Nady, who’s expected to head directly to Triple-A Tacoma, elected free agency after being outrighted off the Padres’ 40-man roster the first week of May. He was batting just .135 with a .238 on-base percentage in 42 plate appearances for San Diego and hasn’t been a productive major leaguer since 2008.
Nady, a career .268/.323/.432 hitter in the big leagues, turned 35 years old this offseason.
