The Houston Astros placed right-handed reliever Bryan Abreu on the 10-day injured list Sunday.

The move is retroactive to Saturday, when Abreu strained his left calf while shagging balls at batting practice.

The team also optioned right-hander Brandon Bielak to Triple-A Sugar Land and recalled right-handers Enoli Paredes and Nivaldo Rodriguez to fill the open roster spots.

Abreu, 24, has gone 2-3 with a 4.21 ERA and one save in 21 relief appearances this season.

Bielak, 25, is 2-2 with a 3.97 ERA in 13 relief outings.
