The Houston Astros have been solid this season, boasting a 27-23 record. But they're currently 2.5 games behind the Oakland Athletics in the AL Central. And their race for the division crown just got a bit tougher, as outfielder Michael Brantley has been placed on the 10-day Injured List with a hamstring issue.

Michael Brantley Injury Update

It doesn't sound like it's particularly serious, so he should be able to get back on the field relatively soon.

Still, Brantley has been tremendous this season, so he's not someone Houston can really afford to lose for too long. The 34-year-old is slashing .305/.346/.455 with 3 home runs 15 RBI and 24 runs scored.

Hopefully the four-time All-Star can get back on the diamond soon.
