The Phillies brought Maikel Franco up this year to see how he looks at third base, and he hasn’t looked all that bad.
Where does that leave Cody Asche though? As far as he knew, this was his spot on the Phillies and now suddenly there looks to be some dissension among the Phillies management on who will play third for this team.
Asche delivered a win last night with a long home run to right field in extra innings.
Asche has been quietly on fire for the Phils lately, he came into last night’s game with a .324 batting average in his last 11 games.
Last night’s HR by Asche was his first career walk-off, and his 16th as a Phillies player. 11 of his 16 total HR’s have been hit in Philadelphia.
