  • Astros' Jose Altuve: Walking under own power

    Altuve (knee) is walking with a hinged brace on his knee under his own power, without any help from crutches, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    That minimal progress from Altuve is good, though he hasn't begun the more substantive part of his rehab yet. He's still optimistic that he'll be ready for spring training.

  • Astros' Carlos Correa: Undergoes nasal surgery

    Correa (nose) underwent surgery to repair a deviated septum Monday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    Correa acknowledged that he was having issues breathing on the diamond during games this past year, so he elected to go the surgical route in order to correct this problem before the 2019 campaign. On the flip side, the shortstop stated that he doesn't expect to require back surgery this offseason after battling a back injury dating back to late June. Across 110 games this past year, he slashed .239/.323/.405 and will benefit from a few months of rest to get back to 100 percent.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Out for season following Tommy John surgery

    McCullers underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday and will miss the entire 2019 season, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    This is a brutal blow for McCullers and the Astros. The southpaw dealt with a forearm/elbow issue for the final two months of the 2018 campaign, and surgery was ultimately deemed necessary following further evaluation. He'll now begin a long recovery process that will keep him from pitching competitively until at least 2020. McCullers posted a 3.86 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 142:50 K:BB across 128.1 innings in 2018.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Surgery not ruled out

    General manager Jeff Luhnow said Monday that McCullers could require surgery to address a lingering elbow injury, which would sideline the right-hander for the entire 2019 season, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Shortly after the Astros were eliminated from the postseason, manager A.J. Hinch hinted that McCullers could miss a large chunk of the 2019 campaign with the elbow issue, so Luhnow's comments only further cloud the 25-year-old's forecast. Luhnow added that McCullers is expected to receive further consultations from doctors in the near future, so more clarity on his situation should come later in the offseason. At least for the time being, McCullers doesn't profile as much more than a late-round dart for early drafters, given his sketchy health outlook.

  • Astros' Chris Herrmann: Claimed off waivers

    Herrmann was claimed off waivers by Houston on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Herrmann played in just 36 big-league games for the Mariners this past year after battling a couple injuries and spending some time at the Triple-A level. He wound up slashing .237/.322/.421 with two home runs and seven RBI, and will provide the Astros with veteran experience as a reserve backstop.
