Player Notes
Jose Altuve had a double and an RBI single in four at-bats Sunday to finish with a major league-best .341 batting average for the season.

Advice: Altuve talked his way into the lineup and wound up extending his American League batting crown lead with Victor Martinez going 0-for-3. The tiny second baseman finishes the year with a fantastic .341/.377/.453 batting line, seven homers, 59 RBI and 56 stolen bases. He was easily the most valuable second baseman in fantasy this season and among the most valuable overall.

Jose Altuve is starting at second base on Sunday after all.

Advice: Altuve originally wasn't in the lineup as an organizational decision in order to protect his American League batting title lead. However, the diminutive second baseman was passionate about wanting to play (and outrage on social media likely also played a part) and the Astros caved.

Jose Altuve is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

Advice: He has started 156 games this season but will sit the last one out. Assuming he doesn't make a pinch-hitting appearance, Altuve will finish the year with a major league-leading .340 average and 223 hits (if Victor Martinez and his .337 mark doesn't catch him).

Jose Altuve's RBI single in the sixth inning was the start of a three-run rally that led to Friday's win against the Mets.

Advice: Altuve finished 1-for-4 on the night. He singled in the tying run and later scored the go-ahead run in the sixth inning after Mets starter Jon Niese had left the game. The performance lowered Altuve's September batting average to .378 (34-for-90). He's had a spectacular season, hitting .342/.378/.454 with 56 stolen bases and 85 runs scored.

Jose Altuve turned in another multi-hit game Sunday, going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in a win over the Mariners.

Advice: Altuve is closing what has been a tremendous 2014 season with an equally ridiculous final month, as he's now batting .413 with 11 RBI and 11 runs scored in September. That includes 12 multi-hit games, with 10 of those coming in his last 11 games. The 24-year-old is honing in on the American League batting title, hitting .345/.381/.458 overall.
