Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Houston Astros have placed second baseman
Jose Altuve on the bereavement list following the death of his grandmother.
Altuve can remain on the bereavement list for a minimum of three days and a
maximum of seven days. He will miss at least the remainder of this week's
series against the Detroit Tigers.
The All-Star second baseman is hitting a club-best .333 with two homers and 18
runs batted in. He suffered a partially dislocated jaw during Monday's game
against Detroit after colliding with outfielder Jimmy Paredes, but wasn't
expected to miss any games.
Houston recalled infielder Jake Elmore from Triple-A Oklahoma City to fill the
roster spot. Elmore was hitting .300 in 36 games for the RedHawks.
