Fantasy Impact:

Asuaje has not played well this season and blew his opportunity to serve as the Padres everyday starter at second base, according to manager Andy Green. He was originally sent down on Monday with the intent of giving him opportunities to increase his versatility by learning to play third base. Now, he'll merely serve as an extra bench bat until one of the Padres' injured players makes a return to the lineup.
