I reported on June 20 that Wojciechowski has had a long road back from injury. Earlier in the month he was sent to team's Spring Training complex in Kissimmee, Florida, to continue his rehab after suffering a flexor muscle strain. He progressed to the point of making a rehab start on June 18, but struggled, allowing
three earned runs, three hits, walked four and struck out one, in 3 1/3 innings. Wojciechowski was much better in his outing on Monday, allowing two runs, seven hits, no walks and three strikeouts, in four innings.
Brian McTaggart, who covers the Astros for MLB.com, tweeted the following update on Wojciechowski.
Astros activated RHP Asher Wojciechowski from the 15-day DL and optioned him to OKCWojciechowski pitched at Triple-A Oklahoma City last year and had an ERA of 3.56 in 22 games. He will continue to pitch at Oklahoma City for the time, being and there is no word whether or not the Astros plan on calling Wojciechowski up at any time this season. Wojciechowski is 0-0 with a 4.76 ERA in three starts for Oklahoma City this season. His minor league record is 31-22 with a 3.61 ERA in 85 games.
