Yankees will pick Asher Wojciechowski – .

Yankees consider selecting right-hander contract Asher Wojciechowski, manager Aaron Boone told reporters (including Kristie Ackert du New York Daily News). He will have the ball tomorrow night against the Phillies. The Yankees have a vacant position on the 40-man roster, so no corresponding move will be necessary in that regard.
Wojciechowski has already thrown in the big leagues for the Astros, Reds and Orioles. He had 198 innings at the highest level in four seasons, working at a cumulative ERA of 5.95 / 4.67 SIERA. Wojciechowski throws a lot of hitting but misses sticks to a slightly below average level and is an extreme fly ball thrower which has resulted in some issues with the home run ball.

New York signed a minor league contract with Wojciechowski in January. The 32-year-old didn’t make his season debut with Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre until late June after leaving a spring training outing with lat discomfort. He’s made four appearances since his comeback, none of which has lasted more than four innings, so he’s unlikely to work particularly deep into tomorrow’s start. Wojciechowski has a decent 4.29 ERA in games of eight Triple-A campaigns.
