Jed Lowrie: DL Decision on Tap Wednesday Staff

Update: The Astros will decide Wednesday whether or not to place Lowrie (thumb) on the disabled list, the Astros Senior Director of Social Media Alyson Footer reports.

Recommendation: Lowrie is still listed as day-to-day after injuring his thumb Wednesday against Miami. An MRI revealed no ligament damage to Lowrie's thumb, but if the team decides to place him on the DL, Matt Downs could start the year as Houston's shortstop.
