Astros place Deduno on 15-day DL, transfer Lowrie to 60-day DL


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) The Astros placed pitcher Samuel Deduno on the 15-day disabled list and transferred shortstop Jed Lowrie to the 60-day disabled list on Monday, the team announced.

Deduno is dealing with a lower back strain, ROOT Sports reports. He didn't suffer the injury during his last relief outing but came in sore the day after pitching, the Houston Chronicle reports. He's posted a 6.86 ERA and 17:9 K:BB ratio in 21 innings.

Lowrie had surgery on his thumb earlier this month. If he meets the earliest part of his timetable for recovery, he'll likely be back around the All-Star break.

The moves open spots on the 25-man and 40-man roster for Monday's starting pitcher Lance McCullers.

“All things considered, surgery went well,” Lowrie said. 

Lowrie underwent surgery April 30 to repair the ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb. 

“I think that’s the hardest thing. As you can see, I got lasagna stains on [the bandage],” Lowrie said. “There’s some things that you just wouldn’t think about."

"I've talked to a couple guys who have [come back from] it and based on what the doctor says, it sounds like three months is a pretty reasonable time frame," Lowrie said. "If it happens sooner than that, great."

Lowrie suffered the injury while sliding into home plate. He was replaced by Marwin Gonzalez.

“I just stuck. I’ve slid like that my whole life,” Lowrie said. “I always slide on my left side and drag my knee across. Today it was like I just stuck. My knee hit and stuck and I flipped over and my hand was in the way.”

Lowrie was 2 for 3 with a home run before leaving with the injury. The home run was his fourth of the season and came off James Shields in the fourth inning.

Lowrie will fly back to Houston to have an MRI conducted on the thumb Tuesday, reports the Houston Chronicle

“It’s swollen and it doesn’t feel good, but I’m not going to overreact until I get an MRI,” Lowrie said.
