Yordan Alvarez avoids disaster, but he suffers a catastrophic injury

During the Houston Astros’ game against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, June 18, slugger Yordan Alvarez may have escaped major damage to his hand.

Yordan Alvarez, a slugger with the Houston Astros, is one of the best batters in the game. However, Alvarez was forced to leave the game against the Chicago White Sox in the seventh inning after suffering an injury on the penultimate swing of his at-bat. Then it was announced that Alvarez would not play in the team’s series finale on Sunday.

The Astros feared Alvarez had broken his hamate bone in his hand, according to ESPN MLB insider Buster Olney, but an examination proved that this was not the case. Despite the excellent news, Alvarez’s manager, Dusty Baker, expressed his optimism that Alvarez would be out for “only a few days.”

He did not want to indicate which hand was hurt since he didn’t want the opposition to read it. He did say, though, that his hand had “nothing structurally wrong with it.”

This season, Alvarez has been on a tear, especially in the month of June. Through 15 games, the slugger has slashed.444/.523/.778 with four home runs, 19 RBI, and 24 hits in 54 at-bats.

In 59 games this season, Alvarez has a.311 batting average, a 1.026 OPS, 18 home runs, and 47 RBI.

The Astros will undoubtedly hope that Alvarez will be able to return to the lineup during this crucial week. Houston will travel to face the National League’s best team, the New York Mets, and the American League’s best team, the New York Yankees.
