LHP Dallas Keuchel recalled; LHP Travis Blackley placed on DL

Keuchel Scheduled To Arrive In Houston Today

The Houston Astros have recalled left-handed pitcher Dallas Keuchel from Triple A Oklahoma City, General Manager Jeff Luhnow announced today.

Keuchel, who had not pitched yet for the RedHawks this season, is scheduled to arrive in Houston for tonight's 6:10 p.m. game vs. the Oakland A's. Keuchel made 16 starts for Houston in 2012.

Luhnow also announced that left-handed pitcher Travis Blackley has been placed on the 15-day Disabled List due to a left shoulder strain suffered during his bullpen session at Minute Maid Park yesterday. His DL stint is retroactive to Friday (4/5).
