Projected Opening Day third baseman Cody Asche left Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates with a bruised right hand after being drilled with a pitch by Yao-Hsun Yang. A preliminary ultrasound scan on the injured hand came back negative, the team announced. 

"It should be alright," said Asche, who said the current plan is to ice the hand to combat swelling and then reevaluate it tomorrow. 

Asche was replaced on base by top prospect Maikel Franco, who Ryne Sandberg has said is competing with Asche for a potential role at third base. With Asche healthy, Franco is not believed to have a strong chance to make the Opening Day roster. Behind Asche on the depth chart are utility man Freddy Galvis and veteran infielder Kevin Frandsen.
