Phillies putting Cody Asche through outfield drills


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2015) The Phillies have begun training third baseman Cody Asche on outfield drills, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Monday.

Ache has been utilized and trained on a variety of positions while coming up through the minors, including left field, first base and second. 

Amaro thinks he has the ability and athleticism to pay a new position.

"It’s important to find out if he can do it," Amaro said. "It’s also important to create some versatility. At some point we may ask him to go out there. It might be later this year. It might not be. But it behooves us to take a peek."
