Yordan Alvarez Back in Starting Lineup for the Houston Astros

Yordan Alvarez will return to the starting lineup on Saturday for the Houston Astros, the official website reports.

Alvarez had missed the last two games for the Astros after suffering a head injury during a brutal collision with shortstop Jeremy Pena on Wednesday versus the Mets at CitiField. Alvarez will bat third and be the designated hitter Saturday.

If not for the season Aaron Judge is having for the New York Yankees and the unicorn that Shohei Ohtani is for the Los Angeles Angels, there would be quite a bit of talk about Alvarez winning the American League Most Valuable Player award.

The Astros and the Yankees may be on a collision course to see who will represent the American League in the World Series, but on Saturday, they will play the Angels. The Astros will have Jose Urquidy on the bump, and the Angels will go with Pablo Sandoval. The Astros are +122 (-1.5) on the run line and -162 on the money line, with an over/under of 8.5, over (-114), and under (-106). You can find the odds and props for this game and every other at the FanDuel Sportsbook.
