José Altuve leaves the Astros lineup due to leg discomfort

The alarms are set off within the Houston Astros. José Altuve was removed from the Texas team’s lineup for Saturday’s game against the Washington Nationals.

The star Venezuelan infielder has a sore leg after suffering a fall in the outfield that caused him to leave the field during Friday’s MLB game.

Mauricio Dubón can play center field, second base, third base and shortstop. Both Jose Altuve and Jeremy Peña have been dealing with nagging, minor injuries lately. The Astros have gotten next to nothing from their current bench.

However, it would not be a serious physical problem, so he could be back in action as soon as on Sunday for the closing of the series against the team led by Dominican star Juan Soto.

In Altuve’s absence, Niko Goodrum assumed the responsibility of covering second base for the Astros, who are currently in first place in the American League West, with a record of 22 wins and 12 losses.
