Yordan Alvarez landed on the injured list for unknown reasons

The Astros placed Yordan Alvarez on the injured list for unknown reasons.

Fantasy Impact

Yordan Alvarez started off red hot with two home runs, seven runs, and eight RBI with a .283 batting average in 49 plate appearances. Hopefully, it's nothing serious for Alvarez, as one of the top designated hitters in the league.

Yordan Alvarez goes 0-for-4 with four strikeouts Friday

Friday was not a good day for Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez. The 23-year-old went hitless through four at-bats, striking out every time.

Fantasy Impact

This is hopefully just a fluke for the youngster, as he's been on a tear this season and is still hitting .294. Alvarez has 10 hits (including four doubles and two homers) and eight RBI so far. He'll look to bounce back on Saturday against Oakland.

Yordan Alvarez homers and doubles in win

Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez went 2-for-4 with a home run and double on Thursday. He scored once and knocked in two runs in addition to striking out twice.

Fantasy Impact

Alvarez has had a strong start to the season and brought his batting average up to .333 in the win on Thursday. The 23-year-old is once again looking to be a key part of the Houston lineup in his third big-league season. He's currently ranked 17th among outfielders in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.

Yordan Alvarez goes 3-for-4 with home run in win

The offensive output keeps coming for the Astros' lineup. Yordan Alvarez had another big game on Saturday, finishing 3-for-4 with two runs and three RBI. He gave Houston extra insurance in the top of the ninth with a three-run homer.

Fantasy Impact

The 23-year-old slashed .313/.412/.655 in 2019 and has opened this season on a 5-for-12 clip. While Alvarez doesn't steal bases, he has what it takes to be both a top MLB and fantasy asset. His presence is felt in an Astros lineup that has been red-hot to start the year.

Yordan Alvarez knocks in three runs

Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez contributed to the Astros' run parade on Thursday with three RBI of his own. Houston beat Oakland, 8-1, as Alvarez finished 1-for-3 with a bases-clearing double.

Fantasy Impact

Injuries plagued Alvarez's 2020 season, but he dominated as a rookie the year prior, clobbering 50 home runs and winning AL Rookie of the Year. Alvarez isn't a sure thing this season thanks to his injury history and just 89 games of experience, but his value should gain plenty of clarity if he can stay healthy in the coming weeks. Regardless, he provides power and potential in an Astros lineup that lost George Springer this past winter.
