Wojciechowski helped save the Reds' bullpen Monday, allowing just one run over five innings after Scott Feldman had to leave with a knee injury. He allowed two hits and three walks, striking out four. Wojciechowski credited working higher in the strike zone for his outing, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.
Wojciechowski also threw two scoreless innings Friday against the Nats. He was able to induce seven infield pop-ups among his 15 outs. "Something that has worked well for me has been pitching at the top of the zone, using that to my advantage with how my fastball is and my other stuff is," Wojciechowski said. "I'd much rather get a weak popup than anything else."
Wojciechowski previously had his contract purchased by the Reds on May 20 but was eventually designated for assignment a month later after struggling in a starting rotation role. With Jackson Stephens being optioned to Triple-A Louisville, Wojciechowski will get another shot with the big-league club. He posted a 2.05 ERA and 27.8 percent strikeout rate over 30.2 innings with Triple-A Louisville this season.
Wojciechowski cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Wojciechowski will report to Triple-A Louisville after being cast of the Reds' 40-man roster Sunday. He struggled as a starter after being summoned to the majors earlier in the season, allowing 16 runs (15 earned) on 23 hits across four starts (17.1 innings). The 28-year-old owns a 1.40 ERA and 29:6 K:BB through five starts with Louisville this season.
After joining the Reds as a long reliever initially upon his May 20 promotion to the big leagues, Wojciechowski was thrust into the rotation after tossing 3.2 scoreless innings out of the bullpen in his first appearance with the club. He failed to carry that success over to a starting role, however, as he was tagged for 16 runs (15 earned) on 23 hits and three walks over 17.1 innings in his four turns in the rotation. Lisalverto Bonilla was recalled from Triple-A Louisville to take Wojciechowski's spot on the active roster, but it's not immediately clear if Bonilla will assume his rotation spot. If the Reds opt to use Bonilla out of the bullpen, the team could delve into the Triple-A Louisville ranks when a fifth starter is next needed Friday against the Nationals.
Wojciechowski allowed two runs on eight hits and two walks across six innings in a no-decision Monday against the Cardinals. He struck out six.
Wojciechowski retired the first nine men he faced and was sharp aside from a fifth inning in which he allowed a pair of runs on five hits, escaping without further damage thanks to an outfield assist from Adam Duvall. The 28-year-old entered with a 5.63 ERA through just eight innings on the season, but his first career quality start lowered that figure to a more reasonable 4.50, which he pairs with a serviceable 7.7 K/9. Wojciechowski is currently scheduled to start Saturday against the Dodgers and will look to establish himself in the rotation after this solid performance.
