Padres Designate Nick Martini
The Padres have assigned outfielder Nick Martini for task, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com tweets. The club chosen the agreement of outfielder Jorge Ona from Double-An Amarillo in a comparing move.
Martini joined the Padres off waivers from the Athletics toward the finish of August, however the 29- year-old at that point battled over 96 plate appearances, hitting .244/.344/.317 with no grand slams. He logged just 13 PA with the A’s this past season before they proceeded onward from him, however Martini was a decent individual from their offense in 2018. The lefty cut .296/.397/.414 crosswise over 179 excursions to the plate, yet he just hit one HR at that point.
Ona, presently 22, went to the Pads as an advertised possibility out of Cuba in July 2016. The club marked Ona for $7MM, and he’s presently falling off a short season in which he featured in his first taste of the Double-A level. Ona piled on 103 plate appearances and batted .348/.417/.539 with five homers.
