Aroldis Chapman tweaked his right hamstring during Tuesday's All-Star game, but said he will be fine for Friday's game.
Chapman got the final two outs for the National League, one of which required him to cover first resulting in him tweaking his already sore hammy. Chapman said. Ive been pitching through it for a while. As long as I dont have to run, it feels good to pitch.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
