Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said the third base job is Asche's to lose next spring, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. “I would say [Asche] is going to be our third baseman,” Amaro said. “I think it’s his to have and to lose as far as where it stands right now."
GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said the Phillies do not currently have any plans to shift Asche to the outfield, the team's official site reports. "We've talked about it, but at this stage, he's a third baseman," Amaro said.
