Quintero on 15-day DL
HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Astros placed catcher Humberto Quintero on the 15-day disabled list Saturday because of a strained right shoulder.

Quintero was injured in a collision with Milwaukee's Mike Cameron on Friday night. Quintero took a throw from right fielder Hunter Pence in the fourth inning and blocked the plate as Cameron barreled into the catcher. Quintero held onto the ball but had to leave the game.

The Astros recalled catcher J.R. Towles from Triple-A Round Rock to fill in for Quintero. Towles is hitting .344 in 11 games with one home run and three RBIs.
