Jose Altuve (2B)

Houston Astros - 100% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 with a double, scored a run and batted in his third RBI of the young season.

Fantasy Impact: Altuve is riding a six-game hit streak with three of those being multi-hit games, so it is safe to say the rust to start the year has worn off for the second baseman. Altuve is a must-start every time the Astros take the field.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 connecting on his first home run of the season, as the Astros lost 8-1 to the Athletics.

Fantasy Impact: Altuve was the lone bright spot in the Astros loss, driving in the only run of the game for Houston. The Astros combined for a total of five hits, as Altuve had three. If you are an Altuve owner, he must be in you lineup everyday. His consistency is unmatched by any second baseman.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 with one RBI and one walk. His RBI came on a bases-loaded walk in the sixth inning.

Fantasy Impact: Altuve was in a little bit of a slump to start the year, but looked good at the plate yesterday, knocking his two hits to the opposite field. Altuve is one of the best second baseman in fantasy and should be in your lineup everyday.

Jose Altuve went 1-for-5 striking out once in the Astros 5-1 victory over the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Altuve has not had a great start to the season, collecting only two hits in his first 16 plate appearances. More than likely, he will shake the rust off soon, four games is not a large sample size in a 162 game season. He is a must-start second baseman every week until further notice.

Jose Altuve went 0-for-3 with one walk, one stolen base, while stranding two base-runners in a loss to the Indians.

Fantasy Impact: Altuve has one hit in his first three games this season, not ideal for the leading hits leader from 2014. On the bright side, Altuve has been aggressive on the base-paths stealing his second base of the season. Sooner or later, Altuve will break out of this mini-slump and should be in your lineup moving forward.

Jose Altuve went 0-for-4 in the Astros loss to the Indians.

Fantasy Impact: The entire Astros offense looked out of sync, managing only four hits the entire game. Altuve does not go 0-for-4 often, so do not look too much into this game. The Astros second baseman is a must start every time he steps onto the field.

Jose Altuve was 1-for-4 with a single, stolen base, and scored the games first run, in the Astros 2-0 victory.

Fantasy Impact: Jose Altuve sparked the Astros offense as he was able to break-up Corey Kluber's no-hit bid in the sixth inning that led to the game-winning run. Altuve is picking up where he left off in 2014, getting on base and being aggressive on the base-paths. He is a must start option in all formats.

Altuve led off for the Astros and went 0-for-2. He struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Prior to this game, Altuve sported a .417 batting average. He remains one of the top second basemen in fantasy, and his fantasy owners should not be concerned. He's the second most expensive 2B in Fan Duel at $4,300 on Opening Day for a reason.

Jose Altuve went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Houston's 7-4 loss to the Blue Jays. It was Altuve's third stolen base of spring training.

Fantasy Impact: If Altuve can stay aggressive on the base-paths, leading the American League in stolen bases like he did in 2014, he can make the case for top second baseman in fantasy baseball.

Jose Altuve went 0-for-3 against the Yankees on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was another off day for Altuve as he couldn't get anything going against the Yankees. There is nothing to worry about here as he's still a top-2 2B, and his spring average remains around the .300 mark. Draft him as you normally would.

Jose Altuve went 0-for-5 against the Mets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Don't expect to see too many games like this for Altuve as he's far more likely to have a multi-hit game than a hitless one. Altuve hasn't found his groove just yet, but he will certainly be great again come regular season, and you can draft him as a top-2 second baseman with confidence.

Jose Altuve goes 1-for-4

Jose Altuve went 1-for-4 with a single against the Pirates on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a quiet day for Altuve, as he uncharacteristically did not join in on the plethora of scoring that was being done by the Astros. However, he is a top-2 option at 2B, and has a batting average/stolen base combo that is unmatched in MLB. Take him in the second round of mixed league drafts if you want him.

Skipper A.J. Hinch discussed a real possibility of Jose Altuve being the lead off hitter at the start of the regular season. Altuve is the reigning batting title holder of the American League in 2014, hitting for an astounding .341 average. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Altuve is a supreme choice to be a starting second baseman for your roster. His consistent contact hitting and quick fielding poise will make him a precious infield commodity in 2015.


Jose Altuve steals a base

Jose Altuve went 1-for-2 (including a double) with a walk and a stolen base against the Mets. He also walked once.

Fantasy Impact: This is the kind of performance both the Astros and fantasy owners can look forward to pretty often. Altuve will likely regress some from last year's amazing numbers, but the speed and talent are real. Look for him as a top-2 2B in fantasy.

Jose Altuve hits an RBI double

Jose Altuve went 1-for-3 with a RBI double and a strikeout against the Nationals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Altuve continues to be productive and has shown no signs of slowing down after last year's stellar season. You know what you're getting with him: around 45-50 SBs, a fantastic average (think ~.315), and a good amount of runs. If that sounds like a combination you want then draft him in the second round (where he is currently going) and you won't be disappointed.

Jose Altuve goes 1-for-3

Jose Altuve went 1-for-3 with an RBI single on Saturday against the Braves.

Fantasy Impact: Altuve had another good day at the plate and looks to be rounding into form. He is a top-2 2B along with Robinson Cano and is going around the 2nd round of drafts. Be careful about your expectations though, as he is likely to regress in batting average, and is unlikely to repeat the SB total from last season.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-3 (including a double), with an RBI on Thursday against the Tigers. He also stole a base in the third inning.

Fantasy Impact: Altuve had a very productive day Thursday, as he works his way into peak form. While there may be some slight batting average regression from last year's MLB-leading .341, he should still be considered one of the top two 2B in fantasy along with Robinson Cano. If you want him you'll likely have to grab him in the 2nd round of your draft.

Jose Altuve held hitless

Jose Altuve did not record a hit in three plate appearances, as the Astros tied the Braves 2-2.

Fantasy Impact: Altuve is looking to keep his momentum going from an All-Star 2014 campaign that saw him break Craig Biggio's franchise record for hits in one season, as he ended with 225. Altuve has potential to be the top ranked second baseman in fantasy this season, and should be drafted within the first few rounds of most drafts.
