Battling virus but in lineup Alvarez is dealing with a virus that's led to an upset stomach and headaches, Ken Rosenthal and Chandler Rome of The Athletic report.
Impact Alvarez is in the lineup Monday for Game 2 of the ALCS but it appears he'll be participating at less than full strength. The slugger played through the illness in Game 1, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts and a weakly-hit grounder. Alvarez is at designated hitter and batting cleanup for Houston in Game 2.
