Jose Altuve’s ‘terrible’ tattoo subject of Twitter scrutiny

Seems like the buzz the Astros have been hearing was from a tattoo gun.

On Saturday, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa defended teammate José Altuve over the Astros buzzer controversy. The team has been accused of wearing buzzers under their jerseys — in addition to their trash can and video schemes — to learn what type of pitch was coming.

“The second reason that he don’t want me to talk about this, but I’m gonna say it, is because he’s got an unfinished tattoo on his collarbone, right here, that, honestly, looked terrible,” Correa told The Athletic regarding that video. “It was a bad tattoo. And he didn’t want nobody to see it. He didn’t want to show it at all.”

Fans raced to Twitter to comment, and many had their own ideas about Jose Altuve’s tattoo.

Some fans thought that Correa was making the whole thing up.
