A new report has emerged that the home of Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve was broken into on Opening Day. He reportedly left the house and forgot to set the alarm and was eventually broken into on March 30.

According to the Houston Chronicle:

Altuve, who was unable to play due to the injury, left for Minute Maid Park for the March 30 Opening Day game against the Chicago White Sox and forgot to set his home alarm, a detective detailed in a written search warrant.

According to the report, $1 million worth of gold watches and jewelry were taken from his home. Understandably, Astros fans are upset about this news.

It’s safe to say that Astros fans aren’t too happy about what happened to the home of their second star. He’s a huge figure for the team and has been the face of their franchise since before they became the dynasty they are today. Naturally, fans don’t come to terms with the offenses against Altuve.

When can Jose Altuve return to the Houston Astros?

Currently, there is no schedule for Jose Altuve’s return from a broken thumb he suffered in the World Baseball Classic for Team Venezuela. He hasn’t had any MLB action so far this season as a result.

He said Via CBS Sports:

“I think right now it’s hard to tell. Anything is possible. I work really hard. I want to come back and help these guys win, but we’ll see.”

The initial schedule was a two-month recovery, which so far has been approx. However, this was only to recover from the injury. This did not take into account the league’s minor rehab assignment.

A prolonged one may be needed, so the Astros may be without their star for a while longer.

They struggled in his absence, posting a 16-14 record and losing a few games behind the Texas Rangers in the AL West to start the season.
