Latest Update Jose Altuve went 4-for-5 with two doubles and a RBI in the Astros win over the Rangers on Sunday at Minute Maid Park. Sun Aug, 31, 06:32 PM
Has pretty good pop in his bat and a lot of speed for running the bases. Is steady afield. A gamer, he can be trusted to be in the lineup every day. Boasts excellent bat control.
Flaws: : Is undersized, so it's always a constant battle to prove himself. Doesn't draw enough walks to maximize his base-stealing and table-setting skills. Will never be a huge home-run hitter.
Altuve continues to hit the ball and is continually rewarding his fantasy owners. With four more hits today his average sits above .330 and he has also stole 49 bases. Altuve should be started on all rosters and is a top fantasy option at second base.Analyst: Colby Conway
The dream season continues and in what better fashion than a grand slam to help boost those already tasty August totals? No stolen bases in his last seven games is a bit of a bummer if we want to nitpick and be critical, but the fact that he's never gone more than two-straight games without a hit certainly helps assuage any minor angst towards a temporary shortcoming. Continue to roll with Altuve as that second-half drop-off that some pundits predicted doesn't appear to be based in any reality.Analyst: Howard Bender
Just another day for the top second baseman in fantasy baseball. Even though he possesses very little power, Altuve is a fantasy monster and will continue to put up fantastic numbers this season. His game has just one flaw, but he more than makes up for it in other areas. He could be a first round talent next season.Analyst: David Kerr
