El Paso if he clears waivers within the next few days.

      Matt Szczur went 1-for-2 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 9-4 loss to the Giants.Getting a start in right field and hitting seventh, the 28-year-old connected on his first homer of the season. Even with Jose Pirela seeing more time at second base and Wil Myers (oblique) and Hunter Renfroe (elbow) sidelined, Szczur hasn't been able to work his way into consistent at-bats, and his lackluster .250/.294/.375 slash line is a big reason why.
