Jose Altuve (33, Houston Astros) could return before August at the earliest after suffering a side injury in pregame batting practice카지노사이트.
Altuve, who has been on the 10-day disabled list with a side injury, has been given a timetable for his return, according to The Athletic.
Houston general manager Dana Brown was quoted by the outlet as saying that Altuve is recovering at a rapid pace. However, it won’t be right after the All-Star break.
The current expectation is later this month, or early August if his rehab is delayed. Altuve is the key to Houston’s power. It’s good to see him back in a more complete state.
Previously, Altuve missed two consecutive games after feeling pain in his left flank during pregame batting practice on the 4th, and was eventually placed on the disabled list on the 7th.
This is a huge disappointment. He was sidelined for a while with a fractured right thumb after being hit in the hand by a pitch during the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in March.
As a result, Altuve played just 32 games in the first half of the season. This will be the fewest games Altuve has played since his rookie season.
Houston went 50-41 for a .549 winning percentage in the first half, good for second place in the American League West. Not as good as expected, but still good enough to make the postseason.
It would be nice to see Altuve, a key part of the batting order, return to full health. It will be interesting to see if Altuve is back to his old self when he returns later this month or in August.
