As Jeff Francoeur was playing in Triple A of the San Diego Padres organization with the El Paso Chichuahaus, he was the butt of several jokes, even caught on video. Chichauhaus first baseman Cody Decker was the mastermind behind those jokes.

After a 10 game stay with the Padres, the team has designated the 30-year-old for assignment this afternoon. During his three week stay with the team, he was just 2-for-24 with seven strikeouts.

He is expected to go unclaimed after he clears through waivers. Once that happens, he will have the option of going back to Triple-A El Paso or becoming a free agent.

Francoeur was called up by the Padres on July 23rd following a .294 batting average in Triple-A. Besides the two hits, he an an RBI and two runs with an .083 batting average over 10 games.

In El Paso, he also had 15 home runs and 60 RBI’s in 98 games.
