Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Houston Astros placed rookie outfielder George Springer on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left quad on Wednesday.

Springer last played on Saturday and has missed the last two games with the quad injury and right knee discomfort.

The 24-year-old, who was selected 11th overall by Houston in the 2011 amateur draft, has hit .231 with 20 home runs and 51 RBI.

Springer ranks second in both home runs and RBI among rookies, trailing White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu in both categories.

Houston recalled infielder Marc Krauss from Triple-A Oklahoma for Wednesday's game against Oakland.

Krauss has hit .173 with four home runs and 14 RBI in 39 games this season for the Astros.
