Jose Altuve’s Early Season Struggles Continue With 0-for-6

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has proven to be one of the sport's most prolific hitters over the past decade, but his ice cold start to the 2020 year is reaching a fever pitch following an 0-for-6 performance Sunday against the Angels. Having also left nine men on base, it marks just the third time in Altuves career that he has produced an 0-for-6 showing. Through his first nine games, his average sits at a paltry .158 with a .552 OPS, far below what owners were anticipating from the four-time American League hit leader. Equally concerning is his lack of hard contact to open the season, entering Sunday with an average exit velocity of 84.1 MPH, which would be the lowest of his career. His price tag remains sky high in DFS, but until he begins to turn the corner, owners can opt for more reasonably priced options.

Jose Altuve Tallies RBI Single In Win

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve went 1-for-5 with one run scored and one RBI as the Astros beat the Mariners 8-2 on Opening Day. Altuve tied the game 2-2 in the fifth inning with an RBI single and later scored on a Michael Brantley three-run home run. Altuve and the Astros have been embroiled in controversy all offseason but the offense already is flexing its muscle in the first step towards silencing the doubters. The former MVP enjoyed a fantastic second half in 2019 and this first game is a positive first step. Altuve should be in standard fantasy lineups every day heading into the weekend.

Jose Altuve Questionable For Opening Day

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is listed as day-to-day and is questionable for Opening Day with a leg contusion. Altuve left Tuesday's exhibition game after failing to slide while trying to tag from third base on a sacrifice fly. Manager Dusty Baker is hopeful the former MVP will be ready by Friday's opener. Altuve battled a hamstring last season but still had a fantastic 2019, hitting .291 with 31 home runs and 74 runs batted in, including hitting .325 after the All-Star break. The slugger's offseason has been marred with controversy surrounding the Astros cheating scandal, but he still is a highly coveted fantasy option at the second base position.
