    Altuve went 1-for-2 with a walk and played five innings at second base during Friday's game against the Cardinals.

    Impact

    Altuve played for the first time since May 6, when he was scratched from a game due to soreness in his side. He will get a day off Saturday before returning to the field Sunday, Alyson Footer of MLB.com reports. There is still plenty of time for the elite second baseman to get ready for the start of the regular season.

    Altuve (side) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Mets, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Impact

    This issue of side soreness will keep Altuve sidelined for a fifth straight day. He was examined by the team physician Sunday and the team continues to label Altuve's injury as a minor concern. Altuve is still expected to be withheld from baseball activities until the weekend as the Astros attempt to aid his recovery.
