Yordan Alvarez just returned to the Astros after missing most of the season because of COVID. After playing in two games, Alvarez has been out while dealing with knee discomfort. Now, it looks like things have gotten worse and Alvarez could be done for the season according to manager, Dusty Baker. According to Baker who spoke on the team's flagship radio station Wednesday, "It looks like he's done, maybe for the year."

Alvarez recently had an MRI performed on his knee, and clearly the results weren't good. For the Astros, dealing with injuries is the new norm in 2020. Fans have to wonder how many more injuries can the team take?

MLB Network's Jon Heyman is reporting that starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi and the Astros have agreed on a 2-year year contract with a 3rd-year player option. Odorizzi is 30 years old with a 3.92 career ERA. This signing seems to indicate Framber Valdez will miss significant time with a fractured left ring finger. But overall, the Astros rotation is looking good with the addition of Odorizzi, and hopefully Valdez will return to the rotation at some point this season.
