Player Notes
Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated that Luis Valbuena (toe) could see action in this week's Indians series.

Advice: Said action will not be coming on Tuesday unless it's as a pinch-hitter, as Valbuena is not listed in the starting lineup. He's now missed two in a row as he nurses a sprained left big toe. The Astros will play the Indians through Thursday.

Luis Valbuena (toe) is out again Tuesday against the Indians.

Advice: Valbuena is dealing with a sprained left big toe and will miss his second straight start. He's hopeful that a few days of rest will do the trick. Marwin Gonzalez will fill in at third once again.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch admitted Sunday that Luis Valbuena has been bothered by an injury to the big toe on his left foot.

Advice: Valbuena has been able to play through the injury, but has apparently done so in some degree of pain. The 29-year-old has slugged 19 home runs and driven in 36 runs on the season, despite hitting .203/.286/.438.

Sun, Jul 5 Rotoworld
Luis Valbuena went 2-for-4 with RBI single Saturday against the Red Sox.

Advice: His RBI single in the ninth was the Astros' only offense of the day against Clay Buchholz. Through three months, Valbuena has had one of the strangest seasons to date. While he has 19 home runs and 36 RBI on the year, he's batting just .201 with a .281 on-base percentage. He could be pushed into a part-time role when Jed Lowrie is ready to come off the disabled list.
