Joe Musgrove was pounded for nine runs and 12 hits in 3 2/3 innings by the Mariners on Friday.

If the Astros had their bullpen set up more like they did last year, with Chris Devenski and Michael Feliz ready to pitch longer outings, they might have been able to stay in this game. As is, they kept Musgrove in the contest even as they were down 7-1 after three, giving him the chance to allow two more runs in the fourth. Musgrove's time in the rotation needs to come to at least a temporary end.

Astros recalled LHP Reymin Guduan from Triple-A Fresno.

Guduan allowed three runs over three appearances in an earlier stint in the majors. He'll be used in middle relief.
Jun 23 - 4:55 PM

Astros optioned RHP Dayan Diaz to Triple-A Fresno.

Diaz holds a 12.00 ERA over seven relief appearances with the big club this season. Reymin Guduan is replacing him in the bullpen.

Charlie Morton (lat) allowed one run over two innings of work in his first rehab start with Triple-A Fresno on Thursday.

Morton surrendered two hits and a walk while recording one strikeout. Obviously, he's going to need to build up his pitch count more before rejoining the Astros' rotation, so expect him to make at least a couple more rehab starts.

George Springer (hand) hopes to be in the lineup Friday against the Mariners.

Springer lobbied to stay in Thursday's game after taking a pitch off his left hand but was overruled by manager A.J. Hinch. His X-rays came back negative and the Astros are hoping he'll be available for Friday night's series opener. The Astros appear to have dodged a major bullet here.

Josh Reddick mashed his seventh homer Thursday in the Astros’ win over Oakland.

He padded the Astros’ lead in the sixth inning by driving a solo blast to right center off Michael Brady. Reddick scored four of Houston's 12 runs while finishing a single shy of the cycle. The 30-year-old has gone 5-for-8 in two games since coming off the concussion disabled list.

Marwin Gonzalez drilled his 13th homer in Thursday’s 12-9 win over the A’s.

Gonzalez capped an eight-run second inning by slugging a three-run shot off right-hander Jesse Hahn. He also contributed a ninth-inning single. The 28-year-old utility man has been a big-time contributor for the Astros, slashing .312/.400/.590 over 173 at-bats this year.

Jake Marisnick clocked a three-run homer Thursday in the Astros’ 12-9 win over the Athletics.

He wasn’t in the Astros’ lineup but subbed in for George Springer, who left after getting hit by a pitch in his first at-bat. Marisnick promptly clubbed a homer off Jesse Hahn as the Astros exploded for eight runs in the second inning. That gives Marisnick a career-high 10 homers including four in the month of June. He could play regularly in center field if Springer misses extended time.
Jun 22 - 7:11 PM

David Paulino yielded seven hits and three runs over 5 1/3 innings Thursday in the Astros’ victory over the Athletics.

He walked two and struck out six. Paulino was cruising until the sixth when he allowed doubles to Khris Davis and Chad Pinder before finally the getting the hook from manager A.J. Hinch. The 107-pitch outing was easily his longest of the year. Paulino is undefeated in five starts but has posted a disappointing 5.04 ERA during that span. He’ll face the A’s again on Wednesday.

George Springer has been diagnosed with a left hand contusion.

His X-rays came back negative. Springer left Thursday's game after being struck by a 92 mph sinker from A's starter Jesse Hahn. The Astros are calling him day-to-day. Springer suffered a similar injury two years ago when he was hit by then-Royals starter Edinson Volquez. Jake Marisnick replaced Springer in center field on Thursday and should start there during his absence.

George Springer left Thursday's game against the A's after taking a pitch off his left hand.

A's starter Jesse Hahn struck Springer with the fifth pitch of the afternoon. The star center fielder looked to be in a good amount of pain as he walked off the field. There should be an update soon from Oakland.
Jun 22 - 3:43 PM

Jose Altuve is getting the day off Thursday afternoon against the Athletics.

Marwin Gonzalez is starting at second base and batting sixth versus Oakland right-hander Jesse Hahn. It's just a routine breather for Altuve.
Jun 22 - 1:19 PM

Mike Fiers yielded three hits and one run over six stellar frames Wednesday in the Astros’ victory over the Athletics.

He struck out five and walked three. Fiers was a little erratic early, hitting a batter and walking two others over his first two innings, but he settled down after that. Oakland’s only run off Fiers came in the seventh inning when Luke Gregerson allowed one of two inherited runners to score. Fiers benefited from strong defense as the Astros were able to turn three double plays. The veteran right-hander is now 4-0 with a 1.72 ERA over his last five starts.
Jun 22 - 1:37 AM

Carlos Correa slugged his 14th home run of the season Wednesday in the Astros’ 5-1 victory over the Athletics.

Correa’s ninth-inning solo blast landed just out of the reach of center fielder Jaycob Brugman. He also singled to center field in the sixth. The 22-year-old has hit a robust .370 over his last seven games.
Jun 22 - 1:25 AM

Jake Marisnick drove in two of Houston’s five runs Wednesday in a win over the A’s.

Marisnick staked the Astros to a 3-0 lead in the sixth by ripping an RBI single off left-hander Sean Manaea. He also plated a run on an eighth-inning sac fly. Marisnick carries minimal fantasy weight despite homering in three of his last six games.
