Injury Updates; Notes on Astros County

Friends, I start The New Job today, so in the interest of my employment I probably won't be posting as much between the hours of 8am-5pm. Look for posts early in the morning and in the evening.

Updates on injuries:
Backe's front foot slipped off the mound, thus straining his ribcage.

Maysonet's & Michaels' injuries may not be as serious as initially feared:
“(The Trainers) sounded pretty optimistic about Maysonet, and Michaels wasn’t as bad as originally thought,” Cooper said. “We thought it might be more of a dehydration (problem with Michaels) and they’re going to check him out. We can’t say that for sure, but hopefully.”

Drew Sutton's hamstring injury is almost 100% and he made his first start yesterday.

And newest Astro Neal Musser will pitch tonight versus Washington
