|Starting third base job up for grabs in Philadelphia |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/19/14) Ryne Sandberg is throwing third base up for competition between Phillies prospects Cody Asche and Maikel Franco, the Philadelphia Daily News has reported.
Asche is the only one with major league experience. He batted .233 with five home runs and 22 RBI in 162 at-bats at the end of last season. He remains the favorite to land the starting job.
The 21-year-old Franco has not played above Double-A, but he was highly productive at Reading in 2013, batting .339 with 15 home runs and 51 RBI in just 277 at-bats. He blasted 36 home runs in Class A and AA combined.
|Phillies GM hoping for 'great competition' at 3B this spring |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/9/14) Cody Asche is considered the lead candidate to win the third-base job this spring for the Phillies after playing well enough following his promotion to the majors last season.
However, Asche knows the pressure will be on to perform with top prospect Maikel Franco in camp looking to earn his way into the starting lineup.
"I don’t look at it as it’s my job to lose," Asche said, per CSNPhilly.com. "I look at it as it’s a spot I need to get. I put it on myself to make the decision easy for them."
One person who is looking forward to the competiton is Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.
"I frankly hope there is a great competition in spring training between Maikel and Cody," Amaro Jr. said. "That can create a heck of a situation for us. They’re both very, very good young players."
|Cody Asche needed less than three full seasons in the minors before making his MLB debut last summer for the Phillies. The 2011 fourth-round pick would take over as the starting third baseman in late July once the team's playoff hopes dimmed. Unfortunately, Asche didn't make much of an impact offensively, batting .235 with a .389 slugging percentage and .691 OPS in 50 games. However, manager Ryne Sandberg liked how Asche performed defensively, which is why he is considered the front-runner to start at third base to begin 2014. Though, Asche needs to improve offensively with top prospect Maikel Franco breathing down his neck. Asche was a good contact hitter in the minors with moderate home run power. Though, he had a .513 slugging percentage at Double-A and a .485 slugging percentage at Triple-A, so there could be developing power for the 23-year-old infielder. Still, Asche is more of a Fantasy option for deep leagues.
