Astros Place DH Yordan Alvarez on the Injured List


Jun 10, 2023

The Houston Astros announced on Friday that they had placed designated hitter Yordan Alvarez on the injured list.

Alvarez had to leave Thursday’s game due to an oblique issue. The Astros are calling it discomfort for now, but Alvarez will undergo further testing to determine the severity of the injury and how long he will be out of the lineup.

This has been a rough week for sluggers throughout Major League Baseball as the Yankees lost Aaron Judge to a toe sprain, the Mets Pete Alonso to a wrist sprain, and now Alvarez has hit the IL for the Astros.

On Saturday, the Astros will be in Cleveland to take on the Guardians. Houston will have J.P. France on the hill against Triston McKenzie of the Guardians. The Astros are -170 (+1.5) on the run line and +126 on the moneyline, with an over/under of eight, over (-118), and under (-104).

You can find the lines and props for this game and all others on the FanDuel Sportsbook.
