Phillies looking to add another piece to their rebuilding core in draft
Cody Asche has been summoned from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and will be plugged into the Phillies lineup as their left fielder. The converted third baseman was only batting .245/.632 before being temporarily demoted to learn his new position. Hopefully he can get the stick going upon his return. The Phils surely need the offense. To make room on the 25-man and 40-man rosters, Grady Sizemore was designated for assignment. No big loss. He was signed to an unwarranted $2M contract in the offseason, but didn’t even produce enough to deserve a minor league pact.

NEW YORK – The Phillies can only hope that Cody Asche’s move from third base to left field works as well as it has for another former University of Nebraska star.
Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth, who has been on the disabled list with a wrist injury, got more bad news Thursday. A CT scan revealed he has two small fractures in his left wrist and could be out of action until August, a source told The Washington Post.

NEW YORK – It was only the second week of the season and Ryne Sandberg was already answering questions about Ryan Howard’s struggles at the plate. Some of the first baseman’s inconsistency stemmed from his not taking advantage of the abundance of fastballs thrown his way, the Phillies manager noted at the time.

As the trade deadline approaches and the lefthander continues to pitch well, offers should become numerous and enticing.
