Gustave signed as an amateur free agent with the Houston Astros on May 25, 2010, and received a $40,000 signing bonus.
He played with the Gulf Coast League Astros in 2012 after spending his first two professional seasons with the Dominican Summer League Astros.
In 2013, he pitched for the Rookie-level Appalachian League’s Greeneville Astros, posting a 2–3 win-loss record and a 2.68 earned run average (ERA).
In 2014, he pitched for the Quad Cities River Bandits of the Class A Midwest League, where he had a 5–5 record and a 5.01 ERA.
Gustave was taken in the 2014 Rule 5 draft by the Boston Red Sox and traded to the Kansas City Royals after the 2014 season.
Gustave was placed on waivers by the Royals during spring training in 2015, and he was acquired by the San Diego Padres. Gustave was subsequently returned to the Astros by the Padres prior to the start of the regular season.
Gustave pitched in the Class AA Texas League for the Corpus Christi Hooks in 2015. He was named a playoff All-Star after posting a 5–2 record with a 2.15 ERA and 20 saves.
After the season, the Astros added him to their 40-man roster. Gustave began the 2016 season with the Fresno Grizzlies of the Pacific Coast League’s Class AAA affiliate and was promoted to the majors on August 10.
Gustave was named to the Astros’ Opening Day roster for the 2017 season. On April 19, 2017, he was placed on the disabled list due to a muscular strain.
He had Tommy John surgery in June, which ended his prospects of playing the rest of the season. Gustave finished with a 5.40 ERA in six outings.
While rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, he missed the whole 2018 season. On October 31, 2018, he was outrighted to the minors and removed from the 40-man roster.
