Phillies-Red Sox Preview

(AP) -- The Philadelphia Phillies haven't been shy about throwing the two pitching prospects they received for Cole Hamels into the mix.

Alec Asher's next audition comes in Saturday's visit to the Boston Red Sox, who have been one of the best offensive teams in the majors since right before the deal was finalized.

Asher is the second pitcher from the July 31 trade with Texas to start in the majors for the Phillies after Jerad Eickhoff debuted Aug. 21. The 23-year-old impressed by going 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA in four starts with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but his MLB debut wasn't as glamorous.
