HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Houston Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel has been added to the disabled list.
The Astros announced on Saturday that the pitcher has a pinched nerve in his neck.
Keuchel, who is off to a 7-0 start this season, is expected to miss only one start. This is his first trip to the DL in his major league career.
He was scheduled to pitch Monday.
Left-hander Ashur Tolliver from Triple-A Fresno has been recalled to take Keuchel's spot on the roster.
