Houston GM Dana Brown announced that 2B Jose Altuve's broken thumb would require surgery, and there is no timetable for his return. (Brian McTaggart on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

The news on Altuve continues to get worse with each update. The lack of a timetable is particularly distressing for fantasy managers, but a talent like Altuve should be stashed in an IL spot until his return. Mauricio Dubon presumably takes over second-base duties but can be ignored in fantasy formats.
