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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cody Asche turned in his best game of the season on Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with two doubles and his second home run of the year.

After missing the first two months with an oblique strain, Asche really struggled in his first 35 at-bats prior to today. The three extra-base hits raised his OPS from .596 all the way up to .813 on the season.

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

Asche missed the first nine weeks of the 2016 regular season with a Grade 1 strain of his right oblique. He just finished up a full 20-day minor league rehab assignment, slashing .169/.222/.407 with four home runs and eight RBI in 15 games. The former third baseman has a decent power stroke, but he's probably not worth a pickup in standard mixed fantasy leagues.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
