Asher Wojciechowski got a no-decision in Monday's win against the Mariners, yielding four runs in four innings.
The right-hander allowed a bunch of base runners, as the Mariners racked up eight hits and drew two walks. Wojciechowski struck out six on the evening. Getting through the Mariners' tough lineup without allowing any home runs is an achievement at least. He'll get the Athletics on Oakland in his next start. Apr 21 - 1:41 AM

Astros recalled RHP Asher Wojciechowski from Triple-A Fresno.

Wojciechowski had just been sent down Tuesday, but he returns to replace the injured Brad Peacock (intercostal). He figures to serve as the team's fifth starter.
Apr 17 - 3:51 PM

Astros optioned RHP Asher Wojciechowski to Triple-A Fresno.

Wojciechowski had been scheduled to start Tuesday, but he was needed out of the bullpen Monday. Brad Peacock (hip) will now be activated from the disabled list to take the ball Tuesday instead. Wojciechowski tossed four scoreless relief innings Monday after allowing four runs over four frames in a start last week.
Apr 13 - 11:19 PM

Making his major league debut, Asher Wojciechowski was tagged for four runs over four-plus innings in a loss to the Indians on Thursday.

Wojciechowski allowed eight hits (including two home runs) and two walks, so his pitch count added up quickly. He was pulled after allowing three straight baserunners to begin the fifth. The 26-year-old earned a spot in Houston's rotation after an excellent spring, but we're not expecting much in fantasy leagues.
Apr 9 - 6:08 PM

Asher Wojciechowski picked up his first win of the spring Wednesday by limiting the Phillies to one run in 4 2/3 innings.

He struck out four and walked none. Wojciechowski has allowed two runs in 16 2/3 innings this spring, making him far and away the top performer of the candidates for the fifth spot in Houston's rotation. It still wouldn't be surprising to see the Astros choose Roberto Hernandez anyway.
Mar 25 - 4:28 PM

Asher Wojciechowski allowed one run in three innings of relief Friday versus the Nationals.

Kila Ka'aihue's homer was the first run Wojciechowski has given up in 12 innings this spring. He's pitched the best of the Astros' fifth starter candidates, if that's what it comes down to.
Mar 20 - 4:31 PM

Asher Wojciechowski shut out the Nationals for four innings in Houston's 3-2 victory Sunday.

No truth the rumor that we're rooting against Wojciechowski in the Astros' rotation battle just because we don't want to have to write out Wojciechowski regularly. Well, maybe a little truth. The right-hander has pitched nine scoreless innings so far, which could give him a leg up on Dan Straily and Roberto Hernandez in the competition.
Mar 15 - 4:28 PM

Asher Wojciechowski is planning to play winter ball in the Dominican Republic.

The 25-year-old right-hander lost a ton of time this season to lat and forearm issues, so he wants the extra work. Wojciechowski, the 41st overall pick in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft, owns a 3.75 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 7.1 K/9 in 515 1/3 career minor league innings. He'll hope to compete for a rotation spot next spring in Astros camp.

Astros activated RHP Asher Wojciechowski from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Wojciechowski has been out all season due to lat and forearm issues. He'll continue to hone his craft at Triple-A while waiting for a spot in the Astros' rotation to open up.

Asher Wojciechowski (lat, forearm) will resume his rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Wojciechowski had to be shut down earlier this month due to a right forearm flexor strain, but he's obviously feeling much better. The right-hander has been on the shelf all season with a strained lat.

Asher Wojciechowski (lat) has been shut down from his rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City due to a right forearm flexor strain.

The Astros don't think it's serious, but Wojciechowski won't appear in game action for a couple weeks. He's missed all season with a strained lat. "It’s nothing too severe in his forearm," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "Because he’s coming off of the other injury and wasn’t feeling 100 percent right we had a doctor look at him. We don’t think that there’s any real issue, but he’s not going to throw in a game for the next two weeks. He’s going to go to Florida and rehab and throw right there."

Asher Wojciechowski (lat) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Wojciechowski has been out since the beginning of spring training with a strained right lat. He'll need a handful of rehab starts and even at that point isn't a given to be added to the big league roster.
Wed, May 21, 2014 09:44:00 AM

Asher Wojciechowski (lat) is 1-2 weeks away from beginning a rehab assignment.

Wojciechowski, who missed all of spring training with a strained right lat, is currently pitching in extended spring training games. He's not a given to be added to the big league roster once ready.
Wed, May 14, 2014 10:17:00 AM

Asher Wojciechowski (lat) threw live batting practice at extended spring training Tuesday.

It's the first time he's faced hitters since going down with a strained right lat early on in spring training. Wojciechowski figures to progress to simulated games before eventually heading out on a rehab assignment. He's not a sure thing to be added to the big league roster once ready.
Wed, Apr 30, 2014 09:29:00 AM

Asher Wojciechowski (lat) has progressed to throwing off a mound in extended spring training.

Wojciechowski missed all of spring training with a strained right lat, but it appears he's making some progress. He could potentially be ready around the beginning of May but is no sure thing to be added to the big league roster.
