Jose Altuve News
Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve will look to keep his career-long success versus Andrew Heaney going in Thursday's Game 4 of the ALCS versus the Texas Rangers. Altuve has largely struggled this postseason but did break out with a homer and an additional base hit in Wednesday's Game 3 8-4 victory. However, the veteran is seemingly in a fantastic spot against a pitcher he has seen plenty of in Game 4. Altuve is a career 12-for-37 (.324) hitter against Heaney with three doubles, a pair of homers, and a walk across 38 career plate appearances against the southpaw. The Astros will look to even the ALCS at two games apiece Thursday against a pitcher in Heaney who has pitched just 3 2/3 innings since Sept. 30.
Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve went 1-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 12-2 beatdown of the visiting San Diego Padres. The home run was the 16th of the season for the pint-sized Altuve, and he now has gone deep an impressive six times in just eight games so far in September while also going 10-for-33 (.303) with eight RBI and nine runs scored. The 2023 season has been one filled with injuries for the 33-year-old All-Star, but he hasn't missed a beat offensively when he's been on the field. Altuve is currently hitting .312/.398/.551 with a .948 OPS, 16 homers, 42 RBI, 13 stolen bases and 66 runs scored in 285 at-bats. He's a must-start when he's in Houston's lineup.
Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve had another incredible game at the plate in Tuesday's 14-1 rout of the Rangers. Altuve went 3-for-5 with three solo home runs and a strikeout. The 33-year-old has now hit five HR in his last two games, bringing his season total to 15 in 68 games played. Altuve hasn't missed a beat this season and has been a top fantasy player once again, slashing .321/.406/.563 with 39 RBI and 13 stolen bases. He and the Astros are very hot at the moment, so he should continue to provide a big boost to fantasy managers' lineups down the stretch.
From 2018-2020, Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve missed 75 games due to injury. While he was still a very productive hitter save for the shortened 2020 season in that stretch, a return to health vaulted him back into elite status after a dominant 2022 campaign. Altuve brought both power and speed to the table with 28 home runs, a .233 ISO, and 18 stolen bases last season. His 164 wRC+ was the second-best mark of his 12-year big league career while he hit .300 for the first time since the 2018 campaign. However, it wasn't all rosy for the 32-year-old, as he ranked in the league's fifth percentile in hard-hit rate, sixth in average exit velocity, and right around league average at 49th in barrel rate. Altuve is trending at a 44 ADP as a result of his 2022 success, and while he's a safe option at his position, it's fair to question what he can do for an encore given a 24 HR, 12 SB, .185 ISO, .274 batting average and 132 wRC+ projection, as per Steamer.
