HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - The Astros placed All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve on the bereavement list Tuesday following the death of his grandmother.  Players can take bereavement leave for a minimum of three days and a maximum of seven.

Altuve, 23, suffered a partial dislocation of his jaw in Monday night’s game in Detroit and left in the second inning.  Altuve collided with right fielder Jimmy Paredes but was hoping to play Tuesday before being placed on the bereavement list.

The Astros club has recalled infielder Jake Elmore from Triple A Oklahoma City to take the Altuve’s spot on the active roster.  Elmore, who has played 31 games at second base, was batting .300 with 10 doubles, 15 RBIs and eight stolen bases for OKC.  Elmore has a .381 on-base percentage in 36 games for the RedHawks this season.  He was acquired by Houston off of waivers from Arizona on November 1, 2012.
