Justin Maxwell is rehabbing and should return to the Houston Astros after the All-Star Break.
It looks like Justin Maxwell's recovery process is going well since being placed on the disabled list last Tuesday with a left ankle injury. At first it appeared Maxwell would need to undergo an athroscopic procedure, but Zachary Levine says he's rehabbing and should return to the team after the All-Star Break.
