Asher Wojciechowski allowed two earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out four across four innings Wednesday against the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision.
Wojciechowski had his contract selected before the start and made his season debut for the Yankees. The 32-year-old righty has posted a 5.68 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 17/5 K/BB ratio across 12 2/3 innings at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. Wojciechowski can be left on the waiver wire.
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.
