Abad placed on DL

So with Fernando Rodriguez' return to Houston, the Astros put Fernando Abad on the DL with Suck shoulder tendinitis.

Ed Wade:
"He came in over the weekend complaining of some tightness in his elbow and shoulder, and the elbow resolved itself in short order. "He was very tentative throwing when he went out there in the afternoon today, and [head athletic trainer] Nate [Lucero] felt it would be a couple of days. It was the best thing to do, to put him on the DL and go from there."

Within that article, we read that Jason Bourgeois won't be ready until he completes a minor-league rehab assignment after the All-Star Break for that strained quad.
