Houston Astros’ Jose Altuve to rejoin team in Cincinnati, could play Wednesday

Sports
June 18 (UPI) -- Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve could be back playing with the team as early as Wednesday after an extended stint on the injured list. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Wednesday that Altuve will join the team in Cincinnati for their final game against the Reds. The team will assess Altuve to see if he is healthy enough to play in the finale of the series against the Reds or if he needs more time to heal from his left hamstring injury. "There's a chance he is activated as soon as tomorrow, which would be great for our team, both morale-wise and production-wise," Hinch told MLB Network Radio on Tuesday. Altuve has not played since May 10 due to a hamstring injury. He has been rehabbing in Triple-A Round Rock playing five games. "It feels pretty good and its as exci...

A former Abu Dhabi investing official thinks ethics are going to play a bigger role in market decisions

Finance
Investors will soon apply environmental, social and governance standards to global governments as the role of ethics grows in the investing world, according to Paul O'Brien, the former deputy CIO of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, which manages more than $ 700 billion in assets.

"But, really, ethics applies to countries, too." One example of this was seen earlier this year. Pharo Management, a U...

Indians' Ramirez expected to play opening day

Sports
March 27 (UPI) -- The Cleveland Indians will have All-Star third baseman Jose Ramirez in the lineup for their season opener on Thursday, four days after fouling a ball off his knee.

Cleveland will take on the Minnesota Twins in their 2019 season opener at Target Field on Thursday afternoon. Having Ramirez will be critical since the team will be minus All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and second baseman Jason Kipnis. Both will begin the year on the injured list. The team announced Wednesday that Lindor, who was working his way back from a calf injury, suffered an ankle sprain running the bases in a minor league game Sunday. Lindor ...
