by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Thursday that the final spot in the rotation is down between Asher Wojciechowski and Roberto Hernandez, according to the Houston Chronicle

"I'm not really making declarations at this point," Hinch said, per MLB.com. "Coming into next week, we'd like to have a clearer picture, but today, on Thursday, there's still many [bullpen] combos we could go with."

Wojciechowski owns a 1.08 ERA through five spring outings (two starts). He has 13 strikeouts in 16 2/3 innings. Hernandez has 4.50 ERA, a 1.42 WHIP and 4:5 K:BB ratio over 12 innings of work this spring.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros starting pitcher Asher Wojciechowski continued his push for the final spot in the rotation with another strong outing Wednesday against the Phillies. Wojciechowski (1-0) allowed one run on four hits and no walks, while striking out four in 4 2/3 innings.

“It was a good day, defense played great and Hank (catcher Hank Conger) called a great game again, we were on the same page,” Wojciechowski said, per the Houston Chronicle. “Defense backed me up and it was a lot of fun.

“I’m just out there having fun and whatever happens happens. Just trying to look forward to my next outing, enjoy this one and just tomorrow get up and get ready for my next outing whenever that is and go from there.”

The right-hander has a 1.08 ERA through five spring outings (two starts). He has 13 strikeouts in 16 2/3 innings.

Astros' SP competition down to Hernandez, Deduno, Wojciechowski
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With the demotion of Dan Straily to the minors on Monday, the competition for the final spot in the Astros rotation is down to Roberto Hernandez, Asher Wojciechowski and Samuel Deduno.

Although, general manager Jeff Lunhow seemed to indicate Hernandez, who is in camp on a minor-league deal, might be the favorite for the final spot in the rotation.

"You look at what's going on with other clubs around baseball, and there's a lot of injuries, and having extra pitchers that are major league-caliber is something we value," general manager Jeff Luhnow said of Hernandez. "That's definitely a consideration."

Wojciechowski has a 0.75 ERA through four spring outings (one start). Hernandez is 3-0 with a 4.50 ERA through four outings (two starts). Deduno is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA through four appearances (one start).

Five pitchers still vying for final spot in Astros' rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Thursday the final spot in the rotation remains up for grabs, per the Houston Chronicle. The candidates vying for the fifth spot in the rotation are Samuel Deduno, Asher Wojciechowski, Roberto Hernandez, Dan Straily and Alex White.

“It’s the sum of the entire spring that we pay attention to, but you always want to leave a good impression in the minds of the decision makers and coaches and your teachers,” Hinch said. “They’re always big. And these guys that are pitching for a spot on the team or playing for a spot on this team as a position player, there’s a little bit of stress and pressure that goes into it. But that’s a good thing.”

Deduno and Wojciechowski will be on the mound Friday against the Nationals. The duo have pitched particularly well this spring, as Deduno has allowed one run in eight innings and Wojciechowski hasn't allowed a run in nine innings.

“It’s a point of emphasis for Sammy to get ahead and utilize all of his weapons,” Hinch said. “For Wojo to get ahead and for him to be able to expand on purpose is a great point of emphasis for him. Wojo’s changeup and Deduno’s fastball are pitches that we’re paying close attention to just because the effectiveness that they have on the hitters."

Asher Wojciechowski to make case for Astros' rotation on Sunday
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Asher Wojciechowski is trying to land the final spot in the Astros' starting rotation after spending the last two seasons in Triple-A. 

The right-hander will get a chance to make his case for the job with a start in Sunday's game. 

"I'm definitely appreciative and excited to get a start, and will just go out there and compete and have fun and see what happens," Wojciechowski told MLB.com's Brian McTaggart.

Wojciechowski has pitched five shutout innings this spring, striking out three and allowing three hits.

"I'm a big Wojo fan," Astros GM Jeff Luhnow said. "For him to emerge as a legitimate Major League pitcher this year would be fantastic for our organization. I'm hopeful that he can do it in a starting capacity."
