Padres Designate Jeudy Valdez For Assignment

The Padres have designated infielder Jeudy Valdez for assignment, according to Corey Brock of MLB.com (on Twitter).  The move will allow the club to make room for Fautino De Los Santos, who was claimed off of waivers earlier today.

Valdez, 23, was promoted last season to Double-A San Antonio where he hit .225/.273/.364 in 507 plate appearances.  The youngster has seen a good deal of time at second base in the Padres' farm system but has spent the last two years at shortstop.
