Astros assistant general manager David Stearns said Monday that he is hopeful Anthony Bass (intercostal) will be able to return before the All-Star break.

Anthony Bass earned his second save of the year Saturday in the Astros' 6-5 defeat of the Rangers.

Anthony Bass got one out in relief of Josh Fields for his second career save Thursday against the Jays.

Bass made things harder on himself, throwing away a comebacker for what would have been the final out of the game and allowing a run to score. However, he got another grounder afterwards to end it with the game being 6-4. Bass was called on tonight in large part because Matt Albers was off on paternity leave. He's not much of a threat for future saves.
