Astros catcher Jason Castro said he was pleased with the progress he was making from a strained right quad, reports MLB.com. "The soreness has gone down quite a bit, so that's a good thing," Castro said. "All the reports have been pretty good, as far as what the staff and doctors think... It's only been three or four days, so we're trying to get it to calm down as much as possible before we start pushing it again." Castro is on the DL due to the injury and is hoping to return after his 15 days are up. "That's not something we've talked about yet," Castro said of a possible rehab assignment. "But because I have the 15 days to get everything in I need to do, that will be our kind of timeline and that's what we'll kind of shoot for, as far as how we're going to progress."
