Astros' Yordan Alvarez lands on IL with oblique injury - ESPN
The Houston Astros have placed slugger Yordan Alvarez on the 10-day injured list with right oblique discomfort, it was announced Friday.
The outfielder will return to Houston for further evaluation.
Alvarez, who was serving as the designated hitter, left Thursday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays after a ground out in the first inning. He said he first felt sore when hitting in the cage before the game and felt pain again when he swung and missed at the first two pitches in his lone at bat.
