21-year old righty swinging 2B Jose Altuve is a little dude as he is only 5′5″, 170 pounds but he carries a big stick. Altuve has been batting second mostly this year and he is really giving the Astros’ offense a nice shot in the arm. Altuve has played in 19 games for the Astros so far this year and he is 28 for 74 (.378 avg, 1.008 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 1 homer, 10 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. He has now played in 76 games in his first two years with the Astros and he is 89 of 295 (.302 avg, .745 OPS) with 39 runs scored, 3 homers, 22 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. Altuve is going to be a big part of the Astros’ massive rebuilding project in the coming years.
