Seth Martinez adds longer relief for the Astros.

Seth Martinez was recalled April 26, staying on the roster for approximately a week before it decreased to 26. The right-hander made one appearance in that span, throwing one inning on 13 pitches.

Martinez doesn’t provide much high-leverage, but the 27-year-old can give the Astros two innings of relief depending on pitch count. The right-hander last pitched Sunday, throwing one inning with one hit and one strikeout for Sugar Land.
