Carlos Lee Injury Update: Sprained Ankle Leaves Lee Day-To-Day

On Friday night, Carlos Lee was forced to exit Houston's game against the Cincinnati Reds in the first inning because of a sprained left ankle. Luckily for Lee and the Astros, X-rays on Lee's ankle were negative, and Houston manager Brad Mills only expects Lee to miss two games.

Per Fox Sports Houston:

Astros first baseman Carlos Lee left in the first inning because of a sprained left ankle. X-rays were negative, but Mills expects Lee to miss two games.

"I knew I hurt it pretty good," Lee said. "It takes a lot to get me out of a game. This was one of those games.

Lee suffered the injury in the first inning while attempting to dig out Chris Johnson's low throw to first base in the first inning. So far on the season, Lee is hitting .273/.349/.390 with two home runs and 13 runs batted in. Hopefully for the Astros, Lee is unaffected by the injury when he returns to the starting lineup.
