So Kyle Weiland didn't have a good day

Zachary Levine just tweeted some bad news:

Astros RHP Kyle Weiland had infection in shoulder and had arthroscopic surgery today. Still awaiting implications for length of absence.

So that's not good. We know the Astros won't need a 5th starter until May 8, but I seriously doubt Weiland will be back in a week after arthroscopic surgery. We've fired off a missive to Will Carroll, and will update accordingly. Maybe Jordan Lyles will be on his way back to Houston soon.

Also, Jordan Schafer is out with a left oblique strain, so Justin Maxwell will start at CF tonight, and Jose Altuve will lead off.
