Asencio signed with the Padres as an international free agent in 2009. He used false documents to sign, going by the name "Yoan Alcantra", to portray himself as 2 1⁄2 years younger than he actually was. The Padres added him to their 40-man roster after the 2012 season. In 2013, Asencio represented the Padres at the All-Star Futures Game. Asencio was designated for assignment on November 20, 2014.
