Astros' Yordan Alvarez To Return Tomorrow

The Houston Astros should have their star hitter, Yordan Alvarez, back in the lineup for tomorrow’s day-night doubleheader against the New York Yankees. According to Adam Wexler of SportsTalk 790 in Houston, Astros General Manager James Click gave the good news for ‘Stros fans this morning.

Alvarez was selected to this year’s American League All-Star team but missed the festivities because of a hand injury that has kept him out of action since July 9th.

His 26 homers are good for second-best in the AL, and Alvarez has scored the third-most runs in the Junior Circuit with 57 on the year.
