PhilliesNation Interview: Third base Prospect Cody Asche

Phillies third base prospect Cody Asche is having a noteworthy campaign is his first full pro season. A 4th round draft pick in 2011 out of the University of Nebraska, Asche has certainly become a fast rising player in the Phils’ system.

The lefty hitting Asche made his pro debut last year as a member of the short-season Williamsport Crosscutter, posting a .192 average with 2 HR and 19 RBI in 68 games while manning second base. This year, the 6-foot-1-inch 180-pounder skipped a level and began the season at Class-A Advanced Clearwater, where he batted .349 with 13 doubles, three triples, two home runs and 25 RBI en route to being named a Florida State League All-Star. In addition, Asche’s excellent efforts earned him a promotion to Double-A Reading, where his offensive output (.200 avg, 3 HR, 14 RBI in 27 games) has taken a bit of a dip.

Recently, I spoke with Cody about his progress, his coaches, playing in front of Phillies fans and more. Check out the media player below to listen to the full interview.

    I am hoping Asche, who is starting to turn it on lately and showing power, will be ready to take over third base for the big club by all star break 2013.

    Would be nice if he’s MLB ready soon. I see the phillies keeping polanco around just for a platoon role or defensive help.
