Player Profile: Alec Asher

I have one card of Alec Asher, from 2016 Topps.

Playing career: Alec Asher debuted for the Phillies in 2015 and struggled mightily, going 0-6 with a 9.31 ERA in seven starts. While in the minor leagues in 2016 he was suspended for 80 games for use of performance enhancing drugs. The PEDs must have worked because when he returned to the majors in September he went 2-1 with a 2.28 ERA in five starts.

Where he is now: Pitching in spring training as he gets ready for the 2017 season.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Alec A, ahead of Alec and Mangus, characters on the television show Shadowhunters. There do not appear to be any other prominent Alec Ashers.

Coming up next; The next profile will be Michael Aubrey.
