JOSE ALTUVE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Player Profile #33: Jose Altuve | 2B | HOU

The 2015 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide is here! Get your copy for FREE! Well, that was an unexpected surprise. Entering 2014 we thought we had Jose Altuve pegged. A short, high-contact hitter with a little pop and good speed, Altuve figued to be a near-.300 player with 30-40 SB speed and 90-run potential hitting at the top of an all-or-nothing Astros offense. Instead he stole...

Astros’ Jose Altuve Promotion Fails on Twitter

The Houston Astros Twitter feed was feeling quite generous on this beautiful Thursday, offering up a chance to win a baseball autographed by National League batting champion Jose Altuve. The only catch being the promo tweet had to reach 1,000 retweets: Seemed simple enough, right? Fans go nuts for free crap all the time, and this particular free item even holds some value—so...

Where Did Jose Altuve’s 2014 Come From?

We’re not always right. In fact, we’re wrong a lot. We’re even doing a whole offseason series about all the times we were right and wrong. But whether we’re right or wrong, it’s always great to look back at why you were right or wrong so you can be more right and less wrong in the future, right? To that end, our friends at numberFire have decided to look back at Jose Altuve’s...

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: Jose Altuve jumped to try and hit a pitch

In case you weren’t aware, Jose Altuve is short. How short? Well…. Can you blame him for trying? The guy hits EVERYTHING. http://t.co/mImMfuOzgO — MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) September 23, 2014 That’s absurdity at its most absurd. The soon to be AL batting champion finished with just one hit in Houston’s 4-3 loss to Texas on Monday night. The post Jose Altuve jumped trying to...

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...

Houston Astros, a team on the rise

Astros Fan Wants Jose Altuve to Steal Her Second Base

Jose Altuve has been one of the very few bright spots for the Houston Astros since his debut in 2011 and the speedy second baseman is putting together another big-time season, one that might bring a batting title to the franchise.
