Cody Asche hit his ninth homer Monday in the victory over the Nationals.
The solo shot gave him his first RBI in eight days. Outside of an excellent month of May, Asche has been a well below average regular this year. Since the All-Star break, he's at .235 with three homers, three doubles and 12 RBI in 115 at-bats, which shouldn't have given the Phillies much pause about tossing him aside (or shifting him to the outfield) to make room for Maikel Franco next month.

Cody Asche went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk Friday as the Phillies topped the Giants 5-3 in 10 innings.

Asche's game-tying, two-run homer in the eighth was the first bomb allowed by Jeremy Affeldt this year. Asche also doubled to start the 10th-inning rally and came around to score when Chase Utley was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Asche had been hitting just .212/.261/.271 with one homer in 85 at-bats since the All-Star break.

Cody Asche is expected to change positions when the Phillies decide that top prospect Maikel Franco is ready for a promotion.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Matt Gelb lists left field as a possible landing spot for Asche. "He could," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said of Asche possibly moving to left. "He's athletic enough. But there is not anyone pushing him right now. Maikel isn't pushing him." Asche played second base in his first year in pro ball in 2011 but has only played third since. He's hitting just .251/.304/.402 over 66 games this season.

Cody Asche went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

Asche went back-to-back with Marlon Byrd, homering in the eighth inning to knot the game up at 4-4. It is his first since coming off of the disabled list on June 20. Overall, Asche is slashing a mediocre .253/.317/.406 with five home runs and 25 RBI on the season.

Cody Asche went 3-for-3 with a double in a game in which the Phillies were shut out by the Marlins on Monday.

Asche had half of his team's hits and the lone extra-base hit. As solid as he's been of late, the idea of moving him to left field when Maikel Franco proves ready no longer looks foolish at all.

Cody Asche went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

With the bases loaded in the second inning, Asche drove one into the left-center field gap to clear the bases. He later singled against closer Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth inning. The runs batted in were Asche's first since being activated from the disabled list on June 20. He's resumed his duties as the team's starting third baseman since activation.

Phillies activated 3B Cody Asche from the 15-day disabled list.

Cody Asche (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Lakewood on Friday.

Asche will play for Lakewood over the weekend before being moved up to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. All told, he's expected to spend 7-8 days on his rehab assignment, so the third baseman could be ready for activation next weekend.

Cody Asche (hamstring) could begin a minor league rehab assignment by the end of this week.

Jun 10 - 4:29 PM

Cody Asche (hamstring) will not be activated from the disabled list on Saturday when first eligible.

It's not clear how far along Asche is in his recovery from a left hamstring strain, but obviously he's not terribly close. The Phillies have been going with Reid Brignac at third base for the time being, but top prospect Maikel Franco could be an option soon.
Jun 4 - 9:14 AM

Phillies placed 3B Cody Asche on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 23, with a strained left hamstring.

The Phillies put Asche through a 10-minute workout prior to Sunday's game, and obviously they didn't think it went well. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Cesar Hernandez and Reid Brignac are expected to handle third base for now, but it's possible the club will consider calling up top prospect Maikel Franco.
May 25 - 12:59 PM

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Sunday that Cody Asche's has had "no improvement" with his left hamstring injury.

Asche has missed three straight games with tendinitis in his left hamstring tendon, and it's possible he'll have to be placed on the disabled list. "We have to talk about it," Sandberg said. "That’s three days. That’ll be a discussion. We do have six bench guys. As we go forward, we’ll probably add an arm out there (in the bullpen). We need to discuss that."
May 25 - 12:01 PM

Cody Asche (hamstring) remained out of the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

He's missed two straight contests with a sore left hamstring. Asche is considered day-to-day for the time being. Cesar Hernandez is getting another start at the hot corner.
