Wojciechowski cleared waivers and was outrighted to the alternate training site Sunday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander was designated for assignment by Baltimore earlier in the week, but he'll stick in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Wojciechowski worked as both a starter and reliever this season but struggled in both roles with a 6.81 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 31:15 K:BB over 37 innings.
Wojciechowski was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Thursday.
The 31-year-old struggled as both a starter and reliever this season with a 6.81 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 31:15 K:BB over 37 innings. Wojciechowski could remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde announced Sept. 6 that Wojciechowski would transition into a "swing role" out of the Baltimore bullpen, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Hyde isn't closing the door on Wojciechowski starting again, though that doesn't seem to be a likely outcome unless the Orioles' rotation is decimated by injuries. Through his seven starts, Wojciechowski posted a 5.17 ERA and 1.44 WHIP while giving up eight home runs over 31.1 innings. Since ceding his spot in the rotation to rookie Dean Kremer, Wojciechowski hasn't fared any better out of the bullpen. He's given up home runs in both of his relief appearances, including two three-run blasts to the Yankees' Luke Voit in his most recent outing Sept. 11.
Wojciechowski allowed three earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five across five innings Tuesday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.
Wojciechowski was tripped up in the second inning when he surrendered a single and double to begin the frame, ultimately resulting in two earned runs. He was otherwise solid, with the only other run he allowed coming on a solo home run. Wojciechowski has now allowed three earned runs in each of his past four starts, and he's only managed to pitch five innings in two of them. Overall, he has a 5.17 ERA with a 29:11 K:BB across 31.1 innings for the season. Wojciechowski is currently projected to take the mound Sunday against the Yankees.
Wojciechowski allowed three earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three across four innings Wednesday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.
Wojciechowski had to work out of trouble almost immediately, as he allowed two doubles in the first inning. However, he managed to keep the Rays scoreless until a two-run home run by Brandon Lowe the third inning -- the big blow of his outing. Wojciechowski now has a 5.13 ERA with a 24:10 K:BB across 26.1 innings. He is projected to take his next turn through the rotation Monday at Toronto.
Wojciechowski (1-3) took the loss against Boston on Thursday, pitching 3.2 innings and allowing three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four.
Wojciechowski was coming off his first win of the campaign in his previous start, but he was unable to replicate his success against Boston. The right-hander allowed a season-high seven hits and needed 88 pitches to retire only 11 batters. Wojciechowski's ERA rose to 4.84 with the rough outing while his WHIP spiked to 1.34. He'll look for a better outcome when he heads to Tampa Bay to take on the Rays on Wednesday.
Wojciechowski (1-2) gave up three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out two in five innings in a win over the Nationals on Saturday.
Wojciechowski allowed homers to Juan Soto and Trea Turner before Tanner Scott relieved him in the sixth inning. The right-handed Wojciechowski has a 4.34 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 18.2 innings across four appearances. His next start is expected to come Thursday versus the Red Sox.
Wojciechowski tossed 3.2 scoreless innings Sunday against the Orioles, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out four. The game was suspended in the sixth inning.
Wojciechowski stepped in on short rest Sunday and fired only 65 pitches, but he held the Nationals scoreless. After being charged with losses in each of his first two starts, he'll escape with a no-decision since the Orioles held a 5-2 lead when the game was suspended. The right-hander now carries a 3.95 ERA and 15:5 K:BB over 13.2 innings this year. His next start should come at home Saturday against the Nationals.
Wojciechowski will start Sunday's game against the Nationals, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Wojciechowski wasn't very effective in his last start Wednesday, but he only threw 67 pitches. As a result, he'll take the mound Sunday with John Means still on the bereavement list. Keegan Akin will be available in long relief after he was added to the active roster Saturday.
Wojciechowski (0-2) was charged with the loss against the Marlins on Wednesday after surrendering two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four across five innings.
Making his first career start against the Marlins, Wojciechowski pitched himself into a shaky first inning, issuing a leadoff walk to Jonathan Villar and a double to Jon Berti. After sending Corey Dickerson down on strikes, the right-hander allowed runs to score on a sacrifice fly by Jesus Aguilar and an RBI single by Brian Anderson. From there, Wojciechowski spun four scoreless innings, but unfortunately his teammates failed to provide any run support. The 31-year-old will carry a 5.40 ERA and 1.10 WHIP into a Wednesday matchup against the Phillies.
