Yankees acquired INF/OF Cody Asche from the Royals for a player to be named later or cash considerations; assigned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Asche signed a minor league contract with Kansas City over the winter but did not make the team's Opening Day roster. The 27-year-old owns a .234/.293/.376 career batting line in 1,349 plate appearances at the major league level. He'll function as minor league depth for New York.
Apr 4 - 12:08 PM

Royals signed third baseman-outfielder Cody Asche to a minor league contract.

Asche hit just .105/.177/.175 in 57 at-bats after making the White Sox out of spring training last year, and he never returned to the majors after being sent down in mid-May. He'll be a fallback option for the Royals.

Cody Asche has elected free agency.

The 27-year-old didn't see much big league action in 2017, hitting just .105/.177/.175 in 57 at-bats. With his ability to play third base as well as the corner outfield, he could attract some suitors on the free agent market.

White Sox optioned INF Cody Asche to Triple-A Charlotte.

The 26-year-old has been abysmal at the plate this season, slashing .105/.177/.175 with one homer, four RBI and a 21/3 K/BB ratio in 57 at-bats. He'll continue to provide depth in the minor leagues.

Cody Asche went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Friday’s loss to the Indians.

Asche’s brutal start continues. He’s now just 2-for-32 (.063) with zero extra-base hits, one RBI, and a 12/2 K/BB ratio through 10 games. The 26-year-old has been sharing at-bats out of the DH spot in the early going, but those opportunities could dry up in a hurry unless he starts to turn things around.

Cody Asche is absent from the White Sox' lineup Thursday.

Matt Davidson is starting in the designated hitter spot with the Tigers throwing Matt Boyd, and it figures to continue being a strict platoon with those two. The White Sox also have Geovany Soto catching Thursday.

White Sox purchased the contract of 3B/OF Cody Asche from Triple-A Charlotte.

Asche is set to serve as the primary designated hitter against righties early on. He's a career .240/.298/.385 hitter over parts of four seasons in the majors but is worth a look in AL-only formats.
Sun, Apr 2, 2017 01:37:00 PM

White Sox signed 3B/OF Cody Asche to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Asche, 26, is a career .240/.298/.385 hitter over parts of four seasons in the majors. He should stand a decent shot at an Opening Day roster spot in Chicago as a backup at third base and the corner outfield spots.

Phillies non-tendered INF/OF Cody Asche.

Asche was designated for assignment earlier in the day on Friday, and unable to find a trade partner the Phillies cut bait with the utility man. The 26-year-old hit a disappointing .213/.284/.350 with four homers and 18 RBI in 218 plate appearances in 2016. There's enough talent here that another team may be willing to take a shot on him as a free agent.

Phillies designated INF/OF Cody Asche for assignment.

Asche has shown flashes for the Phils but is a .240/.298/.385 hitter over parts of four seasons in the majors. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver claim David Rollins.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 03:10:00 PM

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

The 26-year-old has struggled mightily during his time with the Phillies this season, slashing .213/.281/.362 with four homers and 17 RBI in 192 plate appearances. He'll provide an extra bat off the bench over the season's final three weeks.
Sat, Sep 10, 2016 11:59:00 AM

Phillies optioned OF Cody Asche to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Asche has hit only .213/.281/.362 with the big club this season. He's clearing room for the return of Peter Bourjos (shoulder) from the disabled list.
Fri, Aug 12, 2016 03:09:00 PM

Cody Asche went hitless in Tuesday's defeat and is hitting just .125 in 64 at-bats this month.

Asche got off to a hot start after coming off the disabled list last month, but he's done absolutely nothing lately. He's now possibly in position to lose his starting job to Aaron Altherr in a week or two, though that will also depend on what happens with Peter Bourjos.
Tue, Jul 26, 2016 10:35:00 PM

Cody Asche had three hits and three RBI as the Phillies edged the Diamondbacks 9-8 on Wednesday.

The last of those hits was a single to help fuel the rally in the 10th. Asche is hitting .289 with an .815 OPS since coming off the disabled list on June 2, helping to stabilize the Phillies outfield. He'll continue to play left against righties.
