Lyon gets shot in the arm

|
HOUSTON -- Right-hander reliever Brandon Lyon received an injection into his right forearm on Monday to help him combat a rash he's been dealing with over the last few days, but he was available to pitch in the series against the Cubs.

Lyon suffered abrasions to the forearm while diving for an out at first base last week, and then developed a rash from the adhesive on the bandage, manager Brad Mills said.

"They put a bandage on it, and his arm reacted to the bandage," Mills said. "He got a rash, and it was really bothering him. It's a pretty good rash, so he went to the doctor, and the doctor gave him some stuff to calm the rash down.

Lyon (6-4) leads Houston in appearances (45) and holds (17). He has stranded all seven of his inherited runners this season, and owns a 2.82 ERA in his last 39 appearances.
