  • Astros' Yordan Alvarez: Moved to designated hitter

    Alvarez will be the designated hitter against the White Sox on Friday instead of playing left field, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

    Alvarez is still hitting third, but he'll be kept away from defensive duties in a game that has been delayed due to inclement weather. Corey Julks moves from DH to left field in Alvarez's place.

  • Astros' Yordan Alvarez: Smacks seventh homer of year

    Alvarez went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 6-4 win over Seattle.

    Alvarez's 408-foot long ball to center gave Houston a 3-0 lead in the third inning. The power hitter is now tied for third in the league with 30 RBI, and he now has hits in eight of his last nine games. The 25-year-old's current batting average (.263) is significantly below his mark from last season (.306), but Alvarez still has plenty of time to get hot and boost that number close to .300.
