Phillies send 3B Cody Asche to minors to work in outfield
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/15) The Phillies assigned infielder Cody Asche to the minor leagues so he can receive work in left field, the team announced.
"Going forward as an organization it's better for me to play left field so I've got to go do that," he said, per The News Journal.
Asche has been spending time before games taking fly balls in the outfield. He is hitting .235 in 102 at-bats this season.
The Phillies are expected to call up third baseman Maikel Franco to replace Asche on the roster, reports CSNPhilly.com. Franco is hitting .341 with four home runs in the minors.
Phillies' Utley, Asche, Howard return to lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Phillies infielders Chase Utley, Cody Asche and Ryan Howard are back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets.
The Phillies gave all three a break from starting with a lefty on the mound Saturday, but all have returned to their regular roles.
The Phillies are home underdogs (+130) against the Mets Sunday.
Phillies may shift Cody Asche to outfield
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Phillies third baseman Cody Asche was out of the lineup again on Saturday against the Mets, but may be preparing for a shift to the outfield, according to MLB.com.
Asche is shagging fly balls in the outfield and working on outfield drills during pregame warmups with the club.
"He's looked fine," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "He seems to have the moves and the foot speed for it. He seems to be doing all right if that would ever be the case."
But Sandberg wouldn't say for sure whether Asche will move to the outfield. Asche has played exclusively at third base in his major league career and is hitting .237 with two home runs in 97 at-bats this season.
Chase Utley, Cody Asche out of Phillies' lineup

|(5/9/15) Two infield regulars are out of the Phillies' lineup for Saturday's game.
Slumping second baseman Chase Utley will sit out for the third time in the last four games. Cesar Hernandez takes his place.
Third baseman Cody Asche also goes to the bench, replaced by Andres Blanco.
Phillies' Asche working in LF a precursor to Franco promotion?
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Phillies third baseman Cody Asche was chasing down fly balls in left field during batting practice prior to Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.
“I wanted him to do it,” manager Ryne Sandberg told CSNPhilly.com. “It could be helpful down the road adding versatility.”
Asche was introduced to playing in the outfield in February before he stopped workouts to focus on getting ready to be the team's starting third baseman. However, now that his workouts in the outfield has resumed, it could be to clear a path for Philadelphia to promote third-base prospect Maikel Franco, who is off to a good start with Triple-A Lehigh Valley (.333/.371/.512/.883).
“We’re covering all bases, preparing for situations that could arise,” he said.
|2014 summary: Cody Asche didn't make a huge impression in his late 2013 debut, and he showed little improvement in his first full season as the Phillies' third baseman. With 10 home runs and 25 doubles over 121 games, Asche offered only moderate power, and his .252 batting average was a far cry from the .290 mark he posted in his minor league career. Asche finished outside the top 30 third basemen in Fantasy value, though missing more than a month with a hamstring injury played a role in his low ranking.|
Playing time status: Whether in spring training or later in the season, Asche will probably have to battle Maikel Franco for playing time at third base, but he could maintain steady at-bats by playing either first base or left field.
2015 outlook: Even if Asche hits his ceiling, he won't be all that useful in standard mixed leagues, but a higher batting average and a little more power would make him a compelling option in deeper mixed leagues. Asche is worth a late-round flier in those formats, but nothing more than that.
