Deduno will start Saturday against the Mets, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Brought in on a waiver claim from Minnesota at the end of August, Deduno has given up three earned runs on three hits, with five strikeouts against four walks, in four appearances (4.2 innings) with the Astros. He made eight starts for the Twins early in the year, going 2-4 with a 6.52 ERA and 1.60 WHIP across 38.2 innings. The Mets don't present a daunting obstacle, but Deduno will still make for a high-risk option.
