Astros Injury Update: Darin Downs, Jesus Guzman


By on 8/19/2014 05:30:00 PM

As the Astros prepare to start a series in New York with the Yankees, they've placed Darin Downs on the 15 day DL with a left oblique strain. Downs last pitched Thursday against Boston, pitching 1/3 of an inning and giving up a run.




Downs has pitched in 40 games for Houston this year, recording a 2-1 record, with a 4.31 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.

Moving Downs to the DL creates room to activate Jesus Guzman, who will be activated for the series against the Yankees, reports Brian McTaggart. Guzman is not in the line up for Tuesday's game, but is available to pinch hit if needed.
