A native of Boise, Idaho, Hoyt went undrafted after college and spent two years pitching in independent leagues and posting ridiculous strikeout totals before landing in the Atlanta Braves organization in 2013. The Astros acquired Hoyt in a trade with the Braves prior to the 2015 season. After posting 28 saves while striking out over 15 batters per 9 innings at AAA Fresno, Hoyt got the call to Houston on August 3, 2016.
