On Monday, Altuve left the eighth inning of Houston’s 8-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels after injuring his hamstring running to first base. Altuve has six hits in 36 at-bats for three RBI, one home run, and two runs this season. He’s off to a slow start, hitting .167, with a .258 OBP, and a .518 OPS.
After the injury, Astros’ manager Dusty Baker said Altuve should be considered day-to-day. Right now, it seems that these tests are precautionary, but it’s a situation to watch going forward. However, it should be somewhat encouraging that Altuve didn’t immediately land on the injured list.
