Yordan Alvarez
Outfield work very unlikely
DHHouston Astros
Knee
February 26, 2021
Astros manager Dusty Baker suggested that it's 'very unlikely' that Alvarez (knees) will play in the outfield this season, even if it's just a game or two per week, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. "It's shown in the past that whenever [Alvarez] plays in the outfield, he's hurting for two or three days, you know what I mean?" Baker said. "Who knows? That's very speculative as to how much he's going to play or how he's going to feel. We're a long way from making that determination, I think. We're just trying to get him on the field as the DH first."
