Asche was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Friday.

Asche's stock fell after yet another disappointing season at the major league level, as his .213/.284/.350 slash line led to him being usurped of a regular role in the big leagues. The 26-year-old was expected to be non-tendered anyway, so it seems his time in the organization is nearing its close. One thing he does have going for him is defensive versatility, as he has experience in the corner outfield spots and at the hot corner, although this will likely only put his ceiling to that of a major league reserve.
