Latest Update Asche will possibly try playing first base and left field during spring training Wed Dec, 10, 10:49 PM
Can hit for a good average, play sound defense at the hot corner and produce quality power numbers as well. Is also an above-average runner for a third baseman.
Flaws: : Strikes out a little bit too much for his level of power, so he will need to cut down at the big-league level. Must also prove he can hit left-handed pitching regularly.
Asche hit .252 with 43 runs, 10 home runs and 46 RBI over 121 games last season for the Phillies as their primary third basemen. Having Asche try multiple positions is likely due to some of the prospects the Phillies have coming up through their system particularly third basemen Maikel Franco who was the 17th best prospect according to Baseball America going into last season.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba

It was a nice game for Asche and he's now on a four-game hit streak, but this was his first RBI in nine games and just his third for the month of September. He's going to have to impress with his glove to stick around next year because his bat really isn't doing it for anyone.Analyst: Howard Bender
Ashe can swing the occasional devastating bat, but such performances have been few and far between this season.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
