Player Profile #158: Arismendy Alcantara | 2B/OF | CHC

Arismendy Alcantara isn’t a big guy. Listed at 5’10, 170 pounds he actually weighs a tough less than Jose Altuve (175 pounds) and a touch more than Ben Revere (165 pounds), but despite his stature Alcantara has some serious pop. In 70 games and 300 PA with the Cubs last season, Alcantara hit 10 HR. In 89 games and 366 PA at AAA prior to that, he also hit 10 HR. In 133 games...

Houston Astros: Top 10 Prospects for 2015

The Astros made a leap forward in 2014.  Jose Altuve stepped up as an offensive leader and George Springer showed he has potential.  The Astros still aren’t a winning team, but they’re certainly making steps towards it, with plenty of promising prospects closer to helping. Houston has addressed their bullpen this offseason, and despite Singleton and Springer graduating off...

So what does Cleveland have in Jose Ramirez?

As the hot stove season heats up, it seems the Cleveland player eliciting the most decisive opinions is Jose Ramirez. Which raises the question: just what does Cleveland have in Jose Ramirez? We know what Ramirez has done as a major leaguer. After playing the role of plus-baserunning sparkplug off of the bench down the stretch in the playoff race in 2013, Ramirez spent the first...

The MLB All-Stars got no-hit in Japan

It hasn’t been a good tour of Japan so far for the MLB All-Star team that has been sent over there. They’ve lost the first three games in the five game Japan All-Star Series, and on Saturday, they lost 4-0 and got no-hit. Hoo boy. Here’s a highlight video of Samurai Japan’s no-hitter. This wasn’t exactly a mediocre team that the MLB All-Stars put on the field. Stars like...

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, Houston Astros First Batting Champion

By Sam Henry Houston has been represented by a Major League franchise for the past 53 seasons.  The 1962 MLB season marked the inaugural season for the Astros organization, as the team first played under its original name, the Colt .45s.  Three years later the team was renamed to the Houston Astros, as the team moved into the Astrodome, which was the first domed stadium in sports...

Altuve's big season sparks Astros' improvement

HOUSTON (AP) Jose Altuve won the American League batting title and the Houston Astros made a 19-game improvement over last year to end a streak of three straight 100-loss seasons. Chris Carter's 37 home runs were tied for second in the majors and Dallas Keuchel showed he could be a front of the rotation starter. The Astros still aren't good, but they were much better in 2014 and...

The Rockies save their worst for last

It wasn’t losing a game in Chicago when the Cubs had to have a catcher pitch in the 16th inning. It wasn’t base-running blunders that made the hosts on SportsCenter chuckle on multiple nights. It wasn’t a bases-clearing wild pitch that seemed to crystallize the team’s lackadaisical attitude. It wasn’t even misspelling the name of their star player on the back of a t-shirt...

Little Jose Altuve’s Big Season for Houston Astros

It’s been a season of controversy for the Houston Astros. They showed some real promise in June, with rookie right fielder George Springer making a big splash, and pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh posting ace-like numbers. However, shortly after Sports Illustrated declared them the “2017 World Series champs“, things began to unravel. Top prospect Carlos Correa was...

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...
