HOUSTON (AP) _ The Houston Astros placed outfielder Richard Hidalgo on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a right hip strain and recalled outfielder Jason Lane from Triple-A New Orleans.
Lane is hitting .294 with one RBI in 14 games with the Astros this season. He was optioned to New Orleans on Monday when Houston activated Brian Hunter.
