Friday night, the Astros announced that starting pitcher Wandy Rodriguez would not make his scheduled start on Saturday. Less than 24 hours later, they have placed him on the disabled list with fluid in his left (throwing) elbow. Jordan Lyles has been called up as a corresponding move and will take the mound Tuesday for Houston (Alyson Footer via Twitter).

The injury comes at a pretty bad time for Rodriguez. While there's never a good time, he's been dealing of late. In his last five starts, Rodriguez is 2-0 with a 1.75 ERA and 26 strikeouts. On the season, he's 3-3 with a 3.41 ERA and 1.33 WHIP and is arguably the Astros' best pitcher.

At this point, there is no further information on how long Rodriguez might be out.

Lyles, 20, is one of the top prospects in the Astros' rather depleted farm system. He was the Astros supplemental first-round pick in 2008 out of high school and is ranked in the top 50 prospects in baseball by several outlets. He's currently 3-3 with a 3.20 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 41 strikeouts in 59 innings at Triple-A Oklahoma City. Keep in mind, those numbers are in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.

Lyles' debut will come in Chicago against the Cubs.
