No. 5: Cody Asche
Third base has been a hole in production for the Phillies for several years now. Placido Polanco offered a few brief years of respite, but as a whole the position wasn’t great. Perhaps the worst of anyone who manned the position since 2000 was Cody Asche.
Asche made his debut in 2013, just as the team was starting to plummet to the bottom of the standings. His rookie season was unspectacular as he hit .235 with a .691 OPS. He peaked in 2014 with a .699 OPS, but after that his stats continued to dip and he was replaced by Maikel Franco in 2015.
In 2016, Asche dealt with injury before serving exclusively as a backup left fielder. He hit just .213 with a 69 OPS+ that year in 71 games. After the year was over, the team non-tendered Asche and he became a free agent, ending his unproductive tenure in Philadelphia.
