News: Altuve went 2-for-6 with his fifth stolen base of the season Wednesday against the Royals. Impact: Altuve is slashing .276/.338/.345 through 15 games thus far, and while his run production (six) is a little low for a batter hitting third or fourth in his team's lineup, that total should improve as the Astros snap out of their hitting woes. Houston is hitting .189 as a team, which is worst in the majors.(RotoWire, )

News: Altuve went 2-for-3 with a double, one RBI and a walk against the Angels on Friday. Impact: Altuve is off to a real nice start this season, batting .385 with four RBI and two stolen bases over the first four games. He does have just one run scored, which doesn't say much for the rest of the offense, as he's been on base eight times over 16 plate appearances, but they should hopefully come around. The diminutive 23-year-old has the potential to finish as a top-seven second baseman this season, which says a lot considering the depth at the position this year.(RotoWire, )

News: Altuve went 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and his second stolen base of the season Thursday against the Yankees. Impact: After two straight seasons with at least 32 steals, Altuve was expected to be useful in that category, but the diminutive second baseman could also be a surprising source of RBI hitting third or fourth in the Astros' lineup. He leads Houston with three RBI.(RotoWire, )
