The Houston Astros have optioned RHP Jordan Jankowski for the second time this month after making his major league debut last week, reports Houston Chronicle beat writer Jake Kaplan.

Jankowski, 28, appeared in two games for the Astros. He allowed two runs over an inning on May 24. He allowed four runs on five hits on Monday, but the Astros stormed back to win 16-8. Jankowski was the winning pitcher for the Astros.

The Astros didn’t announce a corresponding move for Jankowski, but it appears that Houston will add RHP David Paulino back to the major league roster.

Paulino started the 2017 season on the disabled list with a bone bruise. Paulino has appeared in three games with Triple-A Fresno, he has allowed seven runs over 14 innings. He struck out 13 and walked nine.

Paulino will likely take over the role of long man in the bullpen with Brad Peacock stepping into the rotation with Charlie Morton on the DL.
