HOUSTON -- Astros left fielder Carlos Lee is scheduled to rejoin the team on Monday afternoon in Cincinnati after staying in Houston a day before to undergo tests after a rib injury.

Lee bruised his ribs in the seventh inning of Houston's 5-0 win over Milwaukee on Sunday when teammate Angel Sanchez slid knee-first into his ribs while the two were going for Mark Kotsay's pop-fly double.

Lee was carted off the field and taken to a hospital where he underwent tests. X-rays and a CT scan both came back normal and Lee is listed as day-to-day.

The Astros were off on Monday after a forecast of steady rain forced the postponement of their scheduled Monday night game against the Reds. They are to make up the game on Thursday afternoon.
