In other injury news, designated hitter Franmil Reyes was activated Friday after being out with a strained oblique. He was in the lineup and batting fourth against Houston.

José Ramírez was a late scratch because of a sore left elbow and Eddie Rosario was out with right abdominal tightness.

The Indians are still without their top three starting pitchers: Shane Bieber, Aaron Civale and Zach Plesac.
