Cody Asche (oblique) went 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI on Tuesday night at Double-A Reading.
Asche had been held hitless since moving his minor league rehab assignment from High-A Clearwater to Reading on Sunday. The third baseman turned corner outfielder has been on the disabled list this entire season because of a Grade 1 strain of his right oblique. He should be cleared to rejoin the Phillies on June 1, when his 20-day rehab window will officially close, but there's no reason to have him rostered in a standard mixed fantasy league.

Cody Asche (oblique) is expected to begin playing in games at extended spring training this week.

Asche has been taking batting practice without issue over the last several days at the Phillies' spring training complex in Clearwater, Florida. The third baseman turned corner outfielder was placed on the disabled list at the end of spring training because of a Grade 1 right oblique strain. He should be ready for activation sometime next week if he is able to avoid setbacks.
May 10 - 7:49 PM

Cody Asche (oblique) is expected to resume baseball activities soon.

He'll visit team doctors in Philadelphia on Wednesday for a checkup. Asche suffered a Grade 1 strain of his right oblique in late February and then had an untimely setback at the end of spring training. He probably won't be an option for the Phillies until early May.
Apr 12 - 5:23 PM

Phillies placed OF Cody Asche on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique.

He recently encountered a setback and won't be back for at least a few weeks. Asche won't be much of a fantasy asset when he returns. He's just a .246 career hitter.
Apr 2 - 4:51 PM

Cody Asche had a setback over the weekend with his oblique injury.

Asche suffered a Grade 1 strain of his right oblique in early March and aggravated it while ramping things up again. The Phillies believe he's a few weeks away.
Mar 29 - 8:47 AM

Cody Asche (oblique) will open the 2016 regular season on the 15-day disabled list.

Asche suffered a Grade 1 strain of his right oblique in early March and is just now getting back into the swing of things. He is not a fantasy-relevant player.
Mar 28 - 3:48 PM

Cody Asche (oblique) took batting practice on Tuesday.

Asche suffered a Grade 1 strain of his right oblique earlier this month and is just beginning to ramp up activities again. His status for the start of the season remains in doubt.
Mar 22 - 10:56 AM

Cody Asche (oblique) played four innings in left field in a minor league game Thursday.

Asche is able to play defense with no issues but hasn't been cleared to take regular batting practice yet. He could be ready to do that soon but is still likely to begin the season on the disabled list.
Mar 17 - 6:24 PM

An MRI taken Wednesday on Cody Asche's sore right oblique revealed a Grade 1 strain.

Asche will be backed away from hitting drills for at least another week and is probably headed for a season-opening 15-day disabled list stint. He has been bothered by the injury since late February. There's a big opening in the Phillies' outfield in the wake of Aaron Altherr's wrist surgery, but it's probably going to be Rule 5 Draft pick Tyler Goeddel who gets to take advantage.
Mar 10 - 8:59 AM

Cody Asche (oblique) could resume some outfield drills on Wednesday.

Asche has been sidelined for nearly a week with a sore oblique and isn't ready to swing a bat yet. "He needs to get in there and start swinging the bat," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. "He's kind of down in the dumps right now because he can't get on the field."
Mar 1 - 6:59 PM

Cody Asche was limited Thursday in Phillies camp after tweaking his oblique on a hit-by-pitch.

Asche will probably remain limited through the weekend, but this doesn't sound like anything to be all that concerned about. The 25-year-old is expected to get reps at first base, third base, and both corner outfield spots this spring in the Grapefruit League. If all goes well, he will operate as a utilityman and bench bat for the Phillies in 2016.
Feb 25 - 12:35 PM

Cody Asche is getting reps at first base in spring training.

Asche has lost his starting jobs at third base and in left field over the last year, so adding versatility for a potential future as a utility player seems wise. The 25-year-old has never played first base before, but it shouldn't be all that difficult to pick up since third base is his natural position. Asche has some experience at second base from back in 2011, but the Phillies have no plans to work him out there.
Feb 21 - 3:57 PM

Cody Asche was 2-for-4 with a two-run homer against the Nationals on Friday.

Asche's recent power surge continues. The 25-year-old now has five home runs in 36 plate appearances over his last 11 games. He had just seven home runs in 393 plate appearances over his previous 110 games this season.

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.
Tue, Sep 22, 2015 10:42:00 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.
