Astros manager Brad Mills told Brian McTaggart of MLB.com that outfielder Jordan Schafer is out until Wednesday because of a strained leg muscle.

Schafer suffered the injury Saturday after running into teammate Justin Maxwell while trying to run down a David Murphy line drive. The ball got past both of them and resulted in an inside-the-park home run.

Schafer, 25, was 0-for-1 with a strikeout before exiting Saturday’s game, a 6-5 win over Texas.

He’s hitting .251/.331/.341 with two homers, 11 RBI and 13 steals in 38 games this season. Maxwell is playing center field in Sunday’s series finale against the Rangers. Brian Bogusevic is starting in right.

    Isn’t this the second time he’s been injured this year? Guy obviously misses his (medicinal) pot.
