Phillies | Cody Asche coming up

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Cody Asche will be recalled from the minors Tuesday, July 30, signaling that the team might be on the verge of trading 3B Michael Young. Young has been linked to the Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles and Texas Rangers, although a reunion in Texas is unlikely to happen. Young is in the last year of his deal and is unlikely to be re-signed. Asche hit .295 with 24 doubles, four triples, 15 home runs, 68 RBIs and an .837 OPS in 446 plate appearances for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Fantasy Tip: The Phillies are trying to build for the future, and Asche will be part of that movement. He has surprising power but like many youngsters, he can be overly aggressive at the dish; he had 95 K's and only 35 walks at Class AAA. Take a look at him in keeper formats and deep NL-only leagues if Young is dealt and he becomes the starter at third.
