September Call-Ups starting

Outfielder Trevor Crowe and reliever Jorge De Leon have been called up from Oklahoma City and will be in uniform for Houston today against Seattle. 

Crowe hit .200/.282/.286 for the Astros in a 34-game stint in May/June that ended with him crashing into the wall and injuring his shoulder. In 30 games for OKC since coming off the DL and a couple of rehab games in the GCL, he's hitting .301/.326/.358 with 17K:5BB in 131 PAs.

In 12 games for OKC (15IP), De Leon has allowed 8H/1ER, 12K:2BB for an 0.60 ERA/0.67 WHIP. He made two relief appearances for the Astros against the Rangers on August 9 and 11 (both losses), allowing 3H/2ER, 1K:1BB in 1.2IP. 

OKC's playoffs begin on Wednesday.
