RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Altuve continued his growth in his sophomore campaign, swiping 33 bases and hitting .290 for the last place Astros. His batting average was bolstered by his absolute crushing of left-handed pitching: he hit .359 against lefties and just .264 against righties. He usually pounds the ball into the ground to try to get the most out of his speed. Altuve is a bit of a liability with men on base, but the team has not expected him to be a run producer. At some point, he will need to fend off Delino DeShields Jr., but for the moment, Altuve is the best the Astros have to offer and is the established second baseman for at least the next couple of seasons.

2012

The diminutive Altuve managed 200 hits across three levels last season, fueled largely by an impressive .408/.451/.606 line in the California League. Altuve has great speed and a little bit of pop, and though he can't draw a walk to save his life, he doesn't strike out a ton either. With an Astros squad under new management and in full-on rebuilding mode, he should be one of the team's lone bright spots while serving as the team's primary second baseman.
