Cody Asche has been out for a month with a hamstring injury, but the Phillies are expected to activate the third baseman from the disabled list Friday.

Asche showed that he’s ready by going 5-for-6 with a home run in two minor-league rehab games at Triple-A. Before the injury he hit .258 with four homers and a .771 OPS in 40 games, improving upon his rookie OPS by 80 points.

He’ll resume starting every day at third base for Philadelphia, which has been using Reid Brignac as the primary fill-in.

    Couldn’t come at a better time considering by the looks of it in St. Louis Reid Brignac messed up his ankle.
