Padres Designate Cory Burns For Assignment

The Padres have designated right-hander Cory Burns for assignment, according to a club press release.  In corresponding moves, the Friars purchased the contracts of outfielder Yeison Asencio, outfielder Jaff Decker and right-hander Adys Portillo.

Originally an eighth-round pick of the Indians in the 2009 amateur draft, Burns joined the Padres last December in the trade that sent Aaron Cunningham Cleveland.  Burns made his Major League debut in 2012, posting a 5.50 ERA and 18 strikeouts in 18 relief innings for San Diego.  Burns has been impressive in the minors, with a career 2.36 ERA, 5.12 K/BB ratio and an 11.2 K/9 rate in 184 minor league games, all out of the bullpen.
