Astros News: Buchanan called up to start; Peacock scratched

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Astros called up to Jake Buchanan for first major league start. Brad Peacock scratched for food poisoning; Paul Clemens returned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The road to the show is filled with twist and turns, but I'm sure Jake Buchanan isn't complaining about his opportunity. Brad Peacock was scratched from his start Saturday as a result of food poisoning. Buchanan will be making the start Saturday in Peacock's place.

A spot was cleared for Buchanan as Jose Cisnero put on a 60-day disabled list after having Tommy John surgery. Paul Clemens was sent down to Triple-A Oklahoma City to make room for Buchanan on the 25-man roster.

Buchanan has made 13 starts (14 appearances) in Triple-A Oklahoma City, he has a 6-4 record with a 3.54 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. He has 44 strikeouts and 10 walks in 2014. Buchanan's last start was on June 15, giving up five runs over seven inning against Las Vegas.

Jake Buchanan was drafted out of North Carolina State in the eighth round in 2010. He is a control pitcher that works best down in the zone, he has an arsenal of sinker, cutter, and curveball.

Note: Michael Foltynewicz started tonight for Oklahoma City, if anyone is asking.
