Cody Asche wrapping up Phillies' third base job

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/20/15) Barring any unforseen circumstances, Cody Asche will win the Phillies' third base job. 

The Phillies sent Maikel Franco to their minor league camp on Friday, eliminating Asche's competition for the starting job.

Asche made a statement of his own later in the day, hitting a home run for the second straight game.

"I think he's one of our more solid hitters as we speak," manager Ryne Sandberg said, per MLB.com's Adam Berry.

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro: Maikel Franco's time is going to come

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/15) The Phillies optioned prospect Maikel Franco to the minors Friday after he struggled during his stint in major-league camp. Franco hit just .200 (6 for 30) with one RBI, four strikeouts and no extra-base hits.

Franco entered camp with the opportunity to push third baseman Cody Asche for a job on the major-league roster, per MLB.com.

"Maikel's time's going to come," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "I know he's upset, because I know that he probably wanted to write a different script for himself, but the fact of the matter is just like any other young player who we feel is going to impact the major leagues, his time will come when it's time for him to come.

"I think there was probably some element of him trying to do a little too much, like he did last spring. But he doesn't need to impress us. He just needs to go play."

Franco will play at first and third base for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

"When he gets a chance to be back in the big leagues, play a few games and have some success, it'll carry," Amaro said. "It's just a matter of him getting the opportunity, and he'll get the opportunity, because he's going to create it for himself."

Franco's hopes of making Phillies' roster end, sent to minors camp

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/15) The Phillies announced Friday they reassigned third baseman Maikel Franco, pitcher Nefi Ogando and pitcher Joely Rodriguez to minor-league camp.

Phillies' Sandberg: Maikel Franco 'has struggled' this spring

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/15) Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg spoke about the struggles of third-base prospect Maikel Franco before Thursday's game against the Yankees, MLB.com reports.

"I don't know if there's something about big league camp or what, but after a very good winter ball of swinging the bat, he's struggled," Sandberg said. "He's struggled this spring as far as having consistent at-bats, having a good approach and putting together good at-bats. It's been a struggle with him. He looks like he's trying to do too much. He looks like he's over-swinging. He's definitely talked about it on a daily basis, so all in all, it's been a little bit of struggle for him."

Sandberg doesn't chalk up the prospect's struggles to being tired.

"He doesn't show tiredness," Sandberg said. "It's more about just cutting down the swing and looking for solid contact, making that a goal rather than some power and home runs. I just wonder if he's looking for too much too soon. Early in camp, it's more about fine-tuning your swing and having a good approach and having good, solid contact. That's more of the approach that's being talked to him about."

Franco is just 6 for 27 this spring after posting a .265 batting average and .779 OPS in 43 games during winter-league ball.

Phillies' Ryne Sandberg: Maikel Franco is overswinging

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/14/15) Phillies outfielder Maikel Franco struggled again on Saturday, going 0 for 3 and dropping his spring batting average to .182. Franco isn't giving Cody Asche the push at third base manager Ryne Sandberg was expecting, reports Philly.com.

"For him to break into the league, he needs to hit for an average and use the whole field, in my opinion," Sandberg said. "That's what has been talked about with him. He looks like he's overswinging."

Sanderberg is seeing the same issues that led to Franco's struggles last year.

"He needs to make some adjustments," Sandberg said. "I saw some of the same approaches and same swings last year in September."
