Matt Albers to resume throwing Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros pitcher Matt Albers is scheduled to throw off a mound Friday, MLB.com reports. He has been on the disabled list since April 22 with shoulder tendinitis.

"I've been feeling pretty good," Albers said. "I think I felt pretty good a couple of times and then when I got off the mound, I had a setback. Hopefully, this time we're making sure I stretch it out and get some extra throwing in before I get back off the mound, but it's feeling pretty good right now."

Albers added that he expects to throw at 70-75 percent intensity Friday in order not to push himself too hard as he attempts to return from a lengthy injury.

Chad Qualls blasted for five runs in blown save Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros pitcher Chad Qualls was rocked in a blown save Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on four hits and one walk in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 7-4 loss to the A's.

Qualls (1-2) was handed a 4-1 lead going into the ninth inning, but he let the A's tie the game with two outs before being removed with two runners still on base, both of whom would come around to score. Qualls owns a 3.19 ERA and 33:5 K:BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings.

Scott Feldman tosses seven one-run innings vs. A's
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros pitcher Scott Feldman didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on five hits and three walks in seven innings and striking out one in his team's 7-4 loss to the A's.

Feldman gave up a fifth-inning solo home run but was otherwise able to navigate through baserunners to end a three-start losing streak. The bullpen denied him a win with an ugly ninth inning. Feldman owns a 4.39 ERA and 62:35 K:BB ratio in 108 2/3 innings. He's slated to take on the Blue Jays Sunday.

George Springer takes batting practice Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder George Springer participated in batting practice on the field Tuesday for the first time since going on the disabled list, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Springer is expected to increase his activities over the next few days. "He’s increased his activity every day," manager Bo Porter said. "I think yesterday he was able to throw and do a little shagging. He’s been hitting in the cage and he’s going to continue to hit and it seems like he’s progressing well."

Springer hasn't played since July 19 while dealing with a quad injury.
