Cody Asche belted a two-run walkoff home run on Friday, powering the Phillies to a 3-1 victory over the Marlins in 10 innings.
Ben Revere singled with one out in the 10th inning before Asche blasted a Chris Hatcher offering over the wall in right field for the game-winner. He also doubled, finishing the night 2-for-5. He's now hitting .254/.312/.398 with 10 long balls and 45 RBI in 109 games. Sep 12 - 11:44 PM

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Saturday that Cody Asche will not change positions this season.

It was reported in July that Asche would be moved off third base once the Phils decided Maikel Franco was ready to be promoted. Franco is likely to be called up this week, but it appears any transition to another position for Asche won't occur until over the winter. "Right now, he's the third baseman," Sandberg said. "He's doing a good job there. He's come a long way. That's kind of where everything stands as we speak. Typically, a position change is more for instructional league and winter time." The two players could share third base in September.

Cody Asche went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in Friday's loss to the Mets.

Asche drove in the only run of the game for Philadelphia. The 24-year-old is only batting .245/.302/.379 with nine homers and 42 RBI over 100 games this season. If the Phillies decide to call up Maikel Franco in September, it will be interesting to see if Asche gets a look in the outfield.

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.
Aug 16 - 2:03 AM

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.
Jul 20 - 10:31 AM

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.
Jul 1 - 11:25 PM

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.
Jun 23 - 10:58 PM

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.

Asche went 5-for-6 with a home run, a double, and four RBI over a pair of rehab games with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, showing the Phillies he was ready to return. The 23-year-old has been sidelined for nearly a month with a strained left hamstring.

Jun 19 - 5:54 PM

Cody Asche (hamstring) is in line to be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.

Asche was 3-for-3 with a double at Triple-A Lehigh Valley Tuesday and will make one more start there on Wednesday before joining the Phillies in St. Louis. He's been on the shelf for nearly a month with a strained left hamstring.
Jun 17 - 10:17 PM

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.
Jun 13 - 4:22 PM

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

Asche has begun playing in simulated games at the Phillies' spring training complex in Clearwater, Florida. The third baseman has been out since May 23 with a strained left hamstring. He should be ready in about 10 days.
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.
