Rasmus is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox.

With George Springer (wrist) landing on the DL a few days earlier, Rasmus is likely ticketed for regular at-bats in the outfield, but he'll get a day off Sunday. Prior to going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in Saturday's game, Rasmus had missed the Astros' previous six games with a skin infection, so it's possible the team just doesn't want to overextend him to quickly after a lengthy absence.

Rasmus will sit for a second straight game due to the condition, affording Domingo Santana some additional at-bats. It's not clear if Rasmus will be at risk of landing on the disabled list while he continues to receive treatment for the infection, but his status for Monday's series opener against the Royals appears in some peril.

Rasmus was initially slated to play center field on Saturday, but a skin infection knocked him out of the lineup less than two hours before first pitch. George Springer will slide over to center field Saturday and Domingo Santana will enter the fold in right field.
