    • Astros' Jose Altuve: Takes home AL MVP honors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Altuve was named the American League's Most Valuable Player on Thursday. Altuve's ascension to stardom took another major leap forward in 2017 as the 27-year-old became the first Astro to bring home MVP honors since Jeff Bagwell was crowned NL MVP in 1994. Altuve led the American League in hits (204) for the fourth consecutive season and won the league's batting title with a career-high .346 average. His 24 home runs were also a career high and the superstar second baseman is the consensus No. 2 player (after Mike Trout) heading into 2018 fantasy drafts. The man can do it all.

    • Astros' Jose Altuve: Astros pick up option
      By RotoWire Staff

      Houston picked up its club option of $6 million for Altuve ahead of the 2018 season, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet reports. No surprise here as the Astros will gladly pick up Altuve's modest contract for next season, with another club option on the horizon the following year as well ($6.5 million). During the regular season, Altuve hit .346/.410/.547 with 24 home runs and 81 RBI, and then helped the team bring a World Series title to Houston.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Altuve went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Thursday's 12-2 win at Fenway Park. Altuve bolstered his AL MVP case with this three-hit effort, though Aaron Judge of the Yankees kept pace by mashing his 51st home run of the season over in New York. The diminutive second baseman is slashing .350/.415/.555 and ranks second in MLB to Colorado's Charlie Blackmon with 203 hits.

    • Astros' Jose Altuve: Reaches 200 hits
      By RotoWire Staff

      Altuve went 1-for-4 with two runs scored in Wednesday's 12-2 win over Texas. Altuve, who returned from a one-game absence due to a forearm injury, knocked his 200th hit of the season, making it four years in a row he's accomplished that feat. The Astros head into a season-ending four-game set in Boston with a chance to overtake Cleveland for the best record in the AL. That suggests Altuve will be in the lineup as long as they have a shot.

    • Astros' Jose Altuve: Back in action
      By RotoWire Staff

      Altuve (forearm) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers. A hit-by-pitch forced Altuve from Monday's game, but all tests on the forearm were negative and Altuve is set to return after missing just one start. The 27-year-old has been an elite fantasy contributor again this season, matching his career-high home run total from a year ago while surpassing 30 steals for a sixth straight season.
