Bourn Out 'A Couple Of Days' With Oblique Injury

Astros center fielder Michael Bourn will miss a few days with a strained right oblique that he suffered during Sunday's win over the Cincinnati Reds. Brian McTaggart spoke with Astros manager Brad Mills on the subject.

"He's probably going to have to take a rest at least [Monday] and maybe a couple of days," Astros manager Brad Mills said.

Bourn initially stayed in the game after fouling off a pitch and grimmacing. He later walked to the dugout and came out of the game after fouing off another pitch. Currently, he is hitting .265 with 52 stolen bases and an OPS of .686.

Jason Bourgeois will get the start in center field on Monday in place of Bourn.