Wojciechowski (0-1) suffered the loss against the Yankees on Wednesday, throwing five innings and allowing five runs (four earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out seven.
Wojciechowski limited New York to four hits in the contest, but each of those hits went for extra bases, and three left the park. That was enough to saddle the right-hander with his first loss of the season despite racking up seven strikeouts in his five frames. Wojciechowski did enough well against the vaunted Yankees offense -- including inducing an impressive 18 swinging strikes -- to justify his spot in the rotation, though he'll have to go up against the Bronx Bombers again Monday in his next scheduled start.
Wojciechowski will start Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.
The Orioles' previously scheduled four-game series against the Marlins this week was canceled due to a COVID-19 outbreak among Miami's players and staff, and the Orioles will instead end up hosting a two-game set with the Yankees. Wojciechowski was scheduled to start Monday's contest, so he'll be the first to retake the mound for Baltimore.
Wojciechowski won't make his scheduled start Monday against the Marlins after the game was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak among Miami players and staff, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Marlins travel party remains in Philadelphia after as many as 12 players and coaches tested positive for COVID-19 during their three-game series with the Phillies over the weekend. The Orioles and Marlins were scheduled to begin a four-game home-and-home series Monday, but those contests could all be in jeopardy now.
Wojciechowski appears to be in position to open the season as the Orioles' No. 4 starter, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Manager Brandon Hyde has thus far been unwilling to confirm any rotation members or their order in the pitching schedule beyond stating that John Means would get the Opening Day nod. However, based on how the starting candidates have been lining up in intrasquad games so far in summer camp, Wojciechowski looks to be locked in as the fourth man behind Means, Alex Cobb and Wade LeBlanc, leaving Tommy Milone and Kohl Stewart to fight it out for the fifth and final spot. Wojciechowski has shown the ability to make bats miss over parts of three seasons in the majors, but the issues with the long ball (1.9 HR/9) and walking batters (3.1 BB/9) resulted in him finishing with an underwhelming 4.92 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over his 82.1 innings with Baltimore in 2019.
Wojciechowski has been developing a fourth pitch this spring, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Wojciechowski likely has a safe spot within the Orioles' rotation heading into the regular season, but he worked on a split-change during spring training.

Wojciechowski (finger) will start Wednesday against Atlanta, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Wojciechowski's spring debut had been delayed by a blister, but he's evidently past the issue now. He was originally slated to throw a simulated game Wednesday, but he'll pitch in a Grapefruit League contest instead.
Wojciechowski's Grapefruit League debut has been delayed due to a blister on his right middle finger, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
A blister this early in camp means Wojciechowski should still have plenty of time to get his innings in before the start of the regular season. The righty is set to toss a two-inning simulated game Wednesday, and is all goes well, he could be ready to pitch in an uncontrolled setting as early as next week. Wojciechowski is competing for a rotation spot this spring after recording a 4.92 ERA in 82.1 innings last season.
Wojciechowski (4-8) secured the win after giving up four hits and a walk while striking out six over six scoreless innings Friday night against the Red Sox.
Wojciechowski found success at Fenway Park in the series opener despite throwing first-pitch strikes to just eight of the 22 batters he faced. He would exit the contest with a 3-0 lead. With only two games remaining in the regular season, the 30-year-old will finish the 2019 campaign with a 4.92 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 80 punchouts over 82.1 frames.
Wojciechowski allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out four across 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Saturday.
Wojciechowski pitched fairly well through four innings, but he needed 76 pitches to record the 12 outs. Things worsened for him in the fifth as he allowed four consecutive hits with one out before being pulled from contest. Wojciechowski has now failed to work more than five innings in eight of his last 10 starts, also surrendering four or more earned runs five times in that span. For the season, he owns a 5.31 ERA and 1.35 WHIP across 76.1 innings. He's currently projected to draw his final start of the season Friday at Boston.

Wojciechowski will now carry a 5.38 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP into his next start at home against the Mariners on Friday.
