Jorge Ona

Good news from the Don Welke Classic ...

Kemp mentioned that Jorge Oña will be ready to go for spring training. The 22-year-old didn’t play after May 3 due to a shoulder injury that ultimately required surgery. In 25 games before the injury, Oña was hitting .348/.417/.539, with five homers in 100 at-bats. He will be eligible for the Rule 5 draft if he is not added to the 40-man roster.

“We are expecting a big year out of Jorge,” said Kemp. “Everybody was buzzing about Oña. We had to take care of some things with the shoulder, but he will be ready in camp.”

The Padres have designated outfielder Nick Martini for assignment, AJ Cassavell of tweets. The club selected the contract of outfielder Jorge Ona from Double-A Amarillo in a corresponding move.
