Debut Details
April 8, in a 6-4 loss to the Brewers. The second of three pitchers, he allowed one hit over three scoreless innings, while striking out four before being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning. Of 38 pitches thrown 27 were for strikes.

Player Notes
With the Astros in need of another arm in the bullpen after Feliz tossed 107 pitches in relief earlier in the week, Devenski got the call. He’s been part of the Astros’ ‘piggyback’ starting pitcher plans. In 2014, between Corpus Christi and Lancaster (High A), he was 10-8 with a 4.04 ERA and fanned 114 in 118 IP, walking 30 while allowing 103 hits.
