Astros Minor League Recap: September 3, 2012

New, 24 comments

Kind of a depressing day in the minors yesterday with Oklahoma City being the only team to win a game. And even then, they had a depressing night overall as well. They're win bought them a few hours of hope for the playoffs but Albuquerque won a few hours later and that sent OkC's playoff hopes to cellar. So, we will have Lancaster, Corpus, and Tri-City going to the playoffs.

Corpus announced their playoff rotation yesterday and it will consist of Paul Clemens, Ross Seaton, and Rob Rasmussen. I was surprised to see Rasmussen included in the rotation since he hasn't posted great numbers in the Texas League and that left Wojciechowski who has posted good numbers in the pen. Although, Rasmussen gives them a lefty starter.

Speaking of Wojcieshowski, he put up a very pretty stat line to close out his regular season last night. It was without a doubt his best start in AA so far as he allowed just one hit and didn't walk anyone while striking out six in five innings of work. He only threw 65 pitches, so you know he was pitching effectively and efficiently. He finished the season with two scoreless outings.

One final note is that Tony D has said they will call up four more after the OkC season ends today. One obvious choice is Carlos Corporan so they can have one more catcher. Speculate away on the others.
