Injury Update On Houston Astros Superstar Slugger

Houston Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez is still dealing with soreness in his left hand and has not resumed swinging a bat in spring training, according to manager Dusty Baker.
This issue is concerning as Alvarez also suffered from hand soreness during the 2022 season.
Although both Baker and Alvarez have downplayed the situation and have not provided a timeline for his return, the 25-year-old left-handed hitter will need to resume baseball activities soon to be ready for Opening Day at the end of March.

When healthy, Alvarez was among the best hitters in baseball last season, making his first All-Star team and finishing with a .306/.406/.613 triple-slash line, 37 home runs, 97 RBI, and 95 runs scored in 135 games played.

Over the last two seasons, the twenty-five-year-old holds a fantastic .291/.375/.569 triple-slash line, with 70 home runs, 201 RBIs and 187 runs scored over 279 games played.
