A secondary piece in the 2015 Craig Kimbrel trade, Asuaje has looked the part of a career backup in 96 career games with the Padres. He displayed good plate patience for his age last season, walking at an 8.2 percent clip with the big club and posting a 14.4 percent mark at Triple-A. He also hit line drives at a 23.9 percent clip, and if he continues to do that, Asuaje should be able to sustain a relatively high BABIP and acceptable batting average. Unfortunately, Asuaje packs little power (28.7 percent hard-hit rate) and his speed is modest. Without either of those two tools, Asuaje will struggle to find mixed-league relevance at any point. Making matters worse, Asuaje is limited defensively -- he's made fewer than a dozen appearances at other positions besides second base over the past two years. He figures to open 2018 behind Cory Spangenberg at the keystone.
