RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After breezing through 26 innings (three starts) at Double-A, Wojciechowski earned a promotion to Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he became the workhorse of the pitching staff. The 25-year-old right-hander logged 134 innings (21 starts) at the affiliate, compiling a 9-7 record with a 3.56 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. His mid-90s fastball, curveball and improved changeup forced opposing hitters to strike out 104 times against 44 walks. Wojciechowski appears close to the majors, and given the current state of the Astros' starting rotation, he could easily make the Opening Day roster out of spring training as one of the team's back-end options.
Wojciechowski's first full season as a pro didn't go very well as the 22-year-old from The Citadel struggled in the pitching-friendly confines of the Florida State League (1.435 WHIP, 4.70 ERA, 6.64 K/9IP in 22 starts). He's armed with a nice fastball/slider combination but needs a third pitch if he wants to make a go of it as a starter. The 6-foot-4 righty could advance quickly if the Jays decide to pull the plug on his days as a starting pitcher, but that would understandably curb his upside for those in keeper leagues.
