Asche signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Thursday. Asche has not appeared in the majors since 2017, when he played in 19 games with the White Sox. The 29-year-old struggled in limited action at the Double-A level last season, recording a .655 OPS with one home run and 28 strikeouts over 23 games. Given Asche's past experience in the big leagues, it wouldn't be surprising if he's a non-roster invitee during spring training.
Asche signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Friday. Boston's infield depth at Triple-A has been depleted by injuries, so Asche will provide some short-term help. Chad De La Guerra was placed on the injured list as a corresponding move.
Asche signed a contract with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League on Tuesday, Mike Ashmore of the Trentonian reports. Asche joined the Dodgers on a minor-league deal in February but was apparently unable to make a lasting impression.

Asche signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Thursday. It's unclear if the deal includes an invitation to spring training, but Asche figures to open (and spend most of) the season in the minors either way. The 28-year-old split time between Triple-A Las Vegas (Mets) and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2018, hitting a combined .220/.304/.399 with 11 homers in 105 games. Across parts of five major-league seasons (390 games), Asche owns a career .234/.293/.376 slash line.
Asche agreed to a minor-league contract with the Mets on Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Asche will report to Triple-A Las Vegas and provide some extra depth to the Mets' organization as a utility man who can play all corners of the diamond. He appeared in 19 games for the White Sox in 2017, hitting a pedestrian .105/.177/.175 with four RBI and 21 strikeouts in 62 plate appearances. The 27-year-old is unlikely to make an impact at the major-league level.
