The Astros hope to activate Jose Altuve from the COVID-19 injured list early this week, manager Dusty Baker said on Sunday. Altuve continued to work out at Minute Maid Park prior to the team’s series finale against the Angels.

“He’s hitting off the machine, doing all he can to get ready,” Baker said. “We anticipate, hopefully, some time early in the week.”
