GM: Chad Qualls likely to stay put in Houston
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow told reporters that the team will likely not trade closer Chad Qualls before the July 31 trade deadline, MLB.com reports. Qualls has converted 11 saves in 13 chances with a 1.78 ERA over 35 1/3 innings this season.

"I hesitate to use the word 'untouchable,' but he likes it here, he's comfortable here and he's pitching well," Luhnow said. "To have a guy who's capable of pitching late in the game, in close games, we're going to have opportunity going forward. This is a team that's improving, and as the team improves, you have more save opportunities, more opportunities to pitch at the end of close games. We need more Chad Qualls. We don't need less."

Scott Feldman struggles with his control against Oakland
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Astros pitcher Scott Feldman struggled with his control Thursday.

Feldman had a rough start in Oakland. He allowed six runs on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings. Feldman struck out four and walked five during the outing. Feldman first ran into trouble in the third inning. Josh Reddick doubled to start the inning, and Eric Sogard followed that up with a walk. Josh Donaldson singled in a run, giving the Athletics a one-run lead. After an intentional walk to Brandon Moss to load the bases, Derek Norris drove in two runs on a single. 

In the fourth, Coco Crisp added a sacrifice fly to make it 4-1. After putting two men on in the sixth, Feldman was pulled from the game. Both runs came around to score, giving Feldman six earned runs on the day.

With the loss, Feldman dropped to 4-8. He’ll take on the Athletics in his next start.

Matt Albers, Jesse Crain could start throwing on mound in 10 days
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow told reporters that he hopes that relievers Matt Albers and Jesse Crain will be able to throw on a mound in the next 10 days, according to MLB.com.

Albers has been sidelined since April 22 with right shoulder tendinitis, while Crain is working his way back from biceps tendinitis surgery performed in October.

"It's one of those things it's taken so much longer than I, or they, originally anticipated that it's hard to put a specific date on it," Luhnow said. "They are progressing, and neither has had any sort of setback in a while, which is good news, but we're taking it very slow because we really don't think we can afford any more setbacks. It would probably cost us the rest of the season if that occurs."

Dexter Fowler may not be back until August
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder Dexter Fowler continues to make slow progress in his recovery from a right intercostal strain, and will likely not be back from the disabled list until after the July 31 trade deadline, MLB.com reports Thursday.

Fowler was eligible to be reinstated on Tuesday, but has yet to be cleared for baseball activities. He'll likely need a rehab stint in the minors before manager Bo Porter brings him back to the majors.
