Report: Jose Altuve undergoes knee surgery

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has reportedly wasted no time trying to rectify the right knee problem that bothered him for the bulk of the season.

According to MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart, Altuve underwent right knee surgery on Friday, a day after his Astros were eliminated from the American League Championship Series.

It’s not a huge surprise. The injury has been a lingering one, and it forced him into his first career DL appearance during the regular season. It was so troublesome for him in the playoffs that he couldn’t play second base and was relegated to DHing during the final three games of the ALCS, and made even worse by the fact that he aggravated it during Game 4. It may well have been a factor in a playoff series that saw him hit just .250 with only one extra-base hit.
