Sandberg: Asche is Phillies' new starting LF, Revere moving to RF
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/29/15) Cody Asche is the Phillies' new starting left fielder, manager Ryne Sandberg said Friday. Sandberg also said Ben Revere will move to right field and get "spot starts" in center field, per the Philadelphia Daily News.
Asche was recalled from the minors Friday after playing 15 games in left field for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. To clear a roster spot, outfielder Grady Sizemore was designated for assignment.
Sizemore saw most of his playing time in right field, but this news also impacts Jeff Francoeur, who has started a team-high 25 games in right field.

|(5/16/15) Phillies outfielder Jeff Francoeur launched his third home run of the season in Saturday's victory over the Diamondbacks. His second-inning soloo shot gave his team an early 1-0 lead. It was his only hit of the game, and he now sports a .218 batting average on the season. Francoeur had gone 24 games without a home run prior to Saturday.

|(5/9/15) Ryan Howard is not in the Phillies' lineup for Saturday's game. The first baseman will be rested for the fifth time this year.
Replacing him at first is Darin Ruf, who started the last three games in left field. Ben Revere, who had been starting in right for the last three, switches back to left, where he started 19 games. Jeff Francoeur returns to right.
Phillies' Jeff Francoeur gets four hits in win over the Braves
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/4/15) Phillies outfielder Jeff Francoeur did some damage against the team with which he began his career.
In Monday night's 5-2 win over the Braves, Francoeur went 4 for 5 with two RBI. One of those hits was a ninth-inning triple that scored Darin Ruf. Francoeur also had an RBI double in the first that scored Ben Revere.
Francoeur, who was drafted by the Braves in 2002 and made his major-league debut with Atlanta in 2005, entered the game on an 0-for-19 skid, which included going hitless in 13 at-bats in his team's series against the Cardinals.
"In so many words, I'd like to say I was mentally [messed up] on Thursday," Francoeur said about the Cardinals series, per MLB.com. "I was scuffling. To get some time off this weekend was a big deal for me, man. Anybody that knows me knows that I grind hard, I play hard. I put a lot of pressure on myself. To get that time to really rest and relax, I felt really comfortable coming into today."
Francoeur is now hitting a slash line of .214/.267/.386.

Grady Sizemore was once again inserted into the lineup in right field, and batted fifth for manager Ryne Sandberg.
