Astros expect Altuve back as they try to avoid sweep

The Houston Astros are ready to get second baseman Jose Altuve back in the lineup.

Altuve has been out since May 10 because of a strained left hamstring. He finished a rehab assignment Monday night at Triple-A Round Rock, met the Astros in Cincinnati on Tuesday night -- they lost to the Reds 4-3 -- and is expected to be activated from the injured list before the series finale on Wednesday.

Altuve, a six-time All-Star and the 2017 American League MVP, is hitting .243 in 39 games this season. The plan is for Altuve to play Wednesday, according to manager AJ Hinch.
