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."
Astros grateful to Asher Wojciechowski for saving bullpen wear
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) The Astros sent Asher Wojciechowski to the minor leagues on Tuesday, but his contribution wasn't forgotton by manager A.J. Hinch.
Wojciechowski was initially scheuled to make his first career start on Tuesday. Instead, Hinch called on him to come out of the bullpen in a seven-run loss on Monday. He pitched four scoreless innings.
"A thankless part of last night is what Wojo did for our bullpen," Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. "Being able to give him the ball and have him get those innings and save anybody from having to pick up a ball is a big deal. Over the course of a season, you want to limit how many times you have to use your bullpen when you don’t have to. Last night Wojo took it upon himself and finished the game. So that made all of us sleep better last night."
