The Astros recalled right-handed relief pitcher Hector Ambriz on Thursday.

Ambriz fills the spot that was opened when the team sent Brett Oberholtzer back down to Oklahoma City before the All-Star break.

After struggling to a 2-4 record with a 5.40 ERA to start the season, Ambriz found his consistency after getting sent down on July 1. In four relief appearances for the RedHawks, Ambriz had a 1.80 ERA and a WHIP of 0.60.
