Astros infielder Jose Altuve ejected in victory at Mets

Jose Altuve was hopping mad. He had appeared to foul a ball off his left foot in the seventh inning of Sunday’s match at the New York Mets, with runners on second and third and two outs as the Houston Astros tried to boost their 4-2 lead. The ball went on three hops to third baseman Mark Vientos, who threw to first as Altuve remained near the batter’s box. Umpires ruled it an inning-ending groundout, and Altuve was ejected for the second time in his major league career after tossing his helmet and bat. “They didn’t see it,” Altuve said after the Astros’ 10-5 victory in 11 […]

Astros’ Alvarez 3rd player with two 460-foot-plus HRs in game

Before the first of two games in Mexico City, Houston Astros manager Joe Espada stated he hoped that the trip could help them solve their offensive struggles. Apparently, it worked. Yordan Alvarez hit two home runs, Kyle Tucker added a solo shot and the Houston Astros defeated the Colorado Rockies 12-4 on Saturday night in the MLB World Tour: Mexico City Series to snap a five-game losing streak. Alvarez hit a two-run homer to center field and Tucker followed with a shot to left field and the Astros took a 4-2 lead in the third. Alvarez hit his seventh home run of the season in the ninth […]

Cubs’ Pete Crow-Armstrong gets 1st MLB hit with tiebreaking home run

Pete Crow-Armstrong hit a tiebreaking two-run homer for his first major league hit, and the Chicago Cubs swept the Houston Astros with a 3-1 victory on Thursday. Houston has lost a season-high five consecutive and eight of nine overall. At 7-19, it is off to its worst 26-game start since it was 6-20 in 1969. First-year manager Joe Espada was ejected by plate umpire Jansen Visconti in the top of the ninth. “I just did not agree with his strike zone all day,” Espada said after his first ejection as a big league manager. Crow-Armstrong was recalled from Triple-A Iowa when Cody Bellinger was placed on the 10-day […]

Braves’ Ozzie Albies fractures big toe after hit by pitch

The Atlanta Braves placed second baseman Ozzie Albies on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a fractured big toe on his right foot. In another move, the Braves finalized a minor league deal with former American League batting champion Yuli Gurriel, who was assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett. Albies, 27, was hit by a pitch in the second inning by Houston Astros rookie Spencer Arrighetti on Monday but continued playing in the 6-1 triumph. “It’s a freak injury, and there’s nothing I can do it,” Albies said. “Just makes sure I heal fast, and I’m ready to go.” Manager Brian Snitker didn’t give a timetable for Albies’ return, but he […]

Houston Astros’ Ronel Blanco no-hits Toronto Blue Jays

Ronel Blanco, making his first start of the season, baffled the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night, pitching a no-hitter in the Houston Astros’ 10-0 victory. Blanco, coming off a modest 2-1 season in which he concluded with a 4.50 ERA, ignited an Astros club that was coming off a four-game sweep at the hands of the New York Yankees, giving Houston its first victory of the season and Major League Baseball its first no-hitter of the year. He threw 105 pitches, posting seven strikeouts along the way, with just two walks. When Vladimir Guerrero Jr. grounded out to end it, Blanco smiled broadly before raising his […]

Juan Soto delivers game-saving throw in New York Yankees debut

That Juan Soto’s first signature Yankee moment happened in his debut on Opening Day wasn’t far-fetched for a superstar with an uncanny ability to show out in the biggest moments. But for that moment to happen on a game-saving defensive play? That wasn’t a part of the script anyone, at least on the outside, envisioned for Soto, whose defense has been a knock on him, especially over the past two seasons. That’s what happened Thursday afternoon versus the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park. With one out and two runners on in the ninth inning and the Yankees nursing a one-run lead, Kyle Tucker smashed a single […]

Adolis García, Rangers agree to 2-year deal, avoid arbitration

Adolis García and the Texas Rangers agreed Thursday to a two-year deal, the team revealed. The deal, according to multiple reports, is worth $14 million and avoids a salary arbitration hearing for the American League Championship Series MVP and the World Series champions. The deal through 2025 is pending a physical. García was the only Rangers player eligible for salary arbitration who didn’t reach a deal before last month’s deadline. An arbitration hearing had been arranged for Thursday before the agreement was reached. The two-time All-Star slugger, who set an MLB postseason record with 22 RBIs last fall, had requested $6.9 million and […]

Astros’ Jose Altuve gets to stay ‘home’ with contract extension

Ten months from free agency, Jose Altuve knew what he wanted. “Houston is my home,” he said. He achieved his goal to stay with the Astros, agreeing to a contract that will pay $125 million from 2025 to 2029, when he will be 39. “I have obviously two homes,” he said Wednesday at a news conference, a day after the deal was announced. “I grew up in Venezuela, my country. Every time I go there, I tell my wife, ‘Let’s go home.’ And then when it’s time to come back, I tell her, ‘Let’s come back home.'” An eight-time All-Star, two-time World Series […]

Josh Hader, Astros agree to record five-year $95M deal

All-Star closer Josh Hader agreed to terms on a five-year, $95 million contract with the Houston Astros on Friday, significantly bolstering a team that has made seven successive appearances in the American League Championship Series, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. The deal doesn’t include any deferrals, making it the largest ever for a relief pitcher in terms of present-day value. Edwin Diaz signed a five-year, $102 million deal with the New York Mets last offseason, but $26.5 million of it was deferred, giving it a present-day value in the neighborhood of $93 million. The Astros’ pickup of Hader comes on the heels of news that Kendall Graveman, one […]

Astros manager Dusty Baker has said that he will retire

Dusty Baker has retired as manager of the Houston Astros, he told USA Today on Wednesday, ending an illustrious 26-year career as a big league skipper highlighted by a World Series win last season. “I’m very grateful and thankful to Jim Crane and the Houston Astros for giving me this opportunity, and to win a championship,” Baker, 74, told USA Today in an interview. “I felt like they’ve been good for me, and I’ve been good for them. “What I really appreciate is that Jim has been totally honest and transparent with me on all things.’ Baker’s decision comes two days after […]
