The Houston Astros will place pitcher Lance McCullers on the 10-day disabled list with back discomfort.

McCullers told reporters Monday that he and the Astros felt it was the “right time” for him to return to the DL. The hard-throwing right-hander missed two weeks last month with back discomfort and has struggled in recent outings, posting a 9.64 ERA over his last four starts.

McCullers acknowledged to reporters that he has not been 100 percent of late but said he wanted to continue making his turns in the rotation for the injury-plagued Astros, who had been without starting pitchers Dallas Keuchel, Charlie Morton and Collin McHugh until recently.

McCullers is 7-3 with a 3.92 ERA this season for the first-place Astros.
