Hinch: Astros 'likely' to use seven-man bullpen in 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated that the team is likely to use a seven-man bullpen this season, leaving two spots open for competition this spring, the Houston Chronicle reports.

"Likely," Hinch said of a seven-man bullpen. "There’s always a chance that (changes) depending on how the schedule plays out, and there’s always a debate on how many pitchers to carry during interleague. Now interleague is pretty much year round, so I mean, in a perfect world with our roster, it’s likely to carry a seven-man ‘pen. If we feel like we need an extra pitcher or injury happens, there’s different ways to shape our roster, then we will, but likely 12."

The two open spots will likely be filled by a left-handed pitcher and a long reliever. The competition for the second lefty in the pen likely comes down to Kevin Chapman and nonroster invitees Joe Thatcher and Darin Downs. The long relief role has a broader list of candidates, including Alex White and Asher Wojciechowski, who will prepare both as starters and relievers.

"We’re going to stretch out a lot of our guys," Hinch said. "Some of them are because they’re competing in that fifth starter spot, some of them are bullpen guys. Will Harris is going to throw multiple innings. Obviously (Sam) Deduno has been a starter in the past, he’s in a competition for the fifth man spot. Wojo, White, those guys are going to need to, going to plan for the season on both fronts, whether it’s a starter or reliever. But we’re preaching multiple innings. It’s important if you have a seven-man bullpen that you have a couple of guys that can get four, five, six outs if needed and be a bridge to the rest of the bullpen."

Astros' Asher Wojciechowski moves to opposite side of pitching rubber
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

In an attempt to improve his delivery, Astros right-hander Asher Wojciechowski has moved from the third-base side of the pitching rubber to the first-base side, the Houston Chronicle reports.

"I'm really pleased with Wojciechowski, coming off his health issues and everything," pitching coach Brent Strom said. "He's throwing the ball extremely well.

"Wojo was a right-handed pitcher throwing from the third-base side of the rubber, slightly across body, which created a tough angle. We moved him to the far first-base side of the rubber, freed his arm up."

Strom advised Wojciechowski's new position this spring after the 26-year-old was slowed down by a lat injury in 2014. Wojciechowski is on the 40-man active roster and is considered an outside candidate for the rotation. He's competing against Dan Straily and Roberto Hernandez for a spot on the opening day roster.

Asher Wojciechowski wild in return to rehab
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Astros pitcher Asher Wojciechowski was rusty in his return to a rehab assignment Wednesday, as he pitched for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Wojciechowski pitched into the fourth inning and tossed 53 pitches, but had trouble finding the strike zone. He threw just 28 of his pitches for strikes, walking five and striking out one, while allowing four runs on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings.

Wojciechowski is working his way back from lat strain, and it is not clear how much longer he will be on assignment after his two-week break.
