Starting third base job up for grabs in Philadelphia


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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
(2/9/2014) 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."

"He's proven defensively he can play third base," Sandberg said. "And I think his bat has played. He's shown a good steady bat. I think down the stretch it's turned into a little bit of a long season for him possibly. I understand that. But the work ethic and the quality swing for a young guy like that is pretty good."

Asche has hit .248/.319/.416 with five home runs and 22 RBI in 149 at-bats. He has served as the team's starting third baseman in 32 of the team's 45 games since his promotion in late July.

Cody Asche could move around the field


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2013) Phillies infielder Cody Asche was in the starting lineup Wednesday at third base, but the Phillies are expected to move him around the field to keep him in the lineup. According to MLB.com, manager Charlie Manuel said the team is considering putting him in right field at times to test his versatility.

"I don't know if we will, but we will talk about it," Manuel said.

Asche has only played third and second base in his professional career, but the team's organizational depth at third base could force him to move if he wants to stick in the majors. General manager Ruben Amaro thinks Asche is up to the task, even if they aren't going to force the issue right now.

"We haven't really talked about it extensively," Amaro said. "He's athletic enough to do that, but he's our third baseman today and that's where we'll keep him for now."


Cody Asche not a huge find in Fantasy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/30/2013) The Phillies promoted third baseman Cody Asche to the big leagues Tuesday, presumably to take over for Michael Young, who some have speculated will go to the bench even if he's not traded. Anytime a new starter emerges, Fantasy owners should take notice, particular when it's a prospect. In Asche's case, though, I use the term pretty loosely.

His numbers at Triple-A Lehigh Valley -- specifically, the .295 batting average and 15 home runs -- are decent enough. But his .837 OPS is nothing special at that level, and his 95 strikeouts to 35 walks are downright discouraging. If he had a Christian Yelich-like pedigree, I could overlook the numbers. Talent is talent, and as Wil Myers is showing, it counts for more than Triple-A numbers. But unless you count the Phillies-specific ones, Asche wasn't appearing on any top prospect lists that spring.

Granted, I'm probably being a little overly critical of him just because, with any midseason call-up, the hype has the potential to get out of control. I've actually had Asche stashed in an NL-only league in anticipation of this move, so I think he can be useful. But nothing more than that. Personally, I'm expecting Trevor Plouffe-like production from him as a rookie.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2013) Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said third baseman Cody Asche, who was promoted to the majors Tuesday, will be in the lineup Wednesday against the Giants.
