Astros' Dan Straily suffers first loss of year
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Astros Dan Straily suffered his first loss of the year, Tuesday against Texas. 

Called up from Triple-A to make his third start of the season, Straily four earned runs on six hits, both season highs. He lasted just 4 2/3 innings, a season low and struck out a season-low three batters.

Astros' skipper chooses to keep Scott Kazmir on schedule
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros manager A.J. Hinch was put into a pinch when he had to use the newly-acquired Mike Fiers in relief on Monday. Fiers had been scheduled to start and make his Astros debut on Tuesday, but a poor outing by Lance McCullers forced Hinch into using Fiers as a long man.

So, instead of having Scott Kazmir pitch on Tuesday on regular rest, the Astros summoned Dan Straily from Triple-A to make the start, with Kazmir staying on schedule to pitch Wednesday.

"It was an option," Hinch said of starting Kazmir on Tuesday, per the Houston Chronicle. "It wasn’t something I was interested in. He’s going to pitch tomorrow on an extra day’s rest. We’re in August. On paper it’s a lot easier to ask these guys to come back on short rest or to come back on even regular rest.

"But we had mentally prepared (Kazmir). We had physically prepared him. We had moved his bullpen for him to start on Wednesday. Just because we had a rough start on Monday I don’t think that we should alter that. It already cost us our Tuesday starter in Fiers. I don’t want to continue to disrupt and move forward the same issue. It never runs out until the fifth starter comes out."

Kazmir has thrown 14 2/3 scoreless innings over his first two starts with Houston. He'll start on Wednesday in the series-finale with the Orioles.

Mike Fiers' Astros debut comes in relief effort Monday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mike Fiers had to make his Astros debut a day earlier than expected, as he pitched in relief Monday against the Rangers after starter Lance McCullers failed to make it out of the first inning.

While Fiers gave the Astros five innings in the 12-9 loss, he allowed six runs on seven hits and three walks. He had six strikeouts.

"I was happy that Fiers came in and was able to get through the majority of that game by saving some of our bullpen pieces to live to start another day," manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com.

Dan Straily will be promoted from the minors to start Tuesday's game in place of Fiers.

Astros' Luis Valbuena slugs 20th home run in loss on Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros infielder Luis Valbuena has recorded his first career 20-home run season, as he went 2 for 3 with a solo shot in Monday's 12-9 loss to the Rangers.

Valbuena's blast was his 20th of the year, but it also broke a 23-game homerless drought. Even with the two-hit effort, Valbuena is still batting a low .206 on the year.
