Astros' Yordan Alvarez (knees) could return Wednesday

Houston Astros left fielder Yordan Alvarez (knees) could return to action Wednesday.

What It Means:

Astros manager Dusty Baker was hopeful that the left fielder would be able to return early this week. There hasn't appeared to be much concern from the Astros organization regarding Alvarez's health, but a return this week should assuage any fears that he would miss the season opener.

numberFire projects Alvarez with a 0.285 batting average, with 38 home runs, 90 runs, 105 RBI and 1 stolen base.
