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.
Peacock, who began the season on the disabled list coming off hip surgery, made just one start before going back on the DL. He took the loss in a start Tuesday against Oakland.
"Brad told us about some soreness after his outing," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com. "So we gave it a day to calm down and get an assessment on what exactly was going on. It looked like it was really going to impact his start on Monday. So a quick trip to Triple-A for Wojo."
Wojciechowski did not make a start for Fresno following his demotion earlier this week when Peacock came off the DL. He is 0-1 with a 4.50 EA in two appearances (one start) for Houston this season.
"Having [Wojciechowski] back is good for us," Hinch said. "We never really felt like we wanted to send him down. But he was a victim of circumstances and now he's back in the rotation."
"Obviously one of the things that we’ve liked during the competition this spring is we liked our depth," manager A.J. Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. "There are other guys behind them as well. I think the continual pressure on these guys to pitch well and do well is going to be there with guys like
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."
Wojciechowski, who was scheduled to start Tuesday, came on in relief to throw four innings, allowing no runs on two hits with four strikeouts.
"We need him to come here and be good," Hinch said per MLB.com.
