Asher Wojciechowski returns to camp after PRP injection


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2014) Astros pitcher Asher Wojciechowski returned to camp Friday after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection for his strained lat, MLB.com reports.

Wojciechowski treated the area with ice Friday but does not have a timetable to resume throwing.

"I don't know exactly the time frame or plan," he said. "All I know is we're going to rest it and maybe in a few more days start testing it, and I don't know when I'm going to start throwing yet. Hopefully soon."

The big thing is to be ready for the season, because I definitely don't want this to flare up once the season starts."

Wojciechowski is recovering from a lat strain. He went 11-8 with a 3.32 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 131:51 K:BB ratio in 160 innings between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Oklahoma City last season.

Asher Wojciechowski doing well since trade


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2013) Astros pitching prospect Asher Wojciechowski made his season debut Saturday for Double-A Corpus Christi. The 2010 supplemental first-round pick allowed a hit and a walk in five scoreless innings. He struck out seven.

"I think I was just locating my fastball well and throwing and locating my slider well," Wojciechowski told MLB.com. "I was just making quality strikes and quality pitches when I needed to."

It hasn't taken Wojciechowski long to acclimate to the Houston organization. He arrived last summer as part of the trade that sent J.A. Happ to Toronto. Wojciechowski was 2-2 with a 2.06 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in eight starts for Corpus Christi last season following the trade.

"I would say so, in knowing how things work here and how I pitched last year and taking it into this year and staying on that roll," Wojciechowski said. "I'm definitely comfortable here and am looking to get better each day."
