Astros' outfielder Yordan Alvarez's return to the lineup after a June injury is highly anticipated, and Houston provided an encouraging update on his progress.

Although he wasn't activated for Monday's game against the Texas Rangers, Alvarez continued his rehab work at Minute Maid Park. Alongside other injured Astros, including Jose Altuve, he engaged in various baseball activities, showcasing his dedication to getting back on the field.

During the day, Alvarez ran the bases and participated in other drills, with the team optimistic about his recovery. Despite reporters not having the chance to speak with him on Monday, Astros manager Dusty Baker assured them that Alvarez is very close to returning.

The team hopes to activate him either on Tuesday or Wednesday, and it's clear that he's inching closer to full fitness. Previously, Alvarez concluded an injury rehab assignment at Triple-A Sugar Land, putting up impressive numbers during his three-game stint.

He achieved a .333 batting average and recorded his 100th career Triple-A RBI. Such performances further underscore his readiness for a comeback. Unfortunately, a head cold delayed his rehab assignment by a few days following the All-Star Break.

Nevertheless, the Astros are optimistic about the talented player's return to bolster their lineup. With Houston trailing Texas by three games in the American League West, the Astros are eager to have Alvarez back to boost their chances in the second half of the season.

Before being placed on the 10-day injured list with right oblique discomfort on June 9, Alvarez had been in remarkable form, hitting .277 with an impressive .978 OPS. His 17 home runs and 55 RBI further highlighted his impact on the team's performance.

The Astros eagerly await his return to full strength and are hopeful that his presence will make a significant difference as they strive to close the gap in the division standings.
