Sprained toe has Astros 3B Luis Valbuena out against Indians
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena is sidelined Monday in Cleveland. He is out of the lineup after starting 21 of the previous 23 games due to a sprained left big toe that has him day-to-day, per MLB.com.

Marwin Gonzalez is set to man the position instead.

Valbuena is not getting benched for recent struggles at the plate. He has hit safely in four of his last five games and boasts a career-high .438 slugging percentage.

He did go 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in his only start against Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco, who is on the mound Monday.

Astros 3B Luis Valbuena hits another home run on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena continued his recent power surge, as he launched his 17th home run of the season on Saturday. Valbuena pounded a Taijuan Walker pitch in the second inning over the wall for a solo home run to give his club an early 2-0 advantage.

It wouldn't be enough, however, as the Mariners topped the Astros 6-3 on Saturday. The power-hitting Valbuena has hit seven of his 17 home runs in 17 games this month. However, he is batting just .175 over that span.
