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.
