George Springer Starting, Jose Altuve Out Of Lineup

Houston Astros outfielder George Springer (wrist) will return to the leadoff spot in Wednesday's game against the San Francisco Giants. Springer suffered a wrist injury last Thursday and was held out of the starting lineup until now, though he did make an appearance as a pinch runner on Tuesday. While Springer returns to the lineup, second baseman Jose Altuve will be getting a routine day off. Altuve had been the team's primary leadoff hitter with Springer out. It's been a rough year so far for Altuve, who is slashing just .187/.265/.333, but hopefully a day off can help get him back in gear.

Jose Altuve Will Be Absent From Wednesday’s Lineup Amid Slump

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve already knows that hell have the day off for Wednesdays series finale against the Giants, as manager Dusty Baker announced so prior to Tuesday's game. Altuve has been ice cold at the dish to open 2020 by his standards, having recently taken over the leadoff spot in the order with George Springer (wrist) out of the equation. With an xBA of .215 and xSLG of .330, Altuves metrics back up the .183/.256/.338 slash line that he has compiled through his first 16 games. Baker is hoping that sitting Altuve on Wednesday, mixed with Thursdays off-day, yields positive results when he returns to the lineup Friday against Mariners left-hander Yusei Kikuchi, whom he homered against last year.

Jose Altuve’s Early Season Struggles Continue With 0-for-6

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has proven to be one of the sport's most prolific hitters over the past decade, but his ice cold start to the 2020 year is reaching a fever pitch following an 0-for-6 performance Sunday against the Angels. Having also left nine men on base, it marks just the third time in Altuves career that he has produced an 0-for-6 showing. Through his first nine games, his average sits at a paltry .158 with a .552 OPS, far below what owners were anticipating from the four-time American League hit leader. Equally concerning is his lack of hard contact to open the season, entering Sunday with an average exit velocity of 84.1 MPH, which would be the lowest of his career. His price tag remains sky high in DFS, but until he begins to turn the corner, owners can opt for more reasonably priced options.
