Asher Wojciechowski will indeed make his Yankees debut Wednesday night, as the team selected his contract from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to their game against the Phillies.

To make room for Wojciechowski on the 26-man roster, infielder Hoy Park was outrighted to Triple-A.

Wojciechowski, 33, signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees this offseason, and has pitched just 12 2/3 innings this year coming off an injury suffered this spring. He is coming off a strong outing, however, on July 15, where he threw four innings of one-run ball with seven strikeouts.

The righty has made 57 MLB appearances (34 starts) over parts of four seasons with Baltimore, Cincinnati, and Houston, going 9-15 with a 5.95 ERA in 198 innings.

Park, who was called up as one of the Yankees’ COVID-19 replacements, made just one big-league appearance, entering as a pinch-hitter in the Yankees’ loss to Boston last Friday. He grounded out in his only plate appearance and played two innings in right field, his first career action at any level in that spot.
