Fernandez was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Fernandez won't have to wait long before entering the lineup, as he is starting at first base and batting sixth at Houston on Saturday. The 30-year-old could earn himself some additional playing time at first base with Albert Pujols (knee) finished for the season.
