Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

Altuve and two-hole hitter Marwin Gonzalez combined for four of the five hits that the Astros managed in the contest. The Mighty Mouse of a second baseman scored the lone run of the game for his team, touching home plate on a Carlos Correa sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. Altuve was treading in dark waters below his typical .300+ average, but he's heated up of late and is now hitting .304/.349/.432.

Jose Altuve went 4-for-5 and hit a walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth as the Astros edged the Red Sox 5-4 on Thursday.

It's the Astros' first walkoff blast of their very surprising season. Altuve also doubled and stole a base. He raised his average to .304, which is the highest he's finished a game at since May 21. This makes two homers and four doubles in his last seven games, which is quite a power surge for him.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-3 with two walks, an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base Tuesday against the Red Sox.

As he's done for years, Altuve served as a catalyst for the Astros offense in the win. He walked to lead off the bottom of the first inning, stole second base and scored later in the inning. He added another run and an RBI single later in the game. Altuve is now hitting .296/.342/.419 with 49 runs scored, 41 RBI and an AL-best 27 steals on the year.

Jose Altuve homered in a losing effort against the Rays on Sunday.

The All-Star second baseman finished 1-for-5 on the afternoon. He blasted a two-run shot in the fourth inning off of Matt Moore to give his team a temporary 3-2 lead. It's his eighth long ball of the season. Along with that, Altuve has 38 RBI, 45 runs scored, and 25 stolen bases.
Jul 12 - 3:56 PM

Jose Altuve went 0-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

There's something you don't see too often. Altuve has racked up 97 hits to this point, but he was unable to add to that total on Saturday. The Mighty Mouse of a second baseman is slashing a solid .294/.337/.406 this season, but he's a ways off of the career-best .341 batting average he posted in 2014.
Jul 11 - 7:06 PM

Jose Altuve went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Friday's 12-8, 10-inning win over the Red Sox.

Altuve's RBI single in the seventh inning scored two runs and gave the diminutive second baseman 35 batted in for the season. He's now put up back-to-back three-hit games and is working with a .303/.348/.424 slash-line for the year. With 90 hits through 74 games, Altuve is a near-lock to finish with 200+ hits as long as he stays healthy.
Jul 4 - 12:11 AM

Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with a HBP, an RBI and two runs scored in the Astros' 6-5 defeat of the Royals on Wednesday.

Altuve also swiped a pair of bases. He's hit in 10 straight games to push his average back up to .298. That doesn't quite measure up to last year, but though three months, he's given his fantasy owners exactly what they paid for.
Jul 2 - 12:56 AM

Jose Altuve walked and hit a solo home run in four plate appearances on Monday as the Astros topped the Royals.

Altuve slugged a solo home run to left field off of Joe Blanton in the third inning, padding his club's lead to 3-0 at the time. He's now on an eight-game hitting streak while carrying a .292/.336/.415 batting line with seven home runs, 31 RBI, and 21 stolen bases.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with, two doubles, three runs scored and two steals as the Astros' No. 3 hitter on Thursday.

The Astros liked Carlos Correa's work in the two hole while Jose Altuve missed time last week with a hamstring injury, so Altuve has been hitting third since returning Monday. It doesn't hurt his fantasy value at all.
Jun 25 - 10:49 PM

Jose Altuve (hamstring) is back in the Astros' lineup Monday.

Altuve missed the last four games with a strained right hamstring, but he tested things out and is ready to go. The second baseman has hit an un-Altuve-like .237/.284/.321 since the beginning of May.
Jun 22 - 6:37 PM

Jose Altuve (hamstring) remained out of the Astros' lineup Sunday.

The good news is that Altuve's right hamstring is feeling much better and he should have a good chance to return to action Monday. Marwin Gonzalez is at second base again Sunday.
Jun 21 - 1:03 PM

Jose Altuve (hamstring) is expected to sit out his fourth straight game on Sunday.

Altuve tested out his ailing right hamstring prior to Saturday's contest and said he felt "great," but the Astros are being careful here. "Very happy with where he’s at," manager A.J. Hinch said. "I’m going to go one day too long rather than one day too short, I can tell you that."

Jose Altuve (hamstring) is out of the Astros' lineup again Saturday versus the Mariners.

It's the third straight game he's missed with hamstring discomfort. Marwin Gonzalez will play second base and bat eighth. After a dominant April and May, Altuve had struggled this month, batting .250 with just one extra-base hit in 48 at-bats. Maybe the time off will help in that regard.
Jun 20 - 6:13 PM

Jose Altuve said Friday that he "feels great", though he remains out of the Astros starting lineup for their series opener against the Mariners.

Altuve said that it's up to the team when he will be able to return to the lineup and that more should be known after taking batting practice before Friday's contest. Altuve has been out since leaving Wednesday's game against the Rockies due to discomfort in his right hamstring. He should return at some point over the weekend.
