Philadelphia Phillies Roster

Cody Asche: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Manager Ryne Sandberg is happy with what he sees from Asche at the plate this spring, the Phillies' official site reports. "He has a real good two-strike approach," Sandberg said. "He's putting balls in play, and he has a short, nice, sweet stroke resulting in some balls hit hard and home runs here in the camp. I think he took to heart our suggestions over the offseason, and he's showing results through the camp."

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Asche received his first taste of the majors last season after hitting .295 with 15 home runs at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He got off to a solid start with the Phillies, but a poor September dropped his season-ending batting average to .235. However, he did hit five home runs over his 179 at-bats with the Phillies. If he can maintain that pace for a full season, he could finish with around 15 homers at the big league level. He is also likely to hit for a better average than he did in his brief stint with the Phillies last season. Asche does not project as a star player, but he does have the skills to be a solid contributor. In deeper leagues, that kind of player has value. The biggest concern for Asche is that he may simply be keeping third base warm for top prospect Maikel Franco. The two will compete for the starting job this spring, but early expectations are that the Phillies will give Franco additional time in the minors before turning third base over to him down the line.

2013

Asche wasn't on any prospect lists at the start of last season, but a strong season between Single-A and Double-A last year has put him on the radar. He hit .324/.369/.481 with 12 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 518 at-bats between his two stops in the minors, with 10 of his home runs coming after the promotion to Double-A. The Phils believe Asche can be at least an average major league third baseman. He will likely open the year in Triple-A and could put himself into consideration for a promotion this season if he keeps hitting.
