Jose Altuve suffered a setback during his rehab assignment for a hamstring injury, complaining of fatigue and soreness in his right knee, the one that underwent surgery during the off-season. He will remain on IL, and according to Jeff Luhnow, his situation should be resolved “in a few weeks.”
In the case of both players the official response is optimistic, that they are minor injuries that will not threaten the players’ seasons. Time will tell. Rookie Jack Mayfield will play shortstop tonight for the Astros.
