In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria’s damage in September 2017, Carlos was heavily active in attempts by Puerto Rican ballplayers to provide relief.
During the Astros’ March 12 meeting with President Trump at the White House, he even missed out on the event entirely. After President Trump’s disparaging remarks about Puerto Rico following Hurricane Irma (teammate Carlos Beltran also skipped the tournament), some speculated that this was a political move.
However, he merely wanted to take a day off to aid his fellow Puerto Ricans in any way he could. As a native of Puerto Rico and an American, he felt it was his duty to help raise awareness about the plight of his fellow islanders.
He spent the day assembling relief goods to be sent to the island. Due to lower back pain, he missed the entire month of July and parts of June and August in 2018.
He only hit two long balls following his comeback, one of which came in his final game before the postseason on September 29th, as a result of the injury, which lowered his batting average and diminished his power.
Consequently, he hit just .239 with 15 home runs and 65 RBI, putting him at .323/.405/.405 overall.
After going 0-for-10 with a home run in the Division Series victory over the Cleveland Indians, he rebounded to go 6-for-19 in the ALCS loss to the Boston Red Sox, where the Astros were eliminated in six games by the Red Sox.
