Brewers optioned RHP Alec Asher to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Asher was promoted earlier in the day and was thrust into the action immediately, tossing two scoreless innings in Friday night's loss. Because he went two innings, the Brewers then sent him out in anticipation of promoting a fresh arm before Sunday's game. The club said in a tweet it will recall Jorge Lopez to fill Asher's spot.

Brewers purchased the contract of Alec Asher from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The 26-year-old hurler owns a 2.12 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 11/4 K/BB ratio across 17 innnings at the Triple-A level this season. He'll take the spot of Jacob Barnes as a fresh arm in the Brewers' bullpen.
May 12 - 3:32 PM

Brewers designated RHP Alec Asher for assignment.

The Brewers had to clear a spot on their 40-man roster for Tyler Saladino, who was just acquired in a trade with the White Sox. Asher owns a 3.00 ERA in one start for Triple-A Colorado Springs this year. The Brewers could retain Asher and stash him in the minors if he clears waivers.
Apr 19 - 8:28 PM

Brewers claimed RHP Alec Asher off waivers from the Dodgers; optioned him to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Asher is now with his third organization in a little over a month. The 26-year-old posted a 5.25 ERA in 24 appearances (six starts) with the Orioles last season. He'll function as depth between the bullpen and rotation in Triple-A.
Apr 17 - 3:36 PM

Dodgers claimed RHP Alec Asher off waivers from the Orioles; optioned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Asher owns an underwhelming 5.55 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 76/37 K/BB ratio in 116 2/3 career major league innings. The 26-year-old right-hander will act as bullpen insurance for Los Angeles.
Apr 5 - 3:03 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Alec Asher to Triple-A Norfolk; reassigned INF Ryan Mountcastle and OF DJ Stewart to minor league camp.

Asher posted a 5.25 ERA in 24 appearances (six starts) with the big club last year. He'll continue to function as insurance for the rotation and bullpen in Triple-A.
Mar 12 - 11:38 AM

Alec Asher struck out four over two scoreless innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League tie against the Twins.

Asher came in to start the third inning and immediately fanned the first two batters he faced before a fielding error and a flyout finished the frame. He gave up a two-out single in the fourth before striking out Gregorio Petit to end the inning and his afternoon. The 26-year-old posted a 5.25 ERA in 24 appearances, including six starts, for the O's in 2017, but he's better than that number suggests. He could carve out a role with the big club this spring.
Feb 24 - 9:12 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Alec Asher to Double-A Bowie.

Sun, Aug 20, 2017 11:21:00 AM

Orioles optioned RHP Alec Asher to Triple-A Norfolk.

Asher was knocked around for five runs over 1 2/3 innings in a relief appearance Saturday. He'll be used as a starter at Norfolk.
Sun, Jul 2, 2017 11:14:00 AM

Alec Asher was roughed up by the White Sox on Tuesday, allowing six runs in five-plus innings to fall to 2-5.

The Orioles are short of rotation options, so they'll probably stick with Asher, even though he now has a 6.97 ERA in six starts. He was better in relief, amassing a 1.62 ERA in 16 2/3 innings out of the pen.
Tue, Jun 13, 2017 11:22:00 PM

Alec Asher allowed five runs on seven hits over four innings in a loss to the Nationals on Thursday.

Asher's command also left him, as he walked four on top of the seven hits allowed. The poor outing followed a good one against the Red Sox his last time out, and he's now gotten hit in two of his last three starts. It adds up to a 4.35 ERA and 1.26 WHIP through 41 1/3 innings of work this year. His position in the rotation is tenuous, so it's unclear whether Thursday's turn has affected his standing going forward.
Thu, Jun 8, 2017 10:17:00 PM

Alec Asher pitched well in Friday's win over the Red Sox, allowing two runs on three hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Asher struck out five and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. It was a terrific bounce-back effort for the right-hander after he was shelled by the Astros on Sunday. He'll carry a 3.62 ERA and 1.10 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Nationals in Washington.
