Astros' Luis Valbuena: Lands on disabled list Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

There was optimism earlier in the week that Valbuena would be able to avoid a stint on the DL, but after getting the last few days off, he's still not quite ready to get back on the field. The Astros recalled Tyler White from Triple-A Fresno in a corresponding move Friday to help with depth corner infield depth, but Alex Bregman looks to be the prime candidate to see most of the playing time at the hot corner in Valbuena's absence. Valbuena's placement on the DL is retroactive to July 27, so he'll be eligible to return in mid-August.

Astros' Luis Valbuena: Unlikely to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manager A.J. Hinch indicated after Wednesday's game that Valbuena (hamstring) appears doubtful for Friday's series opener against the Tigers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Valbuena tweaked his hamstring in Tuesday's contest against the Yankees, but the team hopes he can avoid a stint on the disabled list. If he indeed misses the game, Alex Bregman could be in line for another start at the hot corner.

Astros' Luis Valbuena: Ruled out Wednesday with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena (hamstring strain) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Yankees, the Houston Chronicle's Jake Kaplan reports.

He left Tuesday's game in the second inning with a hamstring strain, and considering the Astros have an off day Thursday, he will get at least two days off prior to the weekend series in Detroit. Alex Bregman figures to get the starts at third base while Valbuena is out.

Astros' Luis Valbuena: Leaves game with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena (hamstring) exited Tuesday's game in the second inning due to a hamstring injury, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Valbuena left after falling down on the way to first base, holding his leg and going to the clubhouse on his own power. The 30-year-old is day-to-day and could be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale against the Yankees, but it wouldn't be surprising if the team sat him out with a day off coming Thursday, while giving Alex Bregman an opportunity for another start at third base.

Astros' Luis Valbuena: Exits Tuesday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Valbuena (leg) left Tuesday's game in the second inning, holding his right leg after falling down on the way to first base, Angel Verdejo Jr. of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Valbuena walked off the field under his own power and exited to the clubhouse after the injury. Due to the injury, the Astros moved Marwin Gonzalez to third base and Jason Castro came into the game at first. It appeared as though Valbuena tweaked something in his leg, and should be considered day-to-day until there the team releases more information.
