Jose Altuve was removed from tonight’s game after he sustained a leg injury 

José Carlos Altuve is a Venezuelan professional baseball second baseman for the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball. The Astros signed Altuve as an amateur free agent in 2007, and he made his major league debut in 2011. A right-handed batter and thrower.

As of 2017 he was the shortest active MLB player, at 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 m). His listed weight is 165 pounds (75 kg). From 2014 to 2017, Altuve recorded at least 200 hits each season and led the American League (AL) in the category. He won three batting championships in that span.

Altuve legged out an infield single with one out in the eighth and then fell to the ground past first base. He sat on the ground and threw his batting helmet into the ground as he winced in pain.

He looked huffed as he sat in the Minute Maid Park grass without his helmet after pulling up lame at first base when he suffered a left leg injury while trying to beat out an infield single in the eighth inning Monday. Briefly after the Astros’ 8-3 win over the Angels, Altuve didn’t have many answers, except that he already was feeling a little better than expected and he would be checked by doctors Tuesday.

He said in the Atros clubhouse after the win that he was a little bit scared, but some tests will be done and hopefully everything is fine and it’s not anything crazy.

Jose Altuve compared tonight’s injury to the left hamstring strain he suffered in 2019. He was set to miss about 2 weeks with that injury, but he ended up hurting his other leg during his Class AAA rehab assignment and was out nearly 6weeks.
