A Month and nine days into the 2023 MLB Season, and we’ve already seen a lot of action. For the Houston Astros, who have struggled early on in 2023, anticipate a couple of returns to their roster.
Injuries have plagued the defending 2022 World Series Champions. Key players such as Lance McCullers, Jose Urquidy, and Michael Brantley have missed a majority if not all of the 2023 season.

Notably, Jose Altuve continues his rehab stint in the Astros Minor League System as he began an assignment with the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks.

According to MiLB, In his first game with Corpus Christi, Altuve went 0-5 from the plate.
Beginning his rehabilitation assignment with the Triple-A Sugar Land Space Cowboys, Altuve played three games before going south to Corpus Christi with the Hooks.

The Astros’ Second Baseman, who suffered a hand injury representing Venezuela in the 2023 World Baseball Classic back in March, looks to rejoin the Astros, who have definitely fallen a bit behind in the standings.

In the American League West Division, the Astros sit in second right behind the Texas Rangers, who have had a foothold of first place since the Season began.

Altuve has not been the only Astro down in the Coastal Bend. Outfielder Chas McCormick had himself a rehabilitation assignment in Corpus three weeks ago.
Altuve’s assignment is set to continue in Corpus Christi.
