The Houston Astros have placed struggling outfielder Carlos Gomez on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised left rib cage.

According to multiple reports, Gomez hurt himself diving for a ball in Boston last Friday and it hasn't improved since.

Over a 10-year stretch in the majors, Gomez is off to the worst start of his career. In 34 games, Gomez is batting an abysmal .182/.238/.248 and has failed to hit a home run or a triple this season.

On Monday, Gomez opened up about his struggles this season on both offense and defense.

"What can I do? I don't have anything to say," he said. "I've been playing brutal. In everything - defensively, offensively. I'm not playing good. Just take it like a man and continue to work. That's the only thing I can do. It has to turn around."

In a few countermoves, the Astros designated righty Asher Wojciechowski for assignment, and promoted prospect Colin Moran while recalling Evan Gattis.
