Jose Altuve (thumb surgery) out for Astros at least 2 months

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve underwent surgery on his right thumb Wednesday.

What It Means:

Altuve suffered a thumb fracture when he was hit by a pitch Saturday night in the World Baseball Classic. He's supposed to miss two months before resuming baseball activities. David Hensley and Mauricio Dubon are expected to cover second base for the Astros while Altuve is inactive.

Altuve averaged 12.1 FanDuel points per game last season and slashed .300/.387/.533 with 28 homers, 39 doubles, 57 RBI, 18 steals, and 103 runs scored across 604 plate appearances.
