Rangers right-handed pitching prospect Alec Asher struck out four batters, scattering two hits in seven shutout innings for Double-A Frisco on Friday.
Asher has been dominant over his last three starts, holding opposing batters to a .190/.235/.270 line. His best case scenario is a solid #4 starter with good command, but he could see time with the Rangers before the end of the season if there is a need. Sat, Jun 7, 2014 11:50:00 AM

Rangers right-handed pitching prospect Alec Asher bounced had his best outing of the season on Saturday, tossing seven shutout innings for Double-A Frisco while striking out seven batters and allowing only four hits.

Asher has struggled as of late, so it's good to see a dominant outing. His ERA dropped from 5.61 to 4.41. The Rangers pitching staff is suddenly thin, so if he continues to pitch well he could see some time in Arlington before the end of the 2014 season.

Rangers right-handed pitching prospect Alec Asher got shelled on Monday, allowing seven runs (all earned) over five innings for Double-A Frisco.

Asher allowed seven hits, which included a double, a triple, and a home run, as well as two walks, while striking out five. His ERA ballooned from 3.92 to 5.61 as a result of the poor outing. Asher has the potential to be a solid #3 pitcher, but his most likely outcome is a back-end innings-eater.
