PLAYERS: Jose Altuve
TEAMS: Houston Astros
The Houston Astros kept second baseman Jose Altuve out of the lineup for the second game in a row yesterday as he continues to be hampered by a groin injury. Manager Bo Porter told Brian McTaggart of MLB.com that he would likely “lean on the side of caution” when it comes to Altuve. "I always lean on the side of caution, especially when you're talking lower extremity," Porter said. "The last thing you want is for something to be mild and then you get into a game and it becomes something that lingers for a long period of time." Altuve was able to participate in batting practice yesterday, and he’ll be reevaluated prior to today’s contest against the Kansas City Royals. If it were up to Altuve, he would be playing. But Porter said that he’s going to defer to the team’s training staff. "He wants to play," manager Bo Porter said before the series opener against the Royals. "But I'm not going to listen to him. I'm going to listen to the experts -- the trainers. They said he could use another day. I'm going to take their advice." Prior to suffering the groin injury, Altuve was in the midst of another nice campaign for the Astros. The 23-year-old is hitting .297/.335/.397 with 12 doubles, one triple, three home runs and nine stolen bases in 13 attempts. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Bud Selig forgets what year it is, announces picks for "2000" player draft (Video)

On Thursday, MLB commissioner Bud Selig announced the selections for the 2013 player draft.
