Where Did Jose Altuve’s 2014 Come From?

Jose Altuve Shows Off Jump Swing, Makes Contact On Pitch Over His Head (GIF)

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve could have used a stepladder Monday night. The 5-foot-5 All-Star is having a monster season, leading the league in batting average (.345) and hits (221) while ranking third in steals (54). But he’s also the shortest active player in Major League Baseball, so sometimes he has to get a little wild and crazy in the batter’s box to make...

WATCH: Houston Astros Jose Altuve Invents the Jump Swing--and it Works (sort of)!

WATCH: Jose Altuve jumped to try and hit a pitch

Is There a MVP-Case for Jose Altuve?

There’s no question that Jose Altuve is having an amazing season. What’s amazing, though, is how little attention it is receiving. Although he plays in a larger-sized market in Houston, his publicity is really suffering from being on one of the worst teams in baseball. But is there a case for Altuve to be the MVP? It might not be as wild as you think. Batting .339/.376/.450 is...
