Jed Lowrie Injury: Astros Place Injured Shortstop On Disabled List

The Houston Astros placed injured shortstop Jed Lowrie on the disabled list after he suffered ankle and knee injuries on Saturday night. Lowrie was injured when Gregor Blanco slid hard into his extended leg on a double-play attempt. Lowrie had to be helped from the field and was on crutches following the game. The Astros say that Lowrie has a sprained ankle and a damaged nerve in the leg.

To replace Lowrie on the roster, Houston activated shortstop Marwin Gonzalez from the disabled list. Gonzalez got the start in place of Lowrie on Sunday.

The Astros also placed Jason Castro on the disabled list with a sore leg. The move is retroactive to July 8 and Houston called up Carlos Corporan from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
