Astros sending ace Verlander out to sweep Red Sox

With Astros outfielder George Springer placed on the 10-day injured list with a Grade-2 left hamstring strain, Houston recalled outfielder Derek Fisher from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday, a decision that required some explanation given the status of two higher-profiled prospects.

Kyle Tucker, the Astros' second-ranked prospect overall, was slashing .266/.345/.614 with 14 home runs and 33 RBIs. Yordan Alvarez has been arguably the top overall hitter in the minors this season with a slash line of .374/.460/.816 with 19 homers and 57 RBIs. Yet the Astros envision filling the void left by Springer with a reserve, a role Fisher has managed previously.

"Whoever we're bringing up is probably going to be a substitute and play occasionally and be more of a fourth or fifth outfielder in the mix with (Tony) Kemp," Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said prior to a 4-3 win over Boston Saturday. "That's the playing time that's out there."
