2020 Fantasy Outlook
Altuve failed to hit .300 for the first time since 2013, albeit falling just two points -- or one hit -- short. He shattered his career high in homers with 31, doing it in just 124 games, his fewest played since his 2011 rookie campaign. Altuve missed just over five weeks with a strained hamstring. He was put on the IL on May 11, slashing just .243/.329/.472 at the time. After returning June 12, Altuve posted a .320/.363/.581 line, more reminiscent of his usual production. Altuve's power spike came despite a decrease in both exit velocity and launch angle. He was graced by good fortune with some help from the ball. Altuve remains one of the best at his position; he's just no longer one of the best overall, primarily due to waning steals. That said, there's a question how long he can remain elite with his skill set as his Statcast numbers (average exit velocity, barrels, xBA and xSLG) are middle of the pack. Read Past Outlooks
