World news – US – Astros activate All-Star 2B Jose Altuve from injured list


Ahead of Tuesday’s series opener against interstate foes the Texas Rangers, the Houston Astros activated All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve from the injured list. Altuve injured his right knee while sliding into third base during a game against the Rangers on Sept. 3 and hasn’t played since. It was originally hoped the six-time All-Star and 2017 American League Most Valuable Player wouldn’t require a stint on IL.Houston lost nine of 11 without Altuve. In a corresponding roster move, Houston optioned right-handed pitcher Humberto Castellanos to the club’s alternate training site. Altuve, 30, is batting .224 with three home runs, 12 RBI, five doubles, and a .606 OPS in 35 games this summer. 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink.
