Jake Marisnick tripled, stole a base and scored two runs in a win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Marisnick made things happen with his legs in the fifth inning, collecting his 12th stolen base of the season and coming around to score when the throw ricocheted off his forearm and into left field. He later tripled and scored on a Jose Altuve single in the eighth. The 24-year-old has come down after a torrid start to the year, but he's still a dual threat who will have some exciting games for the Astros.

Jake Marisnick (hamstring) will take swings off a tee on Tuesday.

Astros placed OF Jake Marisnick on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Marisnick was forced to leave Thursday's game after sustaining the injury and wasn't feeling much better on Friday so the team will play it safe and put him on the shelf for a couple of weeks. Domingo Santana should remain with the club in his absence.

Jake Marisnick is considered day-to-day with left hamstring discomfort.

He was forced to leave Thursday's game after sustaining the injury. It doesn't sound as though it will require a trip to the disabled list, so look for the speedy outfielder to return at some point over the weekend.

Jake Marisnick went 0-for-4 and struck out three times Monday against the Orioles.

Marisnick has struck out 25 times in 74 at-bats this month after whiffing just 10 times in 58 at-bats in April. He's also hitting .189 in May after coming in at .379 in April. The Astros aren't going to want him send him down, not when he's still contributing with the glove in center field, but he should be due less playing time going forward.
