ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- The Houston Astros have called up left-hander Wade LeBlanc from Oklahoma City and optioned rookie outfielder Marc Krauss of Deshler to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Houston made the move with LeBlanc on Monday before opening a three-game series at Texas.
LeBlanc was claimed off waivers by the Astros from Miami in June. He had a 9.82 ERA in 32⁄3 innings in three appearances earlier this season for the Astros, and was 3-1 with a 4.33 ERA at Oklahoma City.
Krauss, a Patrick Henry graduate, hit .162 in 32 games for the Astros.
