After being claimed on waivers from Philadelphia on July 21, Figueroa was 5-4 in 18 appearances with Houston last season. He is 2-0 with a 3.86 ERA in four spring starts.
Figueroa's spot in the rotation was sealed when 20-year-old Jordan Lyles was among seven players sent to their minor league camp Monday.
