Astros Place Closer On Injured List

The Houston Astros will be without their closer for at least a little while, as Ryan Pressly has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to right knee inflammation.  

The Astros will be hoping that Pressly is able to return immediately after this stint on the IL is over, as he is one of their most reliable relievers. The 33-year-old has been off to a pretty solid start this campaign, as he has three saves in four appearances. With that, he sports a 2.70 ERA.

At this juncture of the campaign, the Astros have a 5-3 record and first in the AL West. It isn't too surprising to see that they are once again having themselves a very good start to the season. Yet, if they want to keep winning close games, they will need Pressly to close them out. Thus, here's to hoping that the veteran is able to return very soon.
