Altuve went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, two RBI and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to Cleveland.
After homering twice Tuesday, Altuve stayed hot delivering another pair of extra-base hits Wednesday, including a solo shot off Eli Morgan in the fourth inning. He's still batting just .220 over his last 10 games, although he has six home runs since July 1. The 31-year-old is slashing .278/.358/.512, leading the team with 23 long balls and 70 runs scored in 394 plate appearances. Altuve remains a significant power threat, though his speed has diminished with just four steals in 2021 thus far.

Altuve went deep in each of his first two at-bats. He led off both the bottom half of the first and third inning with a home run against Triston McKenzie but was relatively quiet the rest of the evening. The 31-year-old has gone a bit cold at the dish this month, slashing .220/.270/.492 with five homers, 14 RBI, nine runs scored, a steal and a 4:10 BB:K over 14 games. Tuesday was just his second multi-hit performance over the last 20 games, but also his second multi-homer tally of the year. Overall, Altuve is slashing .275/.356/.500 with 22 homers, 57 RBI, 68 runs scored, four steals and a 44:60 BB:K over 390 plate appearances. Altuve's lack of activity on the basepaths has certainly not helped his value. He consistently stole 30-plus bases from 2012 to 2017, but he hasn't exceeded 17 in a season since and is on track for under 10 for a third straight year.

Altuve will skip the upcoming All-Star Game due to a leg injury, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
The leg issue hasn't affected Altuve enough to make him miss the games that count in the standings, as he's sat just once in the Astros' last 12 games and is riding a six-game hitting streak. He'll elect to rest for the full four-day break rather than appear in his seventh career All-Star Game, but there's little reason to treat the injury as anything other than a very minor one unless it starts keeping him out of regular-season contests.

Robel Garcia will fill in for Altuve at second base, while center fielder Myles Straw serves as Houston's leadoff man.
