Player Profile: Jose Ascanio

I have one card of Jose Ascanio, from 2006 Bowman Chrome Prospects.

Playing career: Jose Ascanio pitched for the Braves, Cubs and Pirates from 2007 to 2011. In 43 games he went 1-3 with a 5.28 ERA.

Where he is now: In 2015 he pitched at Oaxaca in the Mexican League, going 3-5 with 16 saves and a 3.09 ERA. He pitched for the Leones de Caracas in the Venezuelan Winter League; don’t know if he will be pitching in Mexico again this year.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Jose Asc, between Jose Ascencio and Jose Ascencio-Ibanez, both of which refer to an Assistant Professor of biochemistry at North Carolina State. There do not appear to be any other prominent Jose Ascanios.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jackie Bradley Jr.
