Nimmo, who was injured on Thursday, was not in the lineup Friday but could play on Saturday. … Reliever Bobby Wahl was placed on the DL with a right hamstring strain and LHP Daniel Zamora was recalled from Double-A Binghamton. Zamora made his major league debut, pitching 1 1/3 scoreless innings with two strikeouts.UP NEXTMets ace Jacob deGrom (7-7, major league-best 1.81 ERA) opposes RHP Jake Arrieta (9-7, 3.33) in the fourth game of the five-game set on Saturday afternoon. DeGrom is 6-1 with a 2.45 ERA in 13 career starts against the Phillies and struck out seven in eight shutout innings of a 3-0 win on July 11. Arrieta is 2-2 with a 1.99 ERA in eight career starts vs. the Mets. The Houston Astros placed starting pitcher Charlie Morton on the 10-day disabled list with a shoulder issue, while reliever Chris Devenski was activated Bill Melton Jersey , according to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com.The 34-year-old Morton is in the midst of a career season, having been named to his first All-Star Game this year. Morton is 13-3 with a 3.14 ERA and has 185 strikeouts in 152 innings pitched, and he's certainly in the running for his first American League Cy Young Award.Entering play on Wednesday, Houston was 1.5 games up on the Oakland Athletics for the AL West lead. The defending World Champions will cruise to another postseason berth, but the only question is if they'll be forced to play in the single elimination Wild Card game.advertising Credit: Troy Taormina-USA TODAY SportsLosing Morton for the time being hurts the Astros, but they still own baseball's best rotation and are built to get by without him. Justin Verlander (13-8 with a 2.72 ERA), Gerrit Cole (12-5 with a 2.85 ERA), Dallas Keuchel (10-10 with a 3.54 ERA), and Lance McCullers Jr. (10-6, 3.93 ERA) http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-robin-ventura-jersey , are all enjoying All-Star-like seasons. Houston will be fine without Morton for the time being.Morton and Keuchel are both set to hit the free agent market in the winter, and the former has picked the perfect time to pitch a career season. With a strong showing in the postseason, Morton will certainly set himself up to be one of the highest-paid pitchers in baseball during the winter.advertisingThe Astros just need to hope that Morton's shoulder injury won't last long-term, and that he'll be at full health in the postseason. The AL is loaded with elite teams, but none of them (Oakland, Boston, Cleveland or New York), have the rotation depth and talent that the Astros boast.A healthy Morton makes the Astros that much more dangerous, and it would put them in position to successfully defend that World Series.NEXT: PLAYERS THESE MLB TEAMS SHOULD HAVE NEVER TRADED
