Apparently Asche has tried 2B and it was about as good as when Utley tried 3B. AKA really really bad.

Catcher is a real tough position to learn with more chances at getting hurt, whether it be concussions or knee or hip issues. I'd probably try outfield before catcher. But really I think it's either 3B or 1B for Franco. If you want someone to move positions, it should be Asche. Franco is simply more valuable and has a much higher ceiling. Plus, Asche has said he will try any position to remain in the big leagues. I think Franco will be ready to come up by mid next season. If you want to keep Asche, I think trying him at outfield in spring training would be the best bet.
