 HOUSTON (AP) -Astros center fielder Hunter Pence, one of the leading candidates for National League Rookie of the Year, was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of an injured wrist.
Pence hurt the wrist sliding into second base in the fourth inning Sunday at Pittsburgh. General manager Tim Purpura said Pence is expected to miss four-to-six weeks.
``He came in today with the wrist swollen and obviously very sore, so we had an MRI done and we got the results right before the game,'' Purpura said. ``It is very unfortunate to lose a young player who has had such an impact on this club to this point.''
Pence said the wrist didn't feel right when he woke up this morning.
``It didn't feel the way I wanted it to. It was disappointing,'' he said. ``Things happen and you have just got to deal with them and move on. Now I've just got to focus on what I can do to get better as fast as I can.''
Pence leads all Major League rookies in extra-base hits with 43, doubles (25), triples (6) and total bases (176). He leads NL rookies with 102 hits, 45 RBIs and 31 multi-hit games. His .330 average is second among NL rookies and eighth overall in the league.
The team recalled Jason Lane from Triple-A Round Rock to take Pence's place on the roster. Lane hit .308 with eight home runs for the Express this season. In 36 games with the Astros, he hit .165 with four homers and 10 RBI.
