Cody Asche went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs, helping the Phillies beat the Marlins on Tuesday.

Asche padded the Phillies' lead to 4-0 with his first home run in the fourth inning off of Tom Koehler. He made it a 6-2 game in the eighth with a homer off of Raudel Lazo. It's the first multi-homer game of his career. Despite the performance, Asche's numbers remain mediocre, as he's hitting .249/.298/.400 with 11 home runs and 33 RBI in 390 plate appearances.
Sep 22 - 10:42 PM

Cody Asche had the Phillies' only hit in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Nationals.

Asche singled to right field to lead off the fifth inning, ending what appeared at the time to be a no-hit bid for Stephen Strasburg. The third baseman would finish 1-for-3 on the night, and the Phillies wouldn't muster another hit. Asche came into the evening with home runs in two of his previous three games, but he still holds a lackluster .246/.296/.386 batting line with nine home runs and 31 RBI.
Sep 15 - 9:49 PM

Cody Asche socked a walk-off, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to end Saturday's 7-5 win over the Cubs.

Asche came on to pinch-hit with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. He made sure the game didn't stretch to extras, swatting a two-run walk-off homer against Hector Rondon to send the fans home happy. Asche's overall numbers aren't as stellar as that one hit, though, as he sports a limp .247/.294/.383 triple-slash with eight homers and 28 RBI this season.
Sep 12 - 11:41 PM

Cody Asche went 1-for-3 with an RBI double as the Phillies fell to the Cubs in the second game of Friday's doubleheader.

His run-scoring double in the fifth inning pulled the Phillies to within 6-2, but it wouldn't be close to enough to salvage one game of Friday's twin bill. Asche has had a disappointing season at the dish, slashing .245/.293/.373 with seven homers and 26 RBI.
Sep 11 - 11:33 PM

Cody Asche went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Brewers.

Asche scored on an RBI single by Chase Utley in the ninth inning, but the Phillies would do no further damage, falling by a final of 3-1. The double was his ninth of the season. He's now working on a little seven-game hitting streak while hitting .258/.296/.390 with six homers and 21 RBI.
Aug 15 - 1:14 AM

Cody Asche went 2-for-3 with a two-run double and a run scored, helping the Phillies defeat the Blue Jays 3-2 on Tuesday.

Asche tied the game at two apiece in the fifth inning when he hit a two-run double to right-center against Felix Doubront. He'd later score the go-ahead and eventual game-winning run on Andres Blanco's double. The third baseman is on a five-game hitting streak, but has been well below average for a corner outfielder this season, batting .251/.284/.373 with five home runs and 19 RBI.
Jul 28 - 10:06 PM

Cody Asche belted his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Brewers on Thursday.

Now serving as the Phillies' primary left fielder, Asche had himself quite a night at the dish, going 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and two RBI, and he also drew a walk. For the season, he's slashing .254/.289/.362 with four long balls and 11 RBI.
Jul 2 - 10:46 PM

Phillies recalled 3B/OF Cody Asche from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Asche batted .295/.358/.393 with one homer over 15 games for Lehigh Valley while making the conversion from third base to left field. The Phillies will make a corresponding move prior to Friday's game.
May 29 - 11:37 AM

Phillies optioned 3B Cody Asche to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

He'll make the transition to left field while he's there. The Phillies will go with Cesar Hernandez and Andres Blanco at third base for now, but Maikel Franco is expected to take over at the position this weekend. Asche got off to a great start this season, but he's really cooled off of late with just four hits over 33 at-bats this month.
May 11 - 10:34 PM

Cody Asche shagged fly balls in left field during batting practice prior to Tuesday's game.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg didn't deny that it could be related to an eventual promotion of Maikel Franco to take over at third base. "We’re covering all bases, preparing for situations that could arise," the skipper said. Asche, who also worked out some in left field during spring training, is hitting .303/.352/.424 with a couple homers this season. Franco is batting .333/.371/.512 with one homer at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Cody Asche provided the Phillies their only run with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Marlins on Wednesday.

Asche tied the game at one apiece with a second-inning blast against Jarred Cosart. He finished 1-for-3 on the night. Since jumping out to a fast start, Asche has cooled off in recent days, as he's now 4-for-23 in his last six games. His fantasy impact is rather limited as he's not even a lock to finish with double digits in home runs and doesn't do much else offensively.
Apr 22 - 10:13 PM

Cody Asche went 3-for-3 with a walk and a double as the Phillies dropped Wednesday's game to the Mets.

Asche, quietly, has started the season on a torrid pace. Following Tuesday's effort, he's hitting a cool .500 (12-for-24). That being said, 11 of those hits are singles. The pace, of course, isn't sustainable as Asche hit .252 and slugged .390 last season -- both are more indicative of his skill level.
Apr 15 - 9:55 PM

Cody Asche is back in the Phillies' lineup Monday.

Asche sat out a few games with tightness in his back. He will start at third base on Opening Day.
Mar 30 - 8:53 AM

Cody Asche has been scratched from the Phillies' lineup Thursday due to back tightness.

Asche felt the discomfort during pre-game stretching. It doesn't sound like anything to be concerned about. The 24-year-old will open the 2015 season as the Phillies' starting third baseman, though top prospect Maikel Franco is hot on his tail. Asche could eventually move to the outfield.
