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

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.

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

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.

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.

Jose Altuve (hamstring) is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon.

Altuve made an early exit from Wednesday's game against the Rockies with ongoing discomfort in his right hamstring. It's an issue that has been lingering since last week, but the Astros are confident he won't require a stint on the 15-day disabled list. Marwin Gonzalez is at second base Thursday in Colorado.
Jun 18 - 12:08 PM

When asked about the possibility of Jose Altuve (hamstring) landing on the disabled list, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that the team "[wasn't] ready to give away two weeks yet."

Altuve exited Wednesday's game against the Rockies with a sore right hamstring, but the team is hopeful he can avoid the disabled list. Of course, Hinch might not want to lose Altuve for the next two weeks, but that's certainly preferable to pushing the injury and turning it into a long-term ailment. Altuve's status moving forward should become clearer in the coming days.

Jose Altuve left Wednesday's game against the Rockies with right hamstring discomfort.

Altuve was replaced at second base by Marwin Gonzalez in the bottom of the third inning. The injury isn't a new one for Altuve, as he's dealt with hamstring issues in recent days. The Astros should provide a better outlook for their second baseman after the game.
