Jason Castro ripped a double into the game Friday night, it was easily a double. Unfortunately, Castro needed every bit of time to get to second as Castro pulled up with an apparent injury. Castro existed the game, and later diagnosed with a quad injury.

The Houston Chronicle's Jose de Jesus Ortiz quoted Castro after the game:
"Probably in the third or fourth step after touching first I just felt a grab like in my upper quad," Castro said after the 3-0 loss. "It locked up pretty tight. It's pretty sore right now. I got some treatment on it and we're going to see how it feels tomorrow and how it responds overnight."
No word yet if the Astros are calling Max Stassi.
Astros rookie shortstop Carlos Correa stat out his second game in a row, getting three days off with a tender hamstring. It's more a precautionary measure than anything else from all reports. Correa took batting practice indoors on Friday.
George Springer will be heading out on a rehab assignment with the Corpus Christi Hooks on Saturday. Springer has been out of the lineup since being hit by a pitch on July 2 and suffered multiple displaced fractures on his right wrist.
