"Don't expect to see right-hander Lance McCullers back on mound", says manager
The Astros began play Monday with a four-game lead over the Oakland Athletics in the American League West Division.
McCullers, who is 10-6 with a 3.93 ERA in 22 starts, left Saturday's game after only four innings with the team has called a right forearm strain.
McCullers' injury is also the latest of several prominent Astros to go on the DL, although the others, infielders Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, catcher Brian McCann, and on Monday, outfielder George Springer, are expected back on the active roster before September.
