Altuve, your concerns become reality… “At least 2 months off”

It seems that Jose Altuve (32, Houston Astros) will not be able to digest the first half of this season properly.

Houston general manager Dana Brown said in an interview with local media on the 22nd (local time), “Altuve will not play baseball for at least two months.”

Altuve was previously hit by an opposing pitcher’s fastball at the end of the 5th inning of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) quarterfinal match between the United States and Venezuela. After complaining of pain, he was replaced by runner Luis Renhipo(26).

On this day, there were voices of concern that Altuve’s recovery would take more than two months. Houston said, “It is, but we will do our best to return,” but in the end, this concern became a reality.

Altuve’s vacancy is expected to be filled by utility player Mauricio Dubon (26)안전놀이터.
