Carlos Asuaje was DFA’d by the San Diego Padres on Friday as the club announced the signing of Garrett Richards to a two-year deal.

The infielder homered in the D.R. and is in very good spirits despite the news today. We communicated briefly today, as I wished Carlos good luck in the future. He assures me that he loves the game and will keep his grind alive. More power to him.

There were others in action on the day.

Here is a recap of the day’s action:

Australian Baseball League

Justin Lopez– (1-4) Run

The young infielder is batting .233 on the year in Australia. He was in the leadoff spot on Friday and played shortstop for the Cavalry.

Kelvin Melean– (1-4) RBI, K

Lopez’ teammate in the ABL is Melean, who is hitting .182 on the year. He played second base on Friday.

Michael Gettys– (1-5) HR, 3 RBI, Run, K

Gettys now has five homers on the year after blasting a three-run homer on Friday. He is hitting .314 on the year for the Bite.

Jarryd Dale– (0-3) K

Dale is in a horrible slump. He is at .094 for the season and has gone 0-for-24 in the last 10 games for Melbourne.

Venezuelan baseball league

All games postponed due to weather

Dominican baseball league

Franchy Cordero– (0-4) BB, 2 K

Cordero is slumping a bit in the D.R. He is down to .278 on the year for the Leones.

Carlos Asuaje– (2-3) HR, RBI, Run, 2 BB

Asuaje homered on the day he was DFA’d by the Friars. He is hitting .333 and this will be his last appearance on this daily report. Good luck, Carlos.

Fernando Tatis Jr.– (1-3) 2B, Run, K

The #1 prospect for the team is hitting .277 on the year as he continues to develop. He is certainly one of the best players in the D.R. right now.

Francisco Mejia– (0-2) 2 K

Mejia has been out of the lineup for a few games. No word on an injury. He came in as a pinch hitter in the DH role and struck out twice on the day. He is hitting .232 on the year for the Estrellas.

Is it possible that Mejia isn’t playing because of an imminent trade? No injury has been reported.
