The San Diego Padres announced today that infielder Carlos Asuaje, one of four former Red Sox prospects sent to San Diego in exchange for Craig Kimbrel, has been designated for assignment.

Asuaje, along with outfielder Manuel Margot, shortstop Javy Guerra and pitcher Logan Allen, was sent to the Padres in the November 2015 deal that swung the All-Star closer to Boston.

Asuaje was ranked by Baseball America as the No. 25 prospect in the Red Sox system in 2015. In 79 games for the Padres in 2018, the Venezuela native hit .240/.312/.329 with two home runs and 19 RBI.
