Astros have injuries to deal with as they face White Sox

Just when things were starting to appear rosy for the Astros, injury concerns have crept into the picture as Houston returns to Minute Maid Park, set for its longest homestand of the season.

With All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve already on the 10-day injured list with a hamstring strain, the Astros lost utility infielder/outfielder Aledmys Diaz and outfielder George Springer to injury in Boston while claiming their three-game weekend series. Diaz, like Altuve, was sidelined by hamstring discomfort while Springer departed in the fifth inning of the Astros' 4-3 loss Sunday with lower-back stiffness. Both Diaz and Springer are listed as day-to-day.

The Astros, who had their season-high-tying 10-game winning streak snapped with the setback, will open a 10-game homestand Monday against the Chicago White Sox.
