Diamondbacks' Carlos Asuaje: Joins Arizona on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Asuaje moved to the Korean Baseball Organization over the offseason but didn't make it through a full season overseas. The 27-year-old had a .196/.286/.280 slash line in 218 plate appearances with the Padres last season.

Carlos Asuaje: Officially heads to Korea
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje was purchased by the Lotte Giants of the Korean Baseball Organization from the Rangers on Wednesday.

As expected, Asuaje will head overseas after the Rangers claimed him off waivers from San Diego earlier this month. The infielder played in 79 games for the Padres last year, slashing .196/.286/.280 with two home runs and 19 RBI.

Carlos Asuaje: Heads to KBO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is expected to be purchased by the Lotte Giants of the Korean Baseball Organization from the Rangers on Sunday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

Texas claimed Asuaje off waivers from San Diego, but he didn't figure to be anything more than a reserve infielder if he did stick around. Instead, he'll seemingly be headed to the hitter-friendly KBO, where he'll presumably work to recoup his value and garner more interest on the free-agent market in the future.

Rangers' Carlos Asuaje: Claimed off waivers by Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Asuaje has appeared in 175 games over the last three seasons with the Padres, hitting .240/.312/.329. Those numbers are acceptable enough for a utility infielder but hardly make him a fantasy asset, and the fact that he doesn't play shortstop may make it harder for him to win a bench spot in Texas.

Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje was designated for assignment by San Diego on Friday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Asuaje played in 79 games for the Padres this past year but slashed a dreadful .196/.286/.280 with just two home runs and 19 RBI. This move allowed the club to free up another spot on the 40-man roster while Asuaje will take a spin through waivers to determine if he will remain in the organization.

Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.

Asuaje was up for just five days this time around and did not receive a start. He'll be replaced on the roster by Luis Urias, who was called up in a corresponding move. Asuaje will likely return to San Diego when rosters expand in September.

Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Recalled from El Paso
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje was called up from Triple-A El Paso prior to Thursday's game against the Rockies.

Asuaje will take the place of Christian Villanueva, who was placed on the 10-day DL with a fractured finger in a corresponding move. Across 75 games with the Padres this year, Asuaje has slashed just .199/.290/.285 with two home runs, 19 RBI and one stolen base. Even with Villanueva on the shelf, don't expect Asuaje to see much playing time moving forward.

Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Monday, Bill Center of MLB.com reports.

Asuaje was sent back to the minors to clear a roster spot for Wil Myers, who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move. The 26-year-old hit just .095/.204/.167 across 18 games since the All-Star break, bringing his season slash line down to an unsightly .199/.290/.285.

Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers.

Even with a right-hander (Chase Anderson) toeing the rubber for the opposition, Asuaje will stick on the bench for a fifth straight game. Cory Spangenberg will start in his place Tuesday, hitting eighth.

August 5, 2018 06:32 PM
Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Remains on bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Cubs.

Asuaje will hit the bench for the fourth straight game with Cubs left-hander Jon Lester taking the mound. The 26-year-old is also 0-for-27 over his past 11 games as Jose Pirela gets another start at second base for the Padres.

Padres' Carlos Asuaje: On bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is not in Saturday's lineup versus the Cubs.

Asuaje will remain on the bench for a third straight game as Cory Spangenberg picks up a start at the keystone. With left-hander Jon Lester on the mound for Chicago on Sunday, there's a decent chance Asuaje will be withheld from the starting lineup once again.

August 3, 2018 11:40 AM
Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Out again versus left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is not in the lineup against the Cubs on Friday.

Asuaje was left out of the starting nine for the second straight day with another southpaw (Jose Quintana) on the hill for Chicago. Jose Pirela will grab another start at second base and bat seventh.

August 2, 2018 05:12 PM
Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Not in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is out of the lineup against the Cubs on Thursday.

Asuaje will get the night off with left-hander Mike Montgomery on the mound. In his place, Jose Pirela will man the keystone and bat eighth.

Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Out of Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is not in the lineup against the Giants on Monday.

Asuaje will take a seat with left-hander Derek Holland on the mound for San Francisco. In his absence, Jose Pirela will man second base and bat sixth.

July 28, 2018 05:08 PM
Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Sitting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is out of Saturday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

With southpaw Patrick Corbin on the hill, Asuaje, who is in an 0-for-14 funk in his last five games, takes a seat. Jose Pirela will start at the keystone and hit seventh.

July 22, 2018 04:28 PM
Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Sitting out back end of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is out of the lineup for the second game of the Padres' doubleheader Sunday against the Phillies.

Asuaje picked up the start at second base in the Padres' 10-2 win in Game 1, finishing 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two runs and an RBI. He'll give way to Jose Pirela at the keystone in the final game of the series.

July 15, 2018 03:32 PM
Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Gets rest Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Asuaje will hit the bench in favor of platoon mate Jose Pirela with a southpaw (Jon Lester) on the mound for the Cubs. With a 12-for-34 (.353 average) showing at the plate since returning from Triple-A El Paso on July 1, Asuaje looks in little danger of falling behind Pirela on the depth chart.

July 15, 2018 09:20 AM
Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Reaches base four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje went 2-for-2 with a pair of walks, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

Asuaje has wrestled the Padres' starting second base job (against righties) from Jose Pirela, slashing .353/.476/.441 in 42 plate appearances since being recalled from the minors at the beginning of July. The 26-year-old doesn't provide much in the power department -- just one extra-base hit over that span -- but he can help deep-league owners in terms of batting average and run production while batting second in the order.

July 9, 2018 10:00 PM
Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Not in Monday's starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje is out of Monday's lineup against the Dodgers.

He will take a seat with lefty Clayton Kershaw on the hill for the Dodgers. Righty-hitting Jose Pirela will start at second base and hit sixth.

July 8, 2018 02:52 PM
Padres' Carlos Asuaje: Makes third start in four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asuaje will start at second base and bat second in the order Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Asuaje began his recent callup with a four-game hit streak, and though he's hitless in his last two, Sunday will mark his third start in the last four games for the Padres. He seems to have more than a slight chance of eventually passing Jose Pirela on the depth chart, as Pirela owns a .619 OPS since June 1. Asuaje also typically hits second in the order when he starts, which could allow for plenty of run-scoring opportunities in front of the likes of Eric Hosmer and Wil Myers.
