DeShields has a Blum Elbow

Delino DeShields has been suffering from elbow soreness, which has limited his move to 2B, says Zach Levine.

DeShields is expected to be recovered by the end of the month and by the end of Instructional League in Florida, where he is making the transition from the outfield. But the Astros want to be cautious, and he is going to be held out of throwing.

He has not been totally shut down, though, as he works to get comfortable with his footwork and plays some designated hitter in Instructional League games.
