Jose Altuve leaves game after scary outfield collision (Video)

Jose Altuve was removed from Tuesday’s game between the Indians and Astros after a scary collision in the outfield with Teoscar Hernandez.

In the bottom of the eighth inning, Altuve and Hernandez were both tracking a shallow fly ball off the bat of Yan Gomes when the two collided, leaving both men on the ground in discomfort. Here are a couple of videos from different angles.

Altuve left the game under his own power. However, Hernandez was taken off on a cart, per Mark Berman of FOX 26.

Hernandez was called up from Triple-A earlier in the day and was making his first big league appearance of the season. He entered the game in the seventh inning as a defensive replacement. Altuve, a four-time All-Star came into the game hitting .324 and leads the American League in stolen bases with seven. Hopefully, both are able to avoid serious injuries.
