Wandy Rodriguez to return next Monday, with Jordan Lyles likely going back to minors

Wandy Rodriguez

Wandy Rodriguez threw 60 pitches in a bullpen session yesterday and Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros now expect him to come off the disabled list when eligible next Monday.

He’ll first have to avoid a setback with his elbow injury while making a rehab start Wednesday at Double-A, but Levine writes that he’ll likely be limited to 50-60 pitches in that outing.

Rodriguez said after the bullpen session that he “felt great” and “didn’t have any problem.”

Top prospect Jordan Lyles took Rodriguez’s spot in the rotation and pitched well in his debut, but the 20-year-old former first-round pick struggled yesterday versus the Padres and seems likely to be sent back down when Rodriguez returns.

    I feel so bad for any post about the Astros. They just sit here with no comments.

    So, here you go Astros-related post. Enjoy.
