Jose Altuve (2B) HOU - Jun. 10
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=784165

Altuve went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's 12-8 loss to Boston.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Three of the second baseman's last four hits have ended up beyond the fence. Altuve is up to 11 homers, 29 RBI, 41 runs scored and two stolen bases through 51 games. He's added a .296/.364/.479 slash line. With four long balls in his last 10 games, the 31-year-old has found a groove.

Those hostile Yankee fans better watch their mouths.  A former Yankee says the Rockies and at least one other team - maybe he meant the Dodgers, maybe the Yankees - were caught cheating the same as the Astros.  But I suspect there will be a wave of former players with stories...

His bad performances in the first two games at Yankee Stadium, facing down the hostile crowds, and coming out with a very good final game performance in that series seems to have released his demons.  Altuve is now hitting like the Altuve of old, except for the steals aren't there.  

Many of his numbers are similar to last season's right now.  Despite 33 games instead of 48, His HR and RBI totals are identical. and the hit total is nearly identical in 55 fewer AB.

Ian O'Connor describing the game yesterday:

The Yankees did a lot of winning things out there Thursday, starting with Altuve’s former teammate, Gerrit Cole, who surrendered only two solo shots to Yordan Alvarez over seven quality innings. Giancarlo Stanton and Clint Frazier homered. Gio Urshela turned a single into a double with some opportunistic hustle. And Gleyber Torres turned an Aaron Hicks infield hit into a victory lap for every man, woman and child who despises the shift, delivering one of the most fascinating dashes from second to third to home you will ever see.

On almost any other day, the Yanks take this game and sweep this series. But then Altuve stepped into the box in the eighth, one out, with the crowd of 10,000 chanting “CHEA-TER … CHEA-TER,” sounding like a crowd of 40,000. They had loudly booed the Astros star from the pregame introductions, and had profanely told him in the first inning what he could do with that little birthday of his that he shares with Willie Mays.

And then Green threw his fateful four-seamer toward Altuve, a pitch, Houston manager Dusty Baker said, “that was over his head.” What pitch isn’t over Altuve’s head? He is listed at 5-foot-6, which is its own tall tale. Not that it matters. Altuve sent the ball sailing over the left-field fence, and did a purposeful jog around the bases. He crossed the plate, pointed to the sky, and then walked into a receiving line of giddy teammates outside the dugout. Baker grabbed both of his shoulders and playfully shook him...

Jose Altuve (2B) HOU - Apr. 24

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=772987

Altuve confirmed Saturday that he had tested positive for COVID-19, but he now feels good, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Altuve was one of five players the Astros placed on the COVID-19 injured list last week, but the second baseman was the only one to test positive for the virus. However, the 30-year-old was cleared to work out with his teammates Friday since he has now cleared the league's health and safety protocols. Altuve said Saturday that he isn't sure when he'll be cleared to return to game action, but he thinks that it will be "pretty soon," Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Jose Altuve (2B) HOU - Apr. 19

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=771874

Altuve isn't expected to be activated from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of Tuesday's game in Colorado while he waits to clear MLB health and safety protocols, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Of the five players Houston placed on the COVID-19 IL on April 14, Altuve looks to be the only member of the group that won't be available for the start of the series in Colorado. Meanwhile, Yordan Alvarez, Alex Bregman, Martin Maldonado and Robel Garcia will fly to Denver on Monday, and all should be reinstated from the IL ahead of Tuesday's series opener if they continue to pass all subsequent COVID-19 intake testing. Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported April 15 that only one member of the Astros quintet was known to have tested positive for the virus, and given that MLB protocols require positive players to isolate for a minimum of 10 days, Altuve would seem to be the infected individual. If that's the case, Altuve likely won't be available until the Astros' weekend series with the Angels at the earliest.

Jose Altuve (2B) HOU - Apr. 16

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=771239

Altuve (COVID-19 protocols) is unlikely to return during the Astros' current five-game road trip, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Altuve was placed on the COVID-19 injured list along with five other Astros on Wednesday. While it's not yet clear whether Altuve has tested positive for the virus, manager Dusty Baker said Friday that he wasn't optimistic that any of the players would be able to return before the team returns home Thursday. Aledmys Diaz and Alex De Goti should continue to fill in at second base in Altuve's absence.
