It not only was a deflating loss for Team Venezuela -- being ousted from the World Baseball Classic by Team USA on Saturday night -- but the Houston Astros also lost All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve for an undetermined period of time after he suffered a right-hand injury during an at-bat.

Altuve exited the game in the fifth inning after being drilled by a 96 MPH fastball by Colorado Rockies relief pitcher Daniel Bard.
