Astros activate rookie Peña; Brantley injured vs Yanks

NEW YORK (AP) — The Houston Astros activated rookie shortstop Jeremy Peña from the injured list Sunday, but star outfielder Michael Brantley left their game against the New York Yankees with right shoulder discomfort. Star slugger Yordan Alvarez was out of the lineup with an ongoing hand issue as Houston tried to win its four-game series against the major league-leading New York Yankees. Alvarez hurt the hand on a swing July 18, sat out a game against the White Sox the next day and has played every game since. Manager Dusty Baker said Alvarez’s hand is still sore, and the 24-year-old may need regular rest.
