Altuve is back with the Astros

The Astroboy was out four games with a right oblique strain

It breathes tranquility in Houston. José Altuve returned to the Astros lineup on Wednesday after four games absent.

The "Astroboy", who missed a month and a half due to a fractured thumb on his right hand, set off the alarms again last week due to a right oblique strain.

However, he took batting practice Tuesday at the Rogers Center before the game against the Blue Jays and said he was ready.

"It was a swing with which I felt something, and you have to be careful with the oblique... So I took my time to get ready," Altuve said in a statement reviewed by Las Mayores.

In the 12 games he has played this year, Altuve is hitting .267 with two home runs - including the seventh Grand Slam of his career - and six RBIs.
