 Biographical Information
Asher Wojciechowski was the 41st overall pick for the Toronto Blue Jays at the 2010 Amateur Draft. He was their final selection on Day 1 of the draft. The righty was ranked 22nd overall by Baseball America before the Draft.
Wojciechowski has pitched for the USA College National Team. He had a good year pitching for The Citadel; in 17 starts he went 12-3 and tied a school record for wins in a season. He led the NCAA Division I with 155 K's in 125 2/3 innings and was named the Southern Conference Pitcher of the Year. Wojciechowski majored in business administration at college. In high school, he earned three letters in baseball and one letter in football and received All-Region honors in baseball.
He throws a fastball that can hit 94 mph with slight movement, and also has a slider that can average around 83 mph. He occasionally throws a change-up. Scouts think he can be used as a starter for now, and that he may have a future as a reliever.
Wojciechowski signed with the Jays and made his pro debut with the Auburn Doubledays on June 22, 2010. He allowed just one earned run in his first three outings before going on the disabled list in July. He only made 3 starts in his first season, with no record but an excellent 0.75 ERA in 12 innings. In 2011, he was assigned to the Dunedin Blue Jays of the Class A Florida State League, where he was 11-9 with a 4.70 ERA in 25 games, pitching 130 1/3 innings. He returned to Dunedin to start 2012 and improved to 7-3, 3.57 over his first 18 starts. On July 20th, he was sent to the Houston Astros as part of a 10-player blockbuster trade.
