Astros, nearing full health, out to seal series win over A's

Following a 47-game absence courtesy of a left hamstring strain, Astros utility man Aledmys Diaz made his triumphant return Monday at Minute Maid Park, slugging a three-run home run as Houston ran roughshod over the visiting Oakland Athletics in the opener of a pivotal three-game series.

The bigger picture for the Astros is what Diaz and his return represent.

Houston, up to a season-best 28 games over .500 following the 11-1 victory, has done far better than tread water while overcoming the absences of Jose Altuve, George Springer, Diaz and Carlos Correa, who is slated to return from a broken rib on Friday when the Astros open a three-game interleague road series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Correa has been sidelined since May 27.
