Phillies | Cody Asche continues to sit
Philadelphia Phillies 3B Cody Asche was benched for the third straight game Wednesday, April 23, after manager Ryne Sandberg said he had faith in the youngster Monday, April 21. The team faced lefties both Monday and Tuesday, April 22, but they are facing a right-hander Wednesday. SS Freddy Galvis is starting at third. Asche hasn't started in six of the team's last 11 games. "He's not playing as well as we'd like," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "But we have to give him chances to play."
Fantasy Tip: Ache's slow start has found him riding pine more often than his owners would like to see. Sandberg is apparently very fond of Galvis and what he can offer the squad in a utility role. Asche isn't worth owning in most mixed leagues if his playing time continues to be spotty.
