    • Wojciechowski signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Friday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports. Wojciechowski started eight games, and appeared in 17 as a reliever, for the Reds last season. During those contests, he posted a 6.50 ERA and 1.44 WHIP while sporting a 64:19 K:BB. Moving forward, he will have to work on keeping the ball in the yard -- the right-hander allowed 14 home runs in 62.1 innings -- if he wants to make an impact with Baltimore in some capacity.

    • Reds' Asher Wojciechowski: Outrighted to Louisville
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wojciechowski was removed from the Reds' 40-man roster Wednesday. The 28-year-old made 25 appearances (eight starts) with the Reds this season, posting a 6.50 ERA and 1.44 WHIP over 62.1 innings. Home runs were a major issue, with Wojciechowski serving up 14 during his time with Cincinnati. He may return to the majors at some point in 2018, but Wojciechowski has likely pitched his way out of the conversation for starts at the big-league level.

    • Wojciechowski isn't listed as a probable starter for any of the Reds' upcoming four games, meaning he'll likely transition back to a bullpen role, reports. With Tyler Mahle due to pick up another start Saturday against the Pirates and Sal Romano receiving his second start of the week in Sunday's series finale, it appears safe to conclude that Wojciechowski, who hasn't pitched since surrendering eight runs to the Cubs on Aug. 23, is no longer a member of the rotation. Over his eight starts with the big club this season, Wojciechowski rarely found any success, but he's been an asset in relief when called upon. In his 18.2 innings out of the bullpen this season, Wojciechowski has submitted a 1.93 ERA (2.97 FIP) while limiting opponents to a .225 on-base percentage.

    • Wojciechowski could move back to the Reds' bullpen when first available to pitch again Aug. 28, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Homer Bailey is still fighting a shoulder injury, so the Reds will bring aboard prospect Tyler Mahle to start Sunday against the Pirates, while Bailey's next start will be pushed back to Wednesday against the Mets. The Reds have already confirmed that Sal Romano and Robert Stephenson will start the other two games of the series with New York, so unless Mahle struggles mightily in his MLB debut or Bailey endures a setback, it looks like Wojciechowski will be on the odd man out for a rotation spot. After Wojciechowski was lit up for seven runs by the Cubs in both of his last two starts, it became increasingly clear that he's better suited for relief work. He sports a 1.93 ERA (2.97 FIP) in 18.2 innings out of the bullpen this season, compared to a 8.41 ERA (6.01 FIP) in 35.1 innings as a starter.

    • Reds' Asher Wojciechowski: Crushed in loss to Cubs
      By RotoWire Staff

      Wojciechowski (3-3) was knocked out in the fourth inning of Wednesday's 9-3 loss after letting the Cub score eight runs -- seven earned -- on eight hits and three walks. He struck out six while taking the loss on his ledger. It's amazing that he collected more than half of his 11 outs via whiff, but that's not much consolation to those fantasy owners who took a shot on Wojciechowski in a tough matchup. This outing was eerily familiar to his last start against the Cubs just nine days prior, when the 28-year-old righty also gave up seven earned in 3.2 frames. Still, with few options available to the Reds, Wojciechowski may hold onto his rotation spot, in which case he'll make his next start Tuesday against the Mets.
