The Astros called up their second player from Triple-A Fresno in as many days Wednesday, summoning Tony Kemp to replace outfielder Teoscar Hernandez, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list. Hernandez had been called up Tuesday and was promptly injured in a 4-2 win over the Indians.

In the finale of a three-game set between two of the American League's top teams, Indians ace Corey Kluber will face off against Astros right-hander Mike Fiers on Thursday at Progressive Field.
In a matchup of two of the American League's top clubs, Dallas Keuchel was once again on top of his game. The Houston lefty continued his strong start to the season, stifling the Indians in a 4-2 victory on Tuesday night at Progressive Field.

Was Reddick wearing Spider-Man undershirt?
The Indians tried to counter the Dallas Keuchel phenomenon on Tuesday night with that rarest of results -- the fly ball.
Astros outfielder George Springer was out of the starting lineup for a second consecutive game on Tuesday due to left hamstring discomfort, but he was forced into action in the eighth inning of his club's 4-2 win over the Indians when newly recalled outfielder Teoscar Hernandez and All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve exited upon colliding in the outfield.
The Astros placed outfielder Jake Marisnick on the seven-day disabled list prior to Tuesday's game against the Indians due to a mild concussion he sustained while running into the outfield wall to make a catch against the Rays on Sunday in St. Petersburg. Outfielder Teoscar Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Fresno to replace Marisnick, who is eligible to be activated on May 1.
It's nearly as common a Spring Training refrain as the ubiquitous "best shape of my life," though it usually starts being uttered a couple of weeks later.
Unlike former Cubs catcher David Ross, who earned the moniker "Grandpa Rossy" in 2016 from his teammates for being the oldest regular contributor on the club at age 39, outfielder Carlos Beltran has yet to be tagged with an affectionate nickname, even though he's the Astros' first 40-year-old player since 42-year-old Doug Brocail in 2009.
Astros starter Joe Musgrove looked like he was in for a disastrous day against the Rays before he even recorded his first out.
Veteran Astros catcher Brian McCann opened Houston's three-game series Friday against the Rays by scoring what turned out to be the winning run. On Sunday, he came through again -- this time with the bat.

They finished the week with another win on the road and extended their division lead, so it's no secret that the loaded Astros are off to a great start as one of the best teams in baseball in the early part of 2017. As is often the case in today's game, a terrific bullpen is a large part of the reason.
It seems like every time he takes the mound, Kolby Allard keeps showing why the Braves drafted him No. 14 overall two years ago. Allard is among Sunday's top prospect performers.
Astros manager A.J. Hinch has asked a lot out of his bullpen this season. Heading into Sunday's series finale against the Rays, Houston relievers have thrown 63 2/3 innings in 2017, second-most in the American League behind the Angels.
The Rays rallied for four runs in the sixth inning to snap the Astros' three-game winning streak in a 6-3 victory at Tropicana Field.
After scuffling through his last few games at the plate, Astros second baseman Jose Altuve was looking for something to kickstart his bat.
Clint Frazier has had Yankees fans abuzz since New York traded for him last July, but he hadn't gotten off to the hottest start to the 2017 season at the plate. As of Saturday, that looks like it might be changing.
It has been the bottom of the Astros' lineup that has been key to enabling the team at times, including Friday night.
The Rays brought the big bats to open their three-game series against the Astros on Friday night, but in the end, Houston made the little things matter the most.
One of these days, Astros designated hitter Carlos Beltran is going to act his age. It doesn't look like that is going to be happening any time soon though.
Astros manager A.J. Hinch called relief pitcher Chris Devenski "his Superman" before Houston's series opener against the Rays on Friday.
Lance McCullers Jr. threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings, striking out eight batters, and was backed by solo homers from Carlos Beltran and Jake Marisnick to send the Astros to a series win with a 2-1 victory over the Angels on Thursday afternoon at Minute Maid Park.
Jake Marisnick has played in all but two of the Astros games this season, though much of his action has been as a defensive replacement. One of the premier defensive outfielders in baseball, Marisnick worked hard in the offseason and spring to have the bat to match.
Here's why the Astros might just be the best team in the American League West, if not the AL overall: Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers Jr.
Make it three straight scoreless starts for Class A Advanced Buies Creek's Franklin Perez.
