Astros call-up pitcher Dean Deetz for Major League debut

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Houston Astros made a pair of September call-ups.

Infielder J.D. Davis and pitcher Dean Deetz were both called up by the organization prior to Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Twins.

The 24-year-old Deetz has excelled with the Class AAA Fresno Grizzlies this season.

In 34 innings, Deetz has a 0.79 ERA while allowing just one home run and striking out 50 batters.

Deetz was suspended 80 games earlier this season after testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing substance in January.

The suspension makes him ineligible for the postseason roster.
