The Houston Astros have been one of the American League's best teams this season and will be playing for playoff seeding through the last month of the MLB season.

That may have gotten a little more difficult on Saturday after Yordan Alvarez fouled a ball of his leg and needed to be helped off the field.

Luckily the x-rays came back negative. Although, there is still no timetable for his return.

Alavarez is in the midst of a great year, hitting .283 with 28 home runs and 89 RBI. Losing that type of production from your lineup will complicate things for any team.

The Astros are currently +450 to win the World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest MLB odds, trailing only the Los Angeles Dodgers.
