Astros, Reds rookie sluggers rewrite baseball history with three-homer games

The rookies are taking over Major League Baseball.

We’ve heard all the buzz surrounding Pete Alonso, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Fernando Tatis Jr., just to name a few.

On Saturday, it was Yordan Alvarez of the Houston Astros and Aristides Aquino of the Cincinnati Reds who rewrote the history books by becoming the first pair of rookie sluggers to each hit three home runs on the same day.

And that tidbit was just the tip of the iceberg.

So, are the rookies actually taking over, and, if so, why?

Plus.

Hinch said Friday that Altuve, Springer and Diaz could be sent on Minor League rehab assignments by the end of the homestand. Altuve has been out since May 10 with a strained left hamstring/right leg fatigue. Springer has been out since May 24, and Diaz has been out since May 26, both with strained left hamstrings.

Correa sustained a broken rib getting a massage at his home on May 28 and was expected to miss four to six weeks.

The injuries have forced the Astros to call up outfielders Myles Straw and Derek Fisher and infielder Jack Mayfield from Triple-A Round Rock and each has seen significant playing time. The club also called up catching prospect Garrett Stubbs late last month when Max Stassi went on the IL with knee soreness.
