The Houston Astros enter tonight's game against the Atlanta Braves with a record of 33-45, last in the American League West. Although near the bottom of the league in both runs scored and team ERA, the Astros are an improved club over last year's team that won only 51 games. The was some good news on the injury front, as prospect Asher Wojciechowski has been activated from the disabled list. He has been optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

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, tweeted the following update on Wojciechowski.
Wojciechowski 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.
