Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve recorded his third three-hit game Wednesday, April 17, and he hit .385 (15-for-39) during the team's nine-game road trip.
Fantasy Tip: Altuve remains one of the only consistent offensive players for fantasy purposes playing in Houston right now. He makes enough contact to contribute a solid batting average, but don't expect many RBIs or runs if the rest of the offensive is stagnant.

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve is locked into the leadoff spot this year. He's the only starter locked into a lineup spot.

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with three singles Tuesday, March 19, and is hitting .356 this spring. C Jason Castro went 2-for-3 with a home run and is hitting .462 with five long balls and 11 RBIs. Both players appear to be in peak midseason form at the moment.
Fantasy Tip: Spring training results should be taken with a grain of salt, as always, but Castro's results are especially nice and suggest that he's completely healthy after dealing with knee injuries in the past that hampered his production. Altuve will be an excellent source for stolen bases at arguably the thinnest position on the diamond.
