Congratulations to Carlos Asuaje for getting called up to the San Diego Padres. Despite winning the Pacific Coast League Rookie of the Year award in 2016, the infielder struggled in his second season with the Chihuahuas. Asuaje started slow and was hitting just .222 with one home run and 20 RBIs for El Paso before Monday’s promotion. He will be a lefthanded bat off the bench for the Padres and he can play either second or third base.

Asuaje did receive a late season call-up in 2016 and he hit .208 in 24 at bats for the Padres. He is the final member of the “Core Four” to be in San Diego this season. He joins Manuel Margot, Hunter Renfroe, and Austin Hedges, who all made the team out of Spring Training. Margot is hitting .264 with the Padres, while Hedges and Renfroe each have eight home runs this season. The “Core Four” were the heart and soul of the Chihuahuas’ championship season and they are a big part of San Diego’s youth movement.
