Ashton consistently hits for average, as well as a high on-base percentage. He has averaged better than a hit per game during his collegiate career with a low strikeout rate.
Defensively, he has primarily played second base and third base, but he can also play shortstop, first base and the corner outfield spots, so he offers a lot of versatility.
Ashton has also been a volunteer assistant coach at the junior-college level, and he would be interested in helping a team’s coaching staff.
He is an extremely hard worker – one of the “first-to-arrive” and “last-to-leave” types. He continues to work out and train on a regular basis to remain in top condition.

Ashton is a terrific individual and a very good baseball player. He has a very professional approach at the plate. He has pull-side power and pitchers absolutely need to throw good pitches in order to get him out. He’s a wonderful teammate and I can’t say enough about him as an individual and about his character.
Ashton is a great player with versatility. He has the ability to play 3 infield positions as well as corner OF. He is a true hitter, with sneaky pop. He knows and understands the game, which allows him to be a leader in the clubhouse. Ashton was one of the best players I’ve had a chance of coaching, and wish our time together was longer. Any team would be lucky to have him on the field, in the clubhouse and in the community.
