The unexpected.

I'd wager he'll be more productive than Michael Young.

Would be the risky wager. Young has been quite productive this year with the bat.

.277/.342/.402

7 HRs, 32 RBIs, 38 runs scored

His slash line and counting stats are nothing to write home about.

Certainly more than what Streamer/Pecota project for Ashe this year.

Projections are hardly ever favorable for unproven rookies.

According to Streamer, your main man Yelich is going to have a line of .249/.308/.378 the ROS.

I think the 35/95 BB/K worries me the most. I have enough of those guys on my roster already.

Which further magnifies my point that expecting any minor league player to outperform someone with a respectable slash line like young is a risky proposition.

Touting my main man Yelich is a risky proposition.

Here's what I read on RW and it prompted me to pick him up....

Cody Asche - 3B - Phillies

Phillies purchased the contract of 3B Cody Asche from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The Phillies are doing their best to trade Michael Young, but Asche should get the majority of the playing time at third base regardless of whether a deal is ultimately reached. The 23-year-old was hitting .295/.352/.485 with 15 home runs, 68 RBI and 11 stolen bases over 104 games this season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley and should have plenty of value in NL-only fantasy leagues the rest of the way.

Can anyone help straighten me out as I'm obviously confused here....the #'s RW put out, looked pretty darn good and then I see the #'s you guy's posted and...well, not so much.....

The numbers posted by RW are what he's done in the minors to date, the other numbers are what some are projecting ROS.

Oh, why does everyone seem so negative on this kid????

Because he's no Maikel Franco.

Because he strikes out a ton and stolen bases in the 10-15 range are meaningless in the minors at projecting MLB totals.

So you're looking at a prorated .255 55 18 40 8 type player. Useful for a buck in nl onlys, but I'm not bullish. And I'm a phillies fan.

As a Phillies fan who lives closeby and watches the AAA affiliate, the Iron Pigs, Asche was good in the minors but not great. He is not a very hyped prospect although he had been hitting well in the minors this year.

IMO, they are moving him up so they can give him a look and get him out of the way of Maikel Franco. Franco is the future at 3B for Philly, Asche seems like a low ceiling/backup type player in the MLB. Here's hoping he proves me wrong.
