Astros' Altuve suffers subluxed jaw

The SportsXchange

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve suffered a subluxed right jaw as a result of collision with right fielder Jimmy Paredes on Monday.

However, reported that Altuve told Astros manager Bo Porter than he thinks he can play Tuesday.

A sublux means there is a partial dislocation of the joint.

The collision occurred when Altuve ran into shallow right field to try to catch a fly ball off the bat of Detroit's Jhonny Peralta. Altuve ran into Paredes, and the ball fell for a hit.

Altuve, 23, has been the Astros best player this season. He's batting .333 with two home runs, 18 RBIs and four stolen bases.
