Jose Altuve voted Sporting News MLB Player of the Year for 2016

Altuve may himself be on his way to Cooperstown, as through his age 26 season, he has 1,046 hits, a career line of .311/.354/.437 and 199 stolen bases. The only second basemen with more hits at such a young age were Hall of Famers Roberto Alomar, Bobby Doerr and Mazeroski. This award is not about Altuve’s career path, though. It’s about this season, and this season, he was spectacular.


Voting by MLB players

1. Jose Altuve, Houston Astros-84

2. Mookie Betts, Boston Red Sox-64

3. David Ortiz, Boston Red Sox-41

4. Kris Bryant, Chicago Cubs-36

5. Daniel Murphy, Washington Nationals-26

6. Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels-22

7. Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies-20

8. Zach Britton, Baltimore Orioles-14

9. Corey Seager, Los Angeles Dodgers-5

10. Adrian Beltre, Texas Rangers-4
Brian Dozier, Minnesota Twins-4

11. Manny Machado, Baltimore Orioles-2

Is Jose Altuve Having the Best Season Ever for a Player of His Size?

As Joba Chamberlain said to the state trooper arresting him for DUI:  “[Yogi] might not be as tall as the front of your car.

The best seasons ever by short guys, as ranked by a short guy.

Getting Jose Altuve out a daily dilemma for pitchers - Houston Chronicle

He’s a freak.

“The No. 1 thing is you can’t really strike him out, so that eliminates a lot of outs,” Greinke said. “And he can kind of hit anything.

“It’s weird. It’s not like he has some super strength where if you make a mistake he crushes it. It’s just no matter what you do, he’s probably going to bat close to .300. And if you leave it over the middle, it would probably be closer to .350.”

The latter is roughly where Altuve’s batting average will sit entering this week’s All-Star break. The four-time All-Star is batting an American League-best .343. His multi-hit games (35) nearly double his hitless ones (20).
