Alvarez (soreness) isn't starting Thursday's game against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Alvarez was replaced in the eighth inning of Wednesday's win over the Angels due to soreness, and he'll get a day to rest in Thursday's series finale. Whether he's available off the bench remains to be seen, but Kyle Tucker will serve as the designated hitter while Jose Siri starts in right field.
