Yordan Alvarez Back In Astros Lineup

Houston Astros outfielder/designated hitter Yordan Alvarez (hip) is serving as the DH and is batting third for the Astros on Friday against the visiting division-rival Texas Rangers and left-hander Andrew Heaney. Knee and hip injuries have caused Alvarez to miss several games of late, but he's back for a big weekend series against Texas and needs to be returned to all starting fantasy lineups as one of the best all-around hitters in baseball. The 27-year-old left-handed slugger has hit .444 in his career with a 1.250 OPS, a home run and two RBI in 18 career at-bats against Heaney. Alvarez has gone just 2-for-13 with three walks and five strikeouts in his last five games, but overall, he's still hitting a strong .297/.382/.539 with a .921 OPS, 19 homers, 51 RBI and five stolen bases. The Cuban slugger is a must-start.

Yordan Alvarez Not Playing On Thursday

Houston Astros outfielder/designated hitter Yordan Alvarez (hip) is not in the team's starting lineup on Thursday versus the visiting Miami Marlins. It shouldn't come as a huge surprise after Alvarez was forced from Wednesday's game with right-hip tightness. Fantasy managers should consider the 27-year-old All-Star slugger to be day-to-day, but don't be surprised if he's held out multiple games as a precaution with the All-Star break coming next week. Alvarez is a must-start whenever he's in the lineup with an elite .297/.382/.539 slash line, .921 OPS, 19 home runs, 51 RBI, five stolen bases and 56 runs scored in 88 games in his sixth season in the big leagues. Rookie Joey Loperfido is in left field and is batting sixth on Thursday, with catcher Yainer Diaz serving as the DH and batting third against Marlins right-hander Roddery Munoz. Cesar Salazar is catching and hitting ninth.

Yordan Alvarez Dealing With Hip Tightness

Houston Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez (hip) left Wednesday's game against the visiting Miami Marlins with right hip tightness, and he was replaced in the lineup by Trey Cabbage. It's worth noting manager Joe Espada and a trainer came out of the dugout to look at Alvarez at first base earlier in the contest after the outfielder was hit in the right knee with a pitch on Saturday and didn't play on Sunday, but this latest injury sounds to be a separate issue. Fantasy managers should consider the 27-year-old All-Star slugger day-to-day until more information comes to light ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Marlins, but it wouldn't be shocking to see him get a day or two off to heal up. After tallying his 51st RBI and fifth stolen base of the season on Wednesday, Alvarez is now slashing .297/.382/.539 with 19 home runs, 21 doubles, and 56 runs scored across 330 at-bats. Joey Loperfido is worth a speculative add in deep leagues.
