Padres sent OF Yeison Asencio outright to Triple-A El Paso.

There was a chance the 25-year-old would get claimed on waivers after batting .291/.330/.433 with 15 home runs in the minors this past season, but he stays with the Padres. Asencio will now need to be re-added to the 40-man roster before the Padres can promote him to the big league club.

Padres designated OF Yeison Asencio for assignment.

Asencio hit .291/.330/.433 with 15 homers over 138 games between Double- and Triple-A this season. He just turned 25, so it's possible he'll draw interest on waivers.
