The Astros placed starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi on the 15-day injured list with what they’re calling “lower leg discomfort” before Tuesday’s game against the Boston Red Sox. The Astros activated righthanded pitcher Seth Martinez to take Odorizzi’s spot on the roster.
Odorizzi collapsed with a leg injury when he turned to run and cover first base of Monday’s loss to the Red Sox. The 33-year-old was on the ground for nearly 10 minutes before being put on a stretcher and taken off the field. Odorizzi had an MRI on Tuesday, but the Astros have yet to release the results of the scan.
