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.
