Found July 27, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Houston Astros have placed outfielder J.D. Martinez on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left wrist, according to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com. To replace Martinez on the roster, Houston has recalled outfielder Robbie Grossman from Triple-A. Martinez suffered his wrist injury during last night’s contest against the Toronto Blue Jays while sliding into second base in the sixth inning. He was attempting to break up a double play during the slide, and he’ll now unfortunately be hitting the shelf for at least two weeks. He said the “turf is really hard,” noting that he believes he suffered the sprain during the slide. It’s especially poor timing for Martinez, who was hitting .319 since July 5. On the year, the 25-year-old has hit .256/.280/.392 with 16 doubles and seven home runs over 287 plate appearances. Grossman made his major-league debut for the Astros earlier this season prior to being sent back down to Triple-A. Over 131 plate appearances for Houston, the 23-year-old has hit .198/.310/.243 with five doubles. During his time in Triple-A, he’s hit .281/.396/.364.
