Astros place OF Jason Michaels on DL

The Houston Astros placed outfielder Jason Michaels on the 15-day disabled list with a subluxation of his left shoulder.

The move, which is retroactive to April 25, was made on Tuesday and the team recalled outfielder Brian Bogusevic from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take his roster spot.

Michaels suffered the injury diving on a Prince Fielder triple in the third inning of Sunday's game against Milwaukee. He is batting just .111 with two walks over 11 games this season.

Bogusevic made his MLB debut with the Astros last season and over 19 games he batted .179 with three RBI.
