Guzman activated, Downs to DL

The Astros activated infielder/outfielder Jesus Guzman from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and placed left-handed reliever Darin Downs on the DL with a right oblique strain. The Downs move is retroactive to Friday.

Guzman, who was out with back spasms, went 8-for-13 with three doubles and five RBIs in a rehab stint with Triple-A Oklahoma City. In 36 games with the Astros this year, he’s hitting .200 with two homers and eight RBIs.

Downs threw one-third of an inning Thursday in Boston, giving up a run. He’s 2-1 with a 4.31 ERA in 40 games with the Astros this year.

Meanwhile, outfielder Alex Presley, who’s been on the disabled list since straining his oblique on July 8, rejoined the team in New York, but hasn’t been activated. He was on a rehab assignment at rookie-league Tri-City and suffered a setback on Saturday.

Astros pitcher Jesse Crain, who’s been on the disabled list all season, also met the team in New York. A timetable on his return isn’t known.


Brian, great to see the changes, so here you are in New York, so just a few more days, then back to big Texas, looks like the reunion of several of the ball players and excited about getting back with the gang !!!!         Ralph
