      Astros grateful to Asher Wojciechowski for saving bullpen wear

      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."
