Adding injury to insult, the Astros lost last night and also saw their All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve leave the game after a collision with Carlos Correa in the second inning.
Carlos Correa and Altuve raced to catch a fly ball of the end of the bat of Elvis Andrus, which seemed destined to find a hole between the two fielders. Altuve caught the ball but also caught the full weight of 6'4", 211 pound Carlos Correa.
Correa seemed to be okay, but Altuve was in clear pain. Altuve exited the game. But said after the game that he doesn't feel as if he got a concussion.
Altuve has no sign of concussion. "We feel like we dodged a little bit of a bullet there," Hinch said. "Maybe something went our way."— Brian McTaggart ⚾️ (@brianmctaggart) September 26, 2015
Altuve is back in the lineup today, so hopefully is all well.
