‘Unknown Cause’: Houston Astros Star Yordan Alvarez Back At Ballpark After Being Hospitalized For ‘Scary’ Breathing Issue

Doctors were ‘unable’ to find a cause but anyone who’s been paying attention knows the reason


(ESPN) Houston Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez was held out of the lineup for Saturday’s game against the Braves after being taken to a hospital the previous night because of shortness of breath.

Manager Dusty Baker said doctors weren’t able to find any cause of the breathing issues. Alvarez was at the ballpark but under a concussion-like protocol in which the team was monitoring his every move.


Baker said Alvarez could return to the lineup for the finale of the three-game series Sunday.

“He’s better,” Baker said. “We’ve still got to watch him. He’s under what’s similar to a concussion protocol, where you’ve got to watch him. You don’t want him to maybe fall out. They couldn’t find anything, but that doesn’t mean nothing’s wrong.”

Baker called it a frightening situation but added he was somewhat relieved that one of the game’s most feared hitters was apparently not stricken with a serious medical problem.

“We’re just going to wait today,” the manager added. “We’ll see how he is tomorrow. He’ll probably DH if he’s feeling all right.”
