PITTSBURGH -- The Houston Astros placed outfielder Jason Bourgeois on the 15-day disabled list before their game against the Pirates on Sunday and purchased the contract of infielder Joe Inglett to take his place on the roster.

One of the majors' hottest hitters over the past week, Bourgeois strained his left oblique coming out of the batter's box when he grounded back to the mound during the sixth inning of Houston's 6-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday night.

Bourgeois had started each of the past seven games and had hit safely in all of them, going 14 for 27 with seven stolen bases. He is tied for second in the majors in steals with 12 despite having only 57 plate appearances.

Inglett went 5 for 24 with three runs and an RBI in 17 games earlier this season with the Astros.

Designated for assignment April 29, Inglett was 1 for 7 with five walks and two steals in four games for Triple-A Oklahoma City this past week.
