  • Astros' Jose Altuve: Hitless in season debut

  • Astros' Jose Altuve: Batting leadoff in return

    Altuve is starting at second base and batting leadoff for the Astros in his season debut Friday against the Athletics, Mark Berman of FOX 26 reports.

    We're exactly two months removed from Altuve suffering a fractured right thumb during World Baseball Classic play. He went just 2-for-22 during a rehab assignment and might be eased back into action with extra days off, but Altuve nonetheless should be re-inserted into fantasy lineups in most formats.

  • Astros' Jose Altuve: Making season debut Friday

    Altuve was activated from the 10-day injured list by the Astros on Friday.

    Altuve appeared to still be searching for his timing while on his rehab assignment, as he went just 2-for-22 (both singles) in five games with Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Sugar Land. However, the most important thing is his surgically repaired right thumb is a non-issue and he feels ready to rejoin his teammates. It's possible Altuve will receive some extra days off initially as he eases back into things, but fantasy managers certainly want to get him back into their lineups.

  • Astros' Jose Altuve: Could return Friday

    Altuve (thumb) will appear in a rehab game Wednesday for Double-A Christi before potentially being reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to Houston's game Friday versus Oakland, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    Altuve has struggled thus far in his rehab stint with a .056 average over 18 at-bats, but the reps are far more important than the results at this stage. Even if the 33-year-old needs an extra couple of days, he looks like he's on pace to rejoin the Houston lineup for his season debut at some point over the weekend. Mauricio Dubon has been serving as the primary replacement at second base for Altuve this season and would presumably move into a utility role once Altuve is activated.

  • Astros' Jose Altuve: Rehab moving to Texas League

    Altuve (thumb) will move his rehab assignment to Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Michael Connor of SportsTalk 790 Houston reports.

    Altuve has just two hits in his 13 at-bats in his rehab assignment thus far, but his movement to Double-A has everything to do with proximity and weather. The 33-year-old infielder will likely need a few more games before he's ready, and he could return from the 10-day injured list to make his season debut for the Astros as soon as this weekend's series with the Athletics.
