Astros promote OF Hoes, demote RHP Wojciechowski
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) The Astros are set to promote outfielder L.J. Hoes to Triple-A Fresno and send right-hander Asher Wojciechowski to the same team, according to MLB.com. The move was made to add a position player for the upcoming series against San Diego.
"It's exciting," Hoes said, per MLB.com. "I'm happy to be here and contribute any way I can."
Hoes has been sizzling to start the season with a slash line of .418/.458/.618 and 12 RBI in 55 at-bats. Wojciechowski has been battered in four starts with Houston, all of which lasted exactly four innings. He has given up 23 hits in 16 innings and owns a 7.31 ERA.
"We need to get Wojo back on track," manager A.J. Hinch said. "His stuff wasn't as crisp as he was in Spring Training. He hasn't gone deep into any games... [The roster move] was a combination of wanting to get Wojo back to what made him successful in the spring, why he made our team to begin with, and L.J. was the hottest guy down there to come up and play off the bench for us."

|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Astros pitcher Asher Wojciechowski allowed five runs on five hits in four innings of work in Houston's 7-6 win over the Athletics Sunday.
Wojciechowski ran into issues in the second inning when Josh Reddick ripped a triple over the center fielder's head to bring home a run. Then, Brett Lawrie chipped in a sacrifice fly to score Reddick. His struggles continued into the fourth inning when he allowed runners on second and third with two out for Lawrie, who singled to center to bring home two more runs. Craig Gentry added the final run with an RBI single to left to score Lawrie.
Wojciechowski, who remains 0-1 on the year, ballooned his ERA to 7.31 in 16 innings this season. He will look for his first win of the year Friday against the Mariners.

Astros' Peacock goes back on DL, Wojciechowski recalled
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday due to a left intercostal strain, the team announced. To take his roster spot, starting pitcher Asher Wojciechowski was recalled from Triple-A Fresno.
Peacock, who began the season on the disabled list coming off hip surgery, made just one start before going back on the DL. He took the loss in a start Tuesday against Oakland.
"Brad told us about some soreness after his outing," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com. "So we gave it a day to calm down and get an assessment on what exactly was going on. It looked like it was really going to impact his start on Monday. So a quick trip to Triple-A for Wojo."
Wojciechowski did not make a start for Fresno following his demotion earlier this week when Peacock came off the DL. He is 0-1 with a 4.50 EA in two appearances (one start) for Houston this season.
"Having [Wojciechowski] back is good for us," Hinch said. "We never really felt like we wanted to send him down. But he was a victim of circumstances and now he's back in the rotation."
Dan Straily, Sam Deduno, Mark Appel provide Astros starting depth
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) The Astros have plenty of depth for the starting rotation, both in the bullpen and in the minor leagues.
Asher Wojciechowski, sent to Triple-A on Tuesday, has pitched out of the rotation and bullpen.
"Obviously one of the things that we’ve liked during the competition this spring is we liked our depth," manager A.J. Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. "There are other guys behind them as well. I think the continual pressure on these guys to pitch well and do well is going to be there with guys like Dan Straily and obviously Mark Appel’s at Double-A. ... With Wojo now at Triple-A, he’s always a possibility. Sam Deduno in the bullpen is always a possibility. I think these guys always know they’re pitching for their spot. ... They know there are options."
