Hoyt was recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Thursday.

Jandel Gustave was placed on the DL with right forearm tightness, so the Astros dipped into their impressive bullpen depth and summoned Hoyt. It is a rare luxury to be able to call up a reliever with a career 30.8 percent strikeout rate in the majors, but that is what Hoyt brings to the table. He posted an 8:2 K:BB in five scoreless innings at Triple-A prior to the promotion, and should work in low-leverage settings.
