2022 Fantasy Outlook
Altuve showed 2020 was just a short season anomaly by tying his career high with 31 homers, though he needed 130 more plate appearance than 2019. Altuve's reliance on the Crawford Boxes to maintain power grew as he posted one of the shortest average fly ball distances of anyone with at least 30 long balls with all but one of his home runs to the pull side. A career high FB% helped drive power, but dropped his BABIP to .280, second lowest to the prior year's .250 mark. Altuve's 13.4 K% was ninth best among qualified hitters, yet his .278 average was only higher than 2020's .219. At some point, Altuve's dependence on Minute Maid Park with be a bug, it's still a feature, hitting atop a potent lineup in a park built for his approach and swing. Be wary of losing more batting average points as his foot speed further declines (down to 72nd percentile spring speed), and of course the steals aren't coming back. Read Past Outlooks
