Yu Darvish gave up one run, five hits, three walks and punched out 12 over 6.2 innings in the 5-1 win over the Blue Jays Friday night.
The win was his first in three starts as he improved to 9-5 on the season. The 12 strikeouts tied his season high and was the 26th time in his career, sixth this season, that he registered 10 or more strikeouts in a game. Darvish's next start will be on Wednesday in New York against the Yankees.rnrnANALYST: 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
