CLEVELAND -- Having matched the franchise record for best 20-game start in club history, the injured and sore Houston Astros will try to add to their historic run Wednesday at Progressive Field in the second game of a three-game series with the Cleveland Indians.
The biggest question surrounding the Astros is who will play in the outfield. Prior to the Tuesday game, the Astros placed outfielder Jake Marisnick on the seven-day concussion disabled list.
To replace Marisnick on the roster, the Astros recalled outfielder Teoscar Hernandez from Triple-A Fresno. Hernandez entered Tuesday's game in the eighth inning as a defensive replacement in right field. Two batters later, he left the game on a cart. Hernandez sustained a left knee contusion due to a jarring collision with second baseman Jose Altuve as the two players converged on a fly ball hit by Yan Gomes.
