Jose Valverde hopes 48 hours of sensual massage will help

So Valverde is out for at least two more days...

"It'll take a couple more days. I'm getting massages and ice right now for it. That's all."

LaHawk will take over the 9th inning role for the Astros. And I'm okay with this, especially since we're talking about two games - if we are only talking about two games - against the Reds. So far this season, Reds hitters are 1x7 against LaHawk. And the two games in which LaHawk has pitched in the 9th has resulted in a similar 1x7 rate.
