Asche agreed to a minor-league contract with the Mets on Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Asche will report to Triple-A Las Vegas and provide some extra depth to the Mets' organization as a utility man who can play all corners of the diamond. He appeared in 19 games for the White Sox in 2017, hitting a pedestrian .105/.177/.175 with four RBI and 21 strikeouts in 62 plate appearances. The 27-year-old is unlikely to make an impact at the major-league level.

Asche was shipped to the Yankees on Wednesday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

EDGE Analysis

Asche is expected to provide a little extra depth for the Yankees in Triple-A, though it's unlikely that he will make much of an impact at the fantasy level even if he makes it up to the majors. The 27-year-old only appeared in 19 big-league games for the White Sox last season, hitting a measly .105/.177/.175 with 21 strikeouts in 57 at-bats.

Asche agreed to a minor-league deal with the Royals on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

After six years in the Phillies' organization, Asche linked up with the White Sox prior to the 2017 campaign. He failed to impress in his 19 games with the big-league club -- going 6-for-57 at the plate -- but put up arguably the best numbers of his career with Triple-A Charlotte. In 347 plate appearances, the veteran slashed .292/.392/.495 with 14 long balls. Despite his minor-league success, he became a free agent at season's end and will now look to put together a strong spring training performance with hopes of working his way onto the rebuilding Royals' Opening Day roster.

Asche was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Asche was ineffective during his time as the White Sox's primary designated hitter, so they opted to cast him off the 40-man roster to leave a spot open in case they need a spot for an upcoming callup. He already accepted the assignment, so he'll continue playing in the organization as a depth piece moving forward.

Asche was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The White Sox plan to announce a corresponding move before Monday's game against the Angels. Asche hasn't managed to produce at the plate this season, as he's hitting a bleak .105/.177/.175 and sporting a 33.9 percent K-rate.

Asche is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Asche is not in the lineup against southpaw Hector Santiago after picking up consecutive starts before the off day. Matt Davidson will serve as the designated hitter in his place. The 26-year-old is off to a slow start this season, slashing just .107/.180/.179 through 56 at-bats.

Asche was pinch-hit for after on at-bat in Wednesday's game after failing to hustle on a play, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Asche, who entered Wednesday's game batting .093, struck out but failed to run to first base after the catcher dropped the ball. It was obviously a message from manager Rick Renteria, but it sounds like the matter's been worked out internally. "We have certain things we want to follow through with and he understood," Renteria said. "And I'll leave it at that." Asche was in Thursday's lineup as the designated hitter and went 1-for-5 with a double and two RBI.

Asche is not in the lineup Friday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Asche will head to the bench for the fifth consecutive game as the Tigers send southpaw Matt Boyd out to the mound. The 26-year-old is off to a brutal start to the season offensively, batting just .057 to start the season, so his absence from the lineup isn't all too surprising.

Asche is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With another lefty getting the start for Kansas City, Asche will head to the bench for a day off. That being said, the 26-year-old has been dreadful at the plate this season (.057 batting average), so don't be surprised if Asche begins to sit out against righties, as well. Matt Davidson will enter the lineup to replace Asche.

Asche is not in the lineup Monday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Asche will hand over DH duties to Matt Davidson with lefty-hurler Jason Vargas toeing the rubber for the Royals on Monday. He could find himself on the bench for the third straight game with Kansas City scheduled to send out southpaw Danny Duffy on Tuesday.
