Then Joey Lucchesi...

Carlos Asuaje was optioned to El Paso; Good thing he hadn't left yet

On paper, Carlos Asuaje was sent to Triple-A El Paso on Monday. The logistics of such moves made it rather convenient recall him when injury forced Joey Lucchesi to the disabled list.

San Diego Padres: Asuaje Optioned, Lineups/Pitchers vs. Rockies

The San Diego Padres made a few moves ahead of their two-game series with the Colorado Rockies beginning tonight at Petco Park. The San Diego Padres made the previously reported (James E.

Padres option Carlos Asuaje to get look at Franmil Reyes

The Padres need to determine which of their many outfielders will be a part of future seasons. Now – with two outfielders on the disabled list – is as good a time as any to do so. That also made it the perfect time for Franmil Reyes to get scorching hot at Triple-A. And it made it the wrong time...

Padres notes: Cory Spangenberg, others to get looks; Carlos Asuaje knows how bad he's been

Headley was designated for assignment on Saturday, and Spangenberg was recalled from Triple-A El Paso. The 27-year-old...

Padres continue on record-breaking strikeout pace in loss to Rockies

Carlos Asuaje respects, doesn't accept role on Padres

Carlos Asuaje might not be the future at second base for the Padres, but he played himself into being the present. And that’s worth recognizing — perhaps even celebrating — for what it is.
