Ascona is a switch hitting middle infielder born Nov 20,1995, roughly 5’11, 165lb, an athletic player with a fast twitch.  His trainer Edwin Castillo developed Ascona in Santo Domingo at Acdemia deportiva Edwin Castillo. He’s a plus runner with smooth hands and an above average arm. He has a solid approach from both sides of the plate and quick hands through the hitting zone. Presently his bat will play gap to gap with occasional power. The Reds picked up a solid player with a lot of upside. Francis Ascona and the Cincinnati Reds agree to a contract value of $150,000.00.


Congratulations to Edwin Castillo, Cincinnati Reds and the Ascona Family!
