RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Altuve turned in a remarkable season for Houston, earning the second All-Star nod of his young career en route to winning the AL batting title with a .341 average. The 24-year-old led the majors with 67 multi-hit games and 225 hits, which far surpassed Craig Biggio's club record of 210 hits in a single season. Altuve's success at the plate can be attributed to an improved approach, which saw his contact rate (92%) rise by six percent and his strikeout rate (7.1%) dip significantly compared to the year prior. Altuve's .414/.566/1.013 slash line against lefties was particularly impressive, and while he only slightly improved his walk rate (5.1%), he terrorized opponents on the basepaths with an AL-leading 56 steals. His 86 percent success rate on stolen base attempts may prove to be an outlier, however, considering his success rate for his career coming into last season was 73.5 percent. While it might be wise for fantasy owners to anticipate regression from Altuve this season, there's no denying his value as an elite source of steals who will score plenty of runs and get on base at a healthy clip.

2014

Altuve logged a career-high 152 games for the Astros last season and delivered statistics that were roughly on par with projections. While his overall line (.283/.316/.363), run total (64) and batting average against lefties (.287) regressed from the previous season, Altuve remained an elite source of stolen bases (35). Still, his poor plate discipline (4.8% walk rate) combined with the lack of talent behind him in the Astros' batting order limits his upside for the 2014 season. It's still very early in Altuve's career, with plenty of room left for improvement as he will only turn 24 in May, but he will need help in certain areas to make a bigger impact on fantasy teams.

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.
