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.

Bass has been out for a month with a right intercostal strain. He's not close to going out on a minor league rehab assignment, so the window is closing for him to join the Astros before the second half.

Astros placed RHP Anthony Bass on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 11 with a right intercostal strain.

It's not clear at this point how long Bass will be sidelined. The reliever has recorded a pair of saves this season for the Astros, but the last one came on April 12. Josh Fields has replaced him on the roster.
May 14 - 11:56 AM

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

The Astros first tried to lock up the victory with Kevin Chapman, but he allowed a game-tying home run to Michael Choice in the bottom of the ninth inning. Bass came on in the bottom of the 10th and was able to seal the deal. Houston is using a true committee at closer.

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.

Anthony Bass pitched a couple of scoreless innings in relief Tuesday against the Marlins.

Bass has a 3.38 ERA and a 9/0 K/BB ratio in eight innings as he attempts to secure a spot in Houston's bullpen. It sounds like he will make the team, and he might even be a late-game option early on with no one else stepping up.
