Twins' Alec Asher: Inks MiLB deal with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Tuesday.

After being released by the Rockies in mid-March, Asher pitched in the independent Atlantic League during the 2019 season. The right-hander spent most of 2018 with Triple-A Columbus, where he recorded a 6.05 ERA and 1.60 WHIP with a 49:36 K:BB across 16 starts. Asher will have the opportunity to work with the big-league coaching staff before likely returning to the minors until potentially earning another shot with the Twins' bullpen.

Rockies' Alec Asher: Reaches deal with Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rockies, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

The right-hander split the 2018 season between the Dodgers and Brewers organizations, logging all but two of his 24 appearances (17 starts) at the Triple-A level. While with the Brewers' Pacific Coast League affiliate at Colorado Springs, Asher posted a 6.05 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 96.2 innings, numbers that don't portend well for him finding success at Coors Field if he should get a look with the Rockies at any point in 2019.

Brewers' Alec Asher: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday.

Asher was designated for assignment back on Tuesday to make room for Jake Thompson. The 26-year-old's 5.42 career ERA through 119.2 major-league innings wasn't appealing enough for another team to claim him, so he'll remain with the Brewers in an organizational depth role.

Brewers' Alec Asher: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Tuesday.

Asher was cast off the team's 40-man roster in order to clear room for Jake Thompson, who was acquired from the Phillies on Tuesday. The 26-year-old tossed three scoreless innings for the Brewers, but he struggled to a 5.51 ERA across 85 innings with Triple-A Colorado Springs. He'll report back to the Sky Sox if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Brewers' Alec Asher: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.

Asher was up for four games and made his second appearance of the season, tossing a scoreless inning Thursday in Pittsburgh. He could be up again in a low-leverage role at some point in the second half.

July 12, 2018 03:24 PM
Brewers' Alec Asher: Called up by Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday.

Asher will provide reinforcements within the Brewers' bullpen as the club gears up for five games in four days. He's only appeared in one contest with the major-league team this season, so don't expect him to serve out of any high-leverage situations. Across 62.1 innings with Colorado Springs, he's logged a 4.62 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.

Brewers' Alec Asher: Shuttled back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday.

The Brewers will swap Asher out with a fresh bullpen arm (Jorge Lopez) after the 26-year-old tossed a pair of scoreless relief innings Saturday against the Rockies. He'll continue to serve as organizational pitching depth for the Brewers in the minors.

Brewers' Alec Asher: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers recalled Asher from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday.

Asher was designated for assignment by the Brewers on April 19 and then outrighted to Colorado Springs after clearing waivers. The 26-year-old started three games for Colorado Springs, allowing six runs (three earned) on 12 hits and four walks over 14 innings. Asher has a career 7.4 K/9 in the minors and doesn't have much fantasy appeal. He could serve in a long-relief role for the Brewers after the team used six relievers to cover seven innings during Friday's victory.

Brewers' Alec Asher: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers outrighted Asher to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday, MLB.com reports.

Asher went unclaimed off waivers after being designated for assignment last week, so he'll stick around in the Milwaukee organization as starting depth in the minors. The 26-year-old right-hander made 24 appearances (six starts) with the Orioles in 2017, accruing a 5.25 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 47 strikeouts in 60 frames.

April 20, 2018 05:36 PM
Brewers' Alec Asher: DFA'd on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was designated for assignment on Thursday.

The Brewers made the move after acquiring Tyler Saladino from the White Sox. Asher, who was claimed by the Brewers on Tuesday, did not make a single appearance with the club during his time in the organization. He'll now be subject to waivers again and could return to the Brewers if he's not traded, or if he goes unclaimed.

Brewers' Alec Asher: Heads to Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was claimed off waivers by the Brewers on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

The right-hander was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers just 12 days earlier, but he'll head to Milwaukee now that the Dodgers deemed him unworthy of a 40-man roster spot. Asher has a good amount of big-league experience and allowed a single run in his first start with Triple-A Oklahoma City this season, though it looks like he'll be nothing more than an organizational depth piece for the Brewers.

April 5, 2018 04:04 PM
Dodgers' Alec Asher: Claimed by Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on Thursday, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

Asher was subsequently optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he will begin the 2018 season. The right-hander was previously designated for assignment by the Orioles last week. During 60 innings in the majors last year, he posted a 5.25 ERA and 1.40 WHIP.

Orioles' Alec Asher: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was designated for assignment by Baltimore on Thursday.

The Orioles made a slew of Opening Day roster moves, including casting Asher off the 40-man roster. He will remain at Triple-A Norfolk unless claimed by another team off waivers.

March 12, 2018 11:32 AM
Orioles' Alec Asher: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Asher will relocate to minor-league camp despite posting a 3.00 ERA over three Grapefruit League appearances (six innings). He'll serve as organizational pitching depth for the Orioles in 2018 after splitting time between Triple-A and the big club last season and notching an ERA north of 4.50 at both stops.

September 3, 2017 01:44 PM
Orioles' Alec Asher: Sent to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was optioned to Double-A Bowie on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Asher is expected to serve in a starting role for Bowie for the duration of its Eastern League playoff run. Once the postseason concludes, Asher should rejoin the Orioles and work in long relief. The big club recalled Gabriel Ynoa from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move to offer additional depth out of the bullpen while Asher is with Bowie.

Orioles' Alec Asher: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday.

He has a 5.28 ERA in 58 innings in the majors this year, primarily as a low-leverage reliever. Look for him to serve as a mop-up man in September.

August 23, 2017 09:24 AM
Orioles' Alec Asher: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

Asher was promoted to the majors on Sunday to take the roster spot of Miguel Castro, who was recently placed on the bereavement list. With Castro set to rejoin the active roster Wednesday, Asher will be sent back to the minors to rejoin the starting rotation for Norfolk. The 25-year-old tossed 2.2 scoreless innings of relief in his short time up this week.

August 20, 2017 01:00 PM
Orioles' Alec Asher: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.

With Miguel Castro landing on the bereavement list, Asher was summoned back tot he big club to offer an extra bullpen arm. Asher has worked primarily as a starter since being sent back to the minors, so he'll offer length out of the Orioles' bullpen. He compiled a 5.53 ERA through 55.1 innings during multiple stints with the big club earlier in the season, so he'll likely stick to lower-leverage situations.

Orioles' Alec Asher: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

After being tagged for five runs on four hits and two walks over 1.2 innings Saturday against the Rays to bring his ERA up to 5.53 for the season, Asher will head back to the minors with the hope of finding his form. According to Encina, Asher will work as a starter with Norfolk, leaving open the possibility that he could rejoin the Orioles as a swingman at some point later this season. Jimmy Yacabonis was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

June 17, 2017 12:52 PM
Orioles' Alec Asher: Moving back to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asher will settle back into a role out of the Baltimore bullpen, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

After another rough outing in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox, Asher officially lost his spot in the rotation for the time being. He was shelled for six earned runs over 5.0 innings, marking his third outing out of the last four with at least five earned runs allowed. Asher has actually posted strong numbers when used as a reliever this season with a 1.62 ERA along with a 1.20 WHIP across 16.2 innings.
