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.

Astros SS Carlos Correa goes deep again in loss on Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros shortstop Carlos Correa is certainly making his case for American League Rookie of the Year this season. On Monday, Correa hit his 13th home run of the season, a two-run shot in the first inning. The early lead wouldn't hold however, as the Astros lost 12-9 to the Rangers.

The home run was Correa's fifth in his past seven games, and he is batting .345 with seven RBI over that stretch.

Astros C Jason Castro hits grand slam in loss on Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros catcher Jason Castro went 2 for 4 with a double and a grand slam on Monday, but it wasn't enough to avoid the 12-9 loss at the hands of the Rangers. Castro's blast, his 10th of the year, came in the fourth inning, but the Rangers were already ahead by eight runs at that point.

Castro has homered in three of his past four games, collecting 10 RBI over that stretch. He is also riding a modest seven-game hit streak, during which he is batting .385 (10 for 26).

Astros' Lance McCullers optioned following disaster start Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros rookie right-hander Lance McCullers had his toughest start as a big-leaguer in Monday's 12-9 loss to the Rangers. McCullers was able to just one out in the first inning before being taken out of the game. He allowed six runs on seven hits, including two-run home run by Shin-Soo Choo. The only out he recorded was a strikeout of Josh Hamilton.

It was a rough outing for the youngster, who drops to 5-4. He had been solid for the better part of the season, as he entered play having allowed more than three runs just once in 13 big-league starts.

The Astros announced McCullers was optioned to the minors following the game. It's likely a move get a fresher arm on the roster, and it's possible McCullers returns for his next time through the rotation.
