HOUSTON -- Houston first baseman/designated hitter Carlos Pena will miss the next two games due to a death in his family.

Astros manager Bo Porter says that Pena's nephew drowned in the Dominican Republic and Pena was travelling there to be with his family.

He will not be placed on the bereavement list, and the team expects him back for Tuesday night's game against Tampa Bay.

Also Sunday, the Astros placed outfielder Justin Maxwell on the seven-day disabled list because of concussion-related symptoms. He suffered a concussion on Tuesday night and passed the concussion tests the next day. He then experienced a slight headache after pinch-running in Friday night's game and the team decided to place him on the list as a precaution.

Houston recalled outfielder Jimmy Paredes from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take his roster spot.
