José Altuve News
Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve was placed on the injured list due to health and safety protocols on Wednesday. Altuve joins four other Astros who were placed on the COVID-List and the Astros have a day off on Thursday. Each player could return to action on Friday if they test negative but fantasy teams need to adjust accordingly in case they miss more time. Altuve is off to a strong start this season, slashing .318/.380/.455 with 11 runs scored through his first 11 games this season.
Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros loss to the A's 7-3 on Saturday. Altuve plated a run with his second double of the season and now is slashing .351/.405/.514 through his first 37 at-bats this season. The former MVP has been a fantastic table-setter for a potent Houston offense and already has scored nine runs through 11 games. Altuve's days of elite power from the second base position may be behind him but will be a solid DFS pick over the next few games.
Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve went 3-for-3 with two walks and four runs scored in the Astros 9-5 win over the A's on Friday. Altuve reached base in each of his five plate appearances and was a spark to an offense that posted nine runs. Through the first two games, the former MVP is hitting .571. The season has just begun and Altuve will try and stay hot heading into the weekend's slate of games.
While it was only a 48-game sample, 2020 was by far the worst year of Houston Astros second basemanJose Altuve's career. He did what most fantasy players never thought possible: posted a horrible batting average (.219). He stole just two bases and hit five home runs on his way to being a player that in retrospect did not deserve to be rostered at all. The Astros second baseman also posted a career-high strikeout rate of 18.6% and an uninspiring .280 expected wOBA. While there is really no reason to expect Altuve to post another bad batting average in 2021, he is no longer an exciting fantasy hitter given his lack of steals and questions about how much power he can produce. The departure of George Springer from that lineup also does not help things in the counting-stats department. Altuve is as cheap as ever -- he's going just outside the top 100 picks -- but he seems like an utterly replaceable player that is not worthy of even that depressed price tag.
