Leading off for the first time this season, Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a run scored on Friday.
The Astros tried to shake things up a little bit by moving Altuve into Dexter Fowler's spot, batting Fowler second and going with George Springer in the cleanup spot. And they scored three runs, so that's an improvement. Altuve has a little more fantasy value hitting leadoff than he does third or fourth, partly because the Astros' No. 3 and 4 hitters aren't going to hit with many guys on base anyway.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-3 with an RBI on Friday against the Angels.

Altuve was credited with an RBI after drawing a bases-loaded walk against Garrett Richards. It was the only run of the night for Houston. Standing at 5-foot-6, Altuve isn't your typical middle-of-the-order hitter, but he's expected to hit third or fourth on most days this season.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

Batting third, Altuve drove in a run on a first inning single before doubling in a run the next inning. Altuve also stole his first base of the season and scored a run. The 23-year-old second baseman remains the most valuable fantasy asset in Houston.

Jose Altuve will hit third in Tuesday's season opener against the Yankees.

Altuve is expected to hit cleanup against right-handers this season, but he's in the No. 3 spot with left-hander CC Sabathia on the mound for New York. Jason Castro will hit fourth Tuesday.

Astros manager Bo Porter plans to hit Jose Altuve cleanup against right-handers this season.

He'll move up to the three spot versus left-handers, with Jason Castro occupying the four-hole. Robbie Grossman will hit second, which is the spot Altuve has been in for most of his career. It's certainly unconventional to have a 5-foot-5, 175-pounder hitting cleanup, but Porter explains the move logically by saying he's "just trying to get as many guys on base in front of our, arguably, our best two hitters, Jason and Altuve."

Jose Altuve will not play in the Venezuelan Winter League.

Altuve has played winter ball in recent years, but he has opted against doing so this winter and will instead return to Houston in January to focus on getting ready for 2014. The 23-year-old hit .283/.316/.363 with five home runs, 52 RBI, and 35 stolen bases in 152 games this past season.

Jose Altuve finished 3-for-4 in the Astros' loss to the Angels on Saturday night in Houston.

Altuve has been smoking-hot in September -- already with nine multi-hit games -- and has the ability to keep raking through the end of the regular season. He's worth grabbing in fantasy leagues where he was dropped by impatient owners.

Jose Altuve continued his hot-hitting ways, going 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Athletics.
