Houston Astros INF Luis Valbuena (hamstring) is not expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list, although his strained right hamstring will keep him sidelined until Friday, July 29. However, manager A.J. Hinch hinted that Valbuena could be held out of the lineup until Saturday, July 30, because the club will face a left-handed pitcher Friday.
