Jose Altuve is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Rays.

It looks to be a routine day of rest for the star second baseman, who went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, and two runs scored in Monday's series opener versus Tampa Bay. Alex Bregman is at second base and Yuli Gurriel is playing third base on Tuesday, with Tyler White drawing a start at first base.

Altuve is batting .424 with three homers, 22 runs scored, 15 RBI and seven steals over his last 23 games. He was a fantasy disappointment for two months, but he's justifying his lofty price tag lately.

Next up is a road series in Oakland. Altuve is hitting .462 (12-for-26) with three doubles, a homer and five RBI with a 1.173 OPS against the A's this season.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a stolen base and two runs scored in a 5-2 win over the Rangers on Thursday.

He had an RBI single in the fourth inning, scoring on Evan Gattis' homer, and the second baseman showed off his wheels in the sixth, bunting for a hit before stealing second base and scoring on another Gattis hit later in the frame. All three of Altuve's hits were singles, running his line to .338/.384/.458 through 64 games. He's got four homers, 31 RBI, 37 runs scored and nine steals -- all disappointing numbers by his standards, given what he's done in recent years -- but hit .328/.360/.496 in May, suggesting he's trending in the right direction.

Jose Altuve drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning to help the Astros beat the Mariners 7-5 on Wednesday.

Altuve also reached via walk and scored a run. His go-ahead single was golfed into left off of Juan Nicasio, and he came into score on a two-run single by Yuli Gurriel moments later. After a pedestrian start -- at least by Altuve's standards -- the 2017 MVP now has a .332/.379/.453 line over 63 games. You couldn't have possibly expected anything less.

Jose Altuve slugged a solo homer Monday against the Yankees.

Jose Altuve chipped in with four hits and two RBI Sunday in the Astros’ loss to the Indians.

He singled in each of his first two at-bats before plating George Springer with an RBI double in the sixth inning. Altuve added to his haul with a big eighth inning, driving in Springer with another base hit and later scoring on an RBI single by Yuli Gurriel. He nearly collected a fifth hit in the ninth but was robbed on a nice diving catch by center fielder Greg Allen. Had it fallen, it would have been Altuve’s 11th hit in as many at-bats. Unreal. Altuve hasn’t hit for as much power this year (only three homers, but he still sports an impressive .330 batting average, which ranks fourth in the American League.
May 27 - 7:37 PM

Jose Altuve had a huge game Saturday against the Indians, finishing 4-for-4 with a triple, a homer, two RBI, two stolen bases and three runs scored.

When we talk about five-category contributors we usually don't mean that they contribute all five categories in one game, but then again, Altuve isn't usual in many aspects. The homer was arguably the most surprising aspect of the line, as he's got just three homers in 53 games this year. The diminutive second baseman is hitting .321/.369/.447 with 26 RBI, 30 runs scored and six steals overall.

After the Astros were held scoreless through seven innings. Altuve tied things up in the eighth with a double down the left field line. The Astros would take the lead later on in the inning and wouldn’t look back. Altuve is off to a bit of a slow start from his usual lofty standards. While he’s hitting .308, he has just two homers and four steals through 52 games. The track record suggests that he should pick it up soon.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 and swiped his third base of the season as the Astros defeated the Indians on Sunday night in Houston.

While Altuve hasn't been running wild on the bases like he had in previous seasons, he's still hitting a terrific .316/.367/.420 with two homers and 20 RBI. From a fantasy perspective though, owners are surely expecting more power and speed out of a player that they invested an early first-round selection in.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 and scored a run in Saturday's loss to the Indians.

He singled to right in the sixth inning and rode home on a Carlos Correa homer. The second baseman's .312/.364/.418 slash line is good but the defending American League MVP is not hitting on all cylinders like he has the last few seasons. He has just two home runs, 20 RBI, 24 runs and two stolen bases so far this year in 47 games. He hit .346 with 24 bombs, drove in 81 RBI, scored 112 runs and swiped 32 bags last year.

The 2017 MVP had struggled as of late -- just 1-for-17 coming into the game -- but he was the hero in this one for the division-leading Astros. Altuve is now hitting .311/.362/.411 on the season, and he's driven in 20 runs with two homers and two stolen bases over his first 44 games.
