Philadelphia Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said 3B Cody Asche is the "leading candidate" to enter next season as the team's starting third baseman. "I'd say come in and be ready to win a job," Sandberg said. "You've shown you can play here. You've shown you can play at this level. Come in and be ready to take the job." 3B Maikel Franco had a great minor league season but has yet to play above Class A.

Philadelphia Phillies 1B/OF Darin Ruf will get the bulk of the playing time at first base while 1B Ryan Howard (knee) remains sidelined, as a result of the team trading INF Michael Young to the Los Angeles Dodgers. INF Kevin Frandsen and 1B/OF John Mayberry Jr. are also capable of playing the position. Minor league 3B Maikel Franco, who has recently started playing first base, remains a long-shot to be called up this season.
