I've seen him pitch in the minors at Round Rock, and he is the real deal. Had a one-hitter with 12 or 13Ks late last year one night that we went to the ballpark. I don't see him getting sent back down anytime soon.
From Sporting News:

The Astros will bring up Astacio (0-3, 4.63 ERA at Triple-A Round Rock) to start Wednesday in place of Brandon Duckworth (0-1, 12.60 ERA).
Fantasy Source spin: Astacio finally gets a chance to be the team's fifth starter, but we're not overly optimistic about his chances of keeping the role throughout the season.
