Wojciechowski did not make an appearance during his latest stint with the big club, though he could very well be next in line for another promotion when the Astros are in need of another arm in the rotation or the bullpen.
Gregerson has recorded seven saves for the surging Astros and has not allowed a run in five of his last six appearances. Pat Neshek and Chad Qualls are likely to pick up any save opportunities while Gregerson is out.
Wojciechowski made four appearances (three starts) for the Astros earlier this year, compiling a 7.31 ERA in 16 innings. He could receive a start while he is back up with the club.
"It's exciting," Hoes said, per MLB.com. "I'm happy to be here and contribute any way I can."
Hoes has been sizzling to start the season with a slash line of .418/.458/.618 and 12 RBI in 55 at-bats. Wojciechowski has been battered in four starts with Houston, all of which lasted exactly four innings. He has given up 23 hits in 16 innings and owns a 7.31 ERA.
"We need to get Wojo back on track," manager A.J. Hinch said. "His stuff wasn't as crisp as he was in Spring Training. He hasn't gone deep into any games... [The roster move] was a combination of wanting to get Wojo back to what made him successful in the spring, why he made our team to begin with, and L.J. was the hottest guy down there to come up and play off the bench for us."
Wojciechowski ran into issues in the second inning when Josh Reddick ripped a triple over the center fielder's head to bring home a run. Then, Brett Lawrie chipped in a sacrifice fly to score Reddick. His struggles continued into the fourth inning when he allowed runners on second and third with two out for Lawrie, who singled to center to bring home two more runs. Craig Gentry added the final run with an RBI single to left to score Lawrie.
Wojciechowski, who remains 0-1 on the year, ballooned his ERA to 7.31 in 16 innings this season. He will look for his first win of the year Friday against the Mariners.
Wojciechowski surrendered four runs on eight hits over four innings of work Monday. He also struck out six batters, while walking two in his second start of the season. Wojciechowski also failed to go past the fourth inning in his first start of the season. His ERA now stands at 6.00.
His next start is expected to be Saturday at Oakland.
