Astros Jose Altuve passes hamstring test, should play Monday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) Astros second baseman Jose Altuve missed his fourth straight game on Sunday, with a hamstring injury. However, Altuve did a second straight day of pregame drills, and the hamstring passed all tests. 

Manager A.J. Hinch is confident that Altuve will be able to play in Monday's game. 

Altuve did striding drills on Saturday and side-to-side movement on Sunday.

“I think he’s answered probably every test,” Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. “There’s certain stuff we can’t do until you get into a game. But he’s making steady progress and we’re going to get him on the field pretty soon. He had his helmet on last night. Was going to pinch hit at one point. So he’s available. But I’m going to hold off staring him until at least tomorrow.”

Altuve reported no pain in the hamstring on Sunday.

Altuve was said to be feeling better, but it seemed unlikely he would return for Saturday's game, and his status for Sunday remains unclear at this point.

"They [talk] like I’m ready but like I say yesterday, it’s their call, so whenever they decide," he said, per MLB.com. "I don’t want to do anything stupid. But I feel like I’m great but like I said I’m going to be patient."

Astros' Jose Altuve sits Thursday after having setback Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2015) As expected, Astros second baseman Jose Altuve was not in the starting lineup Thursday against the Rockies after suffering a setback with his hamstring injury Wednesday. Marwin Gonzalez drew the start at second base in his absence.

"It's day to day," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "He's already gone through one round of treatments, and he'll go through another round of treatments. He's doesn't feel a lot of discomfort, so that's an encouraging sign. I really don't want to play him until we're certain he can play with the pace of play that we're accustomed to. We'll be very careful with him."

Hinch said Altuve doesn't need to undergo an MRI.

“Right now, the information we're getting indicates that's not necessary, so not at this point," he said.

Altuve is batting .250 (12 for 48) with one double, three RBI, four runs, one walk, seven strikeouts and two stolen bases in 13 June games.

Manager A.J. Hinch indicated Altuve would not play on Thursday, according to the Houston Chronicle

"He didn't look great yesterday, he didn't look great today," Hinch said. "I didn't want to see anymore. We've got to be so cautious with him, especially here at the high altitude. I don't think he felt great, and I had seen enough and wanted to get him out of the game. I want to err on the side of caution with him."

Altuve has 17 stolen bases in 62 games.
