José Altuve will not return from DL during the Astros stay at home

Jose Altuve will not be back on the disabled list during the Houston Astros stay at home, which means that the reigning American League MVP will miss at least four more games. Altuge is making progress on his recovery from injury the right knee, but, until Friday, I was still not running at full speed. The second star base has not played since July 25 and entered the disabled list on July 29. "I feel the same," Altuve told reporters on Friday, according to the Houston Chronicle. "I do not think it takes that long, but I do not know." Houston has two weekend games of a four-game series against the Seattle Mariners. After a day off on Monday, the Astros will host Colorado Rockies for a couple of games before another day off, on Thursday, followed by a nine-game road trip against the Athletics, Mariners and Angels. Altuve, 28 , is hitting .329 with nine homers and 46 RBIs on the plate this season. The defending champion team has struggled during their absence, with a 6-7 record in 13 games that has been lost, while the club has scored three or less runs in nine of those games. "It's not easy not to be in the lineup "said Altuve. "But I'm supporting my teammates, I'm just there to support them, I hope we win a lot of games and we'll see what happens."
