Rudy Owens is getting the call to start in tonight's game against the Mariners in Seattle after Brad Peacock was scratched for forearm soreness.
Based on what manager Bo Porter is saying, this is a precautionary measure for Peacock:
Astros manager Bo Porter said Peacock is NOT a DL situation, hopes he'll make a start in five days. http://t.co/0cxXBe0rVl— Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) May 23, 2014
