Yankees pitcher Asher Wojciechowski left Sunday's game with right lat discomfort. Manager Aaron Boone hopes it's not too serious.
It's typically not a good sign when a pitcher leaves a game with lat discomfort, especially on his throwing side. Wojciechowski showed promise in 2019 with four quality starts but struggled in 2020 with a 6.81 ERA. Unfortunately, he was already a longshot to have any fantasy impact in 2021.
Asher Wojciechowski signed a minor-deal with the Yankees on Thursday.
Wojciechowski signed with the Yankees as a non-roster invitee and can earn up to $750,000 if he makes it to the big leagues. He posted a 6.81 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and a 31:15 K:BB ratio across 37 innings for the Orioles in 2020.
Asher Wojciechowski was designated for assignment on Thursday.
Wojciechowski has had an awful year, posting a 6.81 ERA in 37 innings. The writing was on the wall with this one. Expect the 31-year old to try to find a minor-league roster invite next spring.
Asher Wojciechowski pitched the last two innings of Monday's game against the Braves, giving up three runs on four hits and a walk. He did not have a strikeout, and the Orioles lost, 5-1.
Wojciechowski continues to have poor outings, and his ERA has climbed to 6.81. It would be surprising to see him with the Orioles next year.
Asher Wojciechowski came in to relief Travis Lakins in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees. He gave up six runs in just an inning and two-thirds, allowing five hits (two homers) and three walks. The Orioles lost, 10-1.
Wojciechowski is likely very close to being designated for assignment. In 35 innings, he now has a 6.43 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, and 31 strikeouts in 35 innings. The 31-year old shouldn't be anywhere close to a fantasy roster.
