The Houston Astros collected their 11th straight victory on Monday. But not everything was great for the Astros. Houston super utility player Marwin Gonzalez exited the game with what was described as left-hand discomfort.

Houston Chronicle’s Jake Kaplan first reported the info on Monday.

Marwin, 28, said after the game that he had been dealing with the injury since the Orioles series on May 25-27.

The loss of Marwin could have a huge impact on the Astros. The utility man has found another gear at the plate and plays five different positions for the Astros.

Gonzalez could have easily been selected as AL Player of the Month if Correa wasn't selected. Marwin batted .382 (29x76) with 19 runs scored, six doubles, seven home runs, and 22 RBIs in 24 games.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Marwin was continuing to be evaluated and he’ll likely not play in Tuesday game.
