by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:28 pm ET) The Astros have placed rookie sensation George Springer on the disabled list with a right quad injury and knee soreness that had prevented him from playing since Saturday.

Springer had one hit in his last 13 at-bats, but it was a solo home run. He has 20 taters in 295 at-bats this year to go along with a stat line of .231/.336/.468. His 114 strikeouts have certainly been a concern.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Swarzak raised his record to 2-0 by throwing 74 pitches in five innings and giving up one run on two hits. He walked one and struck out three. He is expected to return to the bullpen after taking the place of Kyle Gibson for the one start.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:59 pm ET) Red Sox all-purpose standout Brock Holt is out of the lineup Wednesday in Toronto for the first time in two months. He is coming off an 0-for-4 effort that ended a seven-game hitting streak.

Brian Roberts not playing Wednesday for Yankees
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
