Wojciechowski to undergo more tests on lat strain

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- After undergoing an MRI on Monday, right-hander Asher Wojciechowski (right lat strain) will undergo more tests, Astros manager Bo Porter said on Wednesday. Wojciechowski is in Houston for a platelet-rich plasma injection, which helps injuries which are slow to heal.

"They're doing some more tests," Porter said. "We're going to continue to let the doctors and the trainers run all the tests in which they need to run and give me the information as they get it."

Wojciechowski, who first suffered the injury on Feb. 1, told MLB.com he felt like he re-aggravated the injury when trying to throw last Thursday.

The Astros do not want to rush Wojciechowski, whom they acquired in a 10-player trade with the Blue Jays in July 2012. He is Houston's No. 12 ranked prospect.
