Astros' Yordan Alvarez: Re-enters starting nine
Alvarez (hand) will serve as Houston's designated hitter and No. 3 batter in Tuesday's game against the Mets.
Per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, manager Dusty Baker said Alvarez was held out of the lineup for Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Yankees due to lingering soreness in his hand, but his absence always looked to be little more than a routine maintenance day. Baker said Alvarez was available Sunday in a pinch-hitting capacity, and the 25-year-old proceeded to come off the bench and draw a walk. As anticipated, Alvarez experienced no setbacks following his brief cameo Sunday and should be ready for a full slate of starts this week following Monday's team off day.... See More ... See Less

The 24-year-old will temporarily put his bid for American League MVP Award on the back burner Sunday while he hits the bench in what looks to be a routine maintenance day.... See More ... See Less

Alvarez (hand) will serve as Houston's designated hitter and cleanup batter in Tuesday's game against the Mets.
Though manager Dusty Baker was evasive over the weekend when asked about why Alvarez was out of the lineup for Sunday's 4-3 win over the White Sox, the slugger looks like he's good to go for the series opener against the Mets coming out of Monday's off day.
