The Astros put right-handed reliever Geoff Geary on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of a strained right groin. Geary, who has not allowed a run in 10 consecutive appearances since April 26, left Thursday's game at San Francisco because of the injury. Geary is 1-1 with a 1.47 ERA in 19 appearances.

Fernando Nieve was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock. The right-hander was 1-3 with a 5.08 ERA in nine games (eight starts).
