Padres Designate Jorge Cantu For Assignment

The Padres have designated infielder Jorge Cantu for assignment, reports Ted Mendenhall II of ESPN Radio 1700 San Diego (Twitter link).  As Mendenhall notes, the move opens a spot on San Diego's 40-man roster.

Cantu signed an $850K contract with San Diego in January and he hit just .194/.232/285 in 155 plate appearances for the Friars, making 37 starts (26 at first, 10 at third and one at second).  His versatility may entice another team to give him a look but his numbers have tailed off considerably since his .289/.345/.443 performance with Florida in 2009.
