The Houston Astros sent former West Virginia University catcher turned pitcher David Carpenter to triple-A Oklahoma City earlier this week.

Carpenter has a 4.02 ERA with seven unintentional walks and 14 strikeouts in 15 2/3 innings this season.

He made his major league debut last year with the Astros and has been with the major league club the entire season.

Astros Manager Brad Mills discussed Carpenter's demotion with the Houston Chronicle, "He's got major league stuff and he's a major league pitcher," Mills said. "We just want to get him to make some major league pitches. … He goes down there and works on some things, and he'll be right back here."

Carpenter spent time in Oklahoma City last season prior to his promotion to the major leagues by the Astros.

Carpenter is from Fairmont, WV and recently got to pitch in front of his family and friends when the Astros were in Pittsburgh to play the Pirates.

WVi caught up with Carpenter while he was in Pittsburgh. You can read more about that visit here.
