Houston Astros’ Yordan Alvarez hospitalized in Atlanta area after exiting game

Houston Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez felt sick on the field and was removed by two outs in the fifth inning of Friday night’s game against the Braves in Atlanta.

According to the team, Alvarez was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation.

After his team’s 6-2 loss, Astros manager Dusty Baker said Alvarez was experiencing shortness of breath, which was made worse by the smoke in the air after the Braves shot off fireworks at Truist Park.

“I’m glad we got him out in time,” Baker told reporters. “I looked up and he was in the dugout. It was a scary moment. It could be anything. They said he’s fine at the moment.”

Alvarez’s 31 homers is second in the AL and he leads the league in on-base percentage (1.017).

Chas McCormick switched to the left as Alvarez left and Mauricio Dubon took over in the middle.
