Houston Astros ace Dallas Keuchel was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Thursday due to neck discomfort.
Instead, Keuchel traveled to Houston on Thursday to have his neck examined. The left-hander missed a start in May due to a pinched nerve in his neck.
Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow told reporters that there is no timetable for Keuchel’s return.
The unbeaten Keuchel arguably has been the top pitcher in the majors this season. The 2015 American League Cy Young Award winner is 9-0 this season and leads the majors in victories, ERA (1.67) and WHIP (0.87).
Houston recalled right-hander Francis Martes from Triple-A Fresno. Martes was 0-2 with a 5.29 ERA in eight starts at Fresno.
