The Houston Astros have placed catcher Brian McCann on the 10-day disabled list with right knee soreness.

McCann played yesterday but he sat out on Friday and Saturday. He’s 0-for-his-last-13, so something’s not right. In the meantime, the Astros are calling up Tim Federowicz to take McCann’s place on the roster. Figure that Max Stassi will see most of the playing time behind the plate in McCann’s absence. Stassi has hit well in limited playing time, with a line of .300/.371/.525 and four homers in 89 plate appearances.
