Justin Maxwell Returns to Disabled List; Astros Call Up Paredes

Bob Levey

Maxwell sent to 7-Day Disabled List after concussion-related symptoms return. Jimmy Paredes has been called up to replace him.

Justin Maxwell will return to the disabled list for a second time this season. This time it is for concussion-related symptoms. General Manager Jeff Luhnow announced today, the Astros outfielder will be placed on the 7-Day Disabled List.

Maxwell attempted to make a diving catch on Tuesday (6/25) night vs. St. Louis, which resulted in him crashing into Minute Maid Park's outfield grass. Maxwell left the game and was later diagnosed with a mild concussion. Outside of pitch-running for Brett Wallace on Friday vs. the Angels, Maxwell has not started in a game since the concussion.

Jimmy Paredes has been recalled by the Astros to fill in for Maxwell. This will be Paredes' second stint with the Astros. Paredes was hitting .237 over his last ten starts in Triple A Oklahoma City with four doubles, two homers and seven RBI with a .293 on-base pct. and a .500 slugging pct. (.793 OPS). Paredes was originally in the lineup today, but has since been scratched.
