Cody Asche is Too Good for Own Hamstring

Cody Asche was having a busy night last night against the Mets.

The rookie/one of very few reasons to still be watching the Phillies went 1-for-3 with a walk and reached on a deflection. He even scored a run. Yippeeeee

But the trouble came when he reverse-Puig’d out of the batters’ box (that means he hustled, unlike that lollygagger out on La-La Land ha ha right guys) and busted it down to first base on the aforementioned ground ball deflection. He reached safely… but he was far from safe.

Asche was running a bit wonky after the ordeal, and was pulled from the game so that we could all worry about him for a little while before any reports surfaced. They’ve surfaced now, like a shark that eats hopes and dreams.

And that shark’s name is ‘mild hamstring strain.’ Asche is now ‘day-to-day’ as Dom was for a while, describing the discomfort as if it were a cramp.  No one is very concerned, but we will probably now be short Asche a few innings or games, and that’s honestly punishment enough.  Thanks a lot, hamstrings. You are in no way as silly or delicious as your name sounds.
