Maxwell on DL, Grossman up

After last night's game in which Justin Maxwell's hand was fractured when he was by a pitch with the bases loaded, scoring Jose Altuve in what would be the game-winning run (the old 15-Day Game Winning RBI), the Astros have called up Robbie Grossman to take his roster spot.

The switch-hitting Grossman - acquired in the Wandy Rodriguez trade with the Pirates - was 9x22 in his last five games, and was hitting .361/.417/.465 in his last ten, for Oklahoma City. He'll be in uniform for this afternoon's game.
