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)
The news on Altuve continues to get worse with each update.

Mauricio Dubon presumably takes over second-base duties but can be ignored in fantasy formats.
