The former Real Mallorca hit-man, who moved to Deportivo in the summer, grabbed a hat-trick in last weekend's 3-2 win at Real Oviedo taking his season tally to 19 goals.
Spain are currently second in Group Seven one point behind Austria, but with a game in hand.
Celta Vigo full back Juanfran has also earned a recall to the 19-man strong squad.
Jose Antonio Camacho's side play Bosnia in Oviedo on June 2 before travelling to face Israel in Tel Aviv four days later, and the coach admitted that the Bosnia game was a vital match.
"The game at home to Bosnia is our top priority," said Camacho.
"We have to win that one and we have to be aware that Bosnia are a talented side with a lot of famous players.
"Our players are tired but they know they have to give everything to make sure we qualify for the World Cup."
Camacho also insisted that Tristan had not been picked on the basis of his three goals against Oviedo and that his form all season had been encouraging.
"He's an important player who is on the rise," said Camacho. "I wouldn't have brought him here just on the basis of a hat-trick in one game."
