MVP Jose Altuve set to return to Astros on Tuesday

Jose Altuve

Jose Altuve is expected to return from the 10-day disabled list for the Houston Astros’ game on Tuesday.

Altuve has been out of action since late July due to soreness in his right knee. The injury caused the reigning American League MVP to land on the disabled list for the first time in his big league career. Fresh off of a rehab stint that saw Altuve record his first hit at the Triple-A level, the plan is for the Astros’ second baseman to be activated prior to Tuesday’s game.

Altuve last played on July 25. At that time, Houston had a five game lead in the AL West over the Seattle Mariners. The Astros currently have just a one game lead on the Oakland A’s, who have surpassed the Mariners. A healthy Altuve will certainly help the Astros’ chances of holding on to the top spot in their division.
