Player Notes
Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 against the Mariners on Saturday.

Advice: The two singles put him at 218 hits in 2014. It's been a breakout season for the diminutive second baseman, who has posted a career high not only in hits, but in average (.343), OBP (.379), slugging (.456), stolen bases (54), RBI (54), runs scored (82), etc. He's finishing strong for the fantasy playoffs, as September has seen Altuve hit .403/.423/.582.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

Advice: After going 0-for-6 on Thursday, Altuve bounced back with two singles and a double. He's now up to 216 hits on the year, the most by a second baseman since Rod Carew had 218 in 1974. There's a good chance he'll pass that number within the next couple of days. Altuve currently ranks first in the American League with a .343 batting average, eight points ahead of Detroit's Victor Martinez.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Advice: The line was fairly standard for the diminutive second baseman, but it was noteworthy for the fact that Altuve passed Craig Biggio for the Astros' record for hits in a single season. He's got 211 for the season, and the Astros still have a week and a half for Altuve to pad his lead. The 24-year-old is batting a ridiculous .343/.379/.456 for the year.

Fri, Sep 19 Rotoworld
Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with a triple and two RBI against the Indians on Monday.

Advice: Altuve has delivered five straight multihit games to push his average back up to .342. He was caught stealing tonight for the eighth time this season. Altuve was 41-for-44 stealing bases in the first half, but he's a much more modest 11-for-16 since.

Tue, Sep 16 Rotoworld
Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a double and a steal as the Astros edged the Mariners 5-2 on Wednesday.

Advice: Altuve had gone 0-for-7 in his last two games, snapping a 14-game hitting streak. You could have predicted tonight's mini-slump buster. After all, he is 10-for-24 (.417) over his career against Mariners' starter Hisashi Iwakuma. Altuve is slashing a pristine .336/.373/.447 and his steal tonight gives him 52 total.
