White struggled in his three appearances this spring, posting a 15.75 ERA with no strikeouts and six walks.
Five pitchers still vying for final spot in Astros' rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Thursday the final spot in the rotation remains up for grabs, per the Houston Chronicle. The candidates vying for the fifth spot in the rotation are Samuel Deduno, Asher Wojciechowski, Roberto Hernandez, Dan Straily and Alex White.
“It’s the sum of the entire spring that we pay attention to, but you always want to leave a good impression in the minds of the decision makers and coaches and your teachers,” Hinch said. “They’re always big. And these guys that are pitching for a spot on the team or playing for a spot on this team as a position player, there’s a little bit of stress and pressure that goes into it. But that’s a good thing.”
Deduno and Wojciechowski will be on the mound Friday against the Nationals. The duo have pitched particularly well this spring, as Deduno has allowed one run in eight innings and Wojciechowski hasn't allowed a run in nine innings.
“It’s a point of emphasis for Sammy to get ahead and utilize all of his weapons,” Hinch said. “For Wojo to get ahead and for him to be able to expand on purpose is a great point of emphasis for him. Wojo’s changeup and Deduno’s fastball are pitches that we’re paying close attention to just because the effectiveness that they have on the hitters."
