On July 18, he had three hits, two home runs, and four RBI against Richard in an 8–4 loss to the Padres. He was optioned to the Oklahoma City RedHawks of the Pacific Coast League on August 9 to make room for the newly acquired Tyler Greene on the roster; however, he was recalled on September 1. In 91 games (178 at-bats) with the Astros, Downs batted .202 with 15 runs scored, 36 hits, four doubles, eight home runs, and 16 RBI. In 24 games with Oklahoma City, he batted .267 with 14 runs scored, 24 hits, two doubles, three home runs, and 15 RBI. After the season, Downs was outrighted off the Astros' roster; he became a free agent.


In 2011, Downs made the Astros out of spring training as a reserve player. He had a game-winning double against Nick Masset on April 7, giving the Astros their first victory of the year as they defeated the Cincinnati Reds 3–2. On June 22, he hit a game-winning, pinch-hit, two-run home run against Neftalí Feliz as the Astros defeated the Texas Rangers 5–3. On September 19, he hit a game-winning home run against Masset as the Astros beat the Reds 3–2. He also made his first major league start in the outfield that day.
