Now on the 10-day IL, along with Urquidy.  Maybe room in the lineup for Kyle Tucker after all, at least at the outset.

Yordan Alvarez (DH) HOU - Jul. 12

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=743036

Alvarez (undisclosed) remains absent from the Astros' summer camp as of Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The Astros ended up cancelling their workout Saturday for the second time in six days due to COVID-19 concerns, but Alvarez's ongoing absence from camp has created some doubt about his availability for the team's July 24 season opener versus the Mariners. Houston has been mum on Alvarez's absence thus far, with manager Dusty Baker merely stating that a "condition" has prevented him from reporting to camp. Though the status of Alvarez's health won't be known until he reports, the assumption is that he's at least moved past the knee soreness he experienced in spring training.

Yordan Alvarez (DH) HOU - Jul. 03

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=742304

Alvarez (knee) didn't join the Astros for their workouts in Houston on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Manager Dusty Baker said he couldn't say why Alvarez was unavailable due to "league mandates," so it sounds as though his absence is unrelated to the lingering knee issues that he battled before play was paused in March. It's not clear when he's expected to return.

Yordan Alvarez (DH) HOU - Jul. 02

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=742209

Alvarez (knee) will be the Astros' primary designated hitter in 2020, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Alvarez is listed as an outfielder, but a lingering knee issue and his defensive liabilities make him the likely DH for a majority of Houston's 60-game schedule. Cementing Alvarez at DH would leave roster spots for Myles Straw and Kyle Tucker or perhaps a surprise candidate like Chas McCormick.

From the Guide --

PATTON PICK: Fascinating to watch him struggle in the playoffs, and then adjust.

When someone does something that's off the chart, you regress to something on the chart. What that is is a guess. (That Hard Hit rate ranked fourth last year at 300 PA miniumum, behind Judge, Sano and N Cruz)

How do you regress when there's nothing to regress to?
