Jose Altuve 2017 Outlook


Recommended Posts

I don't see him doing anything less than .315/90/20/100/30 this year. He'll get Rs and RBIs in that pretty stacked lineup (if all the young studs stay the course), he's a good bet to win the batting title, and even a slight regression in HRs is still a great number. Steals should be steady, he's not getting old yet and the Astros like to run a bit.

I have a feeling the SB decline to 25 or so. I think last year was his power ceiling so I can also see that decline in HR.  maybe 15-18.

He's more of a second half guy, right?

He will be the consensus top 10 pick that has a down year.  Remember this post in September.

 

He won't be horrible, but won't be the Jose we have come to expect.

Seems reasonable after a 2/7 start.

I don't like him hitting 3rd at all. I don't get the manager insists on Springer leading off and his horrid SB rate. Altuve is the table-setter and while the power is a plus, he and Springer should flip.

I totally agree with this. Altuve should be the one setting the table with his plus speed at the top of the lineup. Springer is a horrid base runner who keeps running into outs. I would actually put Correa in the three hole and move Springer into the cleanup spot.

Based on your extensive analysis and commentary I thank you for dropping future knowledge :bow:

Agree and hopefully tuve's slow start might trigger this. He's perfectly suited for lead-off.

Just walked again.  11 straight times on base.  Consecutive games reaching base 5/5 times.  Sorry for bringing this up again but that's crazy imo.  Gotta love being Correa hitting behind him right now.  Raised his avg from like ~.180 to ~.320 in 3 games.  Patience truly is a virtue in this game.

Totally depends on the player we're talking about.  But with a player with Altuve's track record, yes, definitely.

Altuve should be batting leadoff, no doubt in my mind. 

 

Use Springer's power in the 3 hole

I think everyone and their mother realize this is the best way to use them, except the brilliant manager for the Astros.
