The Houston Astros recalled pitcher Brad Peacock from Triple-A Oklahoma City Tuesday, to take the roster spot of outfielder Robbie Grossman.
Peacock, 25, was demoted after posting a 9.41 ERA in six appearances earlier this season. The righty went 1-2 with a 4.98 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 21 1/3 innings for the RedHawks. He'll likely pitch in middle relief.
Grossman, 23, collected 111 at-bats in 28 games for Houston, but batted .198.
