Jose Altuve

  1. Austin Jackson, Bryce Harper lead All-Star snubs

    Bryce Harper

    You knew it was coming. In truth, I think those in charge did a better job of picking this season’s All-Stars than they have in recent years. Still, I have some disagreements, even if none of them are quite as vehement as last season’s. Austin Jackson (OF Tigers) – Jackson’s DL stint probably cost him…

    Astros second baseman Jose Altuve hasn’t appeared in a game in six days because of a mild right hamstring strain. But he was available for use as a pinch-hitter on Saturday afternoon against the Cubs and is nearly ready to return for good. According to MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart, Astros manager Brad Mills told reporters after…

  4. The final NL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 26, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the NL All-Star team would look like so. Changes to possible starters: Ryan Braun pulled ahead of Melky Cabrera for the third outfield slot, reversing last week’s reversal. Otherwise, the same old same old, with the changes only affecting downballot stuff: CATCHER Buster Posey, Giants:…

  5. NL All-Star balloting update: Melky in, Braun out

    Jun 19, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Bochy's Angels?

    Just like in Monday’s AL balloting update, one spot in the National League projected All-Star lineup changed hands this week. Melky Cabrera moved ahead of Ryan Braun into third place in the outfield. Cabrera is deserving based on his performance this season, but one can’t help but notice that Giants fans have been awfully generous…

  6. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 6, 2012, 6:51 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 7, Mets 6: The legend of Bryce Harper grows. A game-winning hit in the 12th inning. What say you, Harper? “I’m happy to get the W, of course. I’m happy to get that walk-off hit, but I don’t like going 2 for 7,” Harper said. “I don’t like striking out twice in one game,…

  7. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 23, 2012, 5:59 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 4, Padres 0: Tough break for San Diego to have Adam Wainwright figure it out and throw a four-hit shutout while they were in town, but I really do need them to go on a bad skid right now. I’m taking my kids to their first major league game when we go to San…

  8. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    May 18, 2012, 5:58 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 7, Marlins 0: Brandon Beachy: the best pitcher you haven’t heard of. He shuts out the Marlins on five hits and ups his record to 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA. Giants 7, Cardinals 5: Bad Cardinal defense and a little more offense than usual gave the Giants some runs on a day when Matt…

  9. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Rebuilding doesn’t have to be entirely depressing. The Astros — predicted by many to be a 100-loss team — won their fifth straight game on Saturday night in Houston, and their second straight against the defending World Series champion Cardinals. Houston is one game under .500 (13-14), good enough for third place in the National…

  10. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 26, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Royals celebration

    Royals 8, Indians 2: I keep hitting refresh on the scoreboard but nothing changes so, apparently, this is correct and the Royals actually won a game.  Billy Butler hit two homers as Kansas City beat up on Ubaldo Jimenez. Mets 5, Marlins 1: David Wright hit a two-run homer, giving him 735 RBI in his…

  11. Astros’ 5-foot-5 hitting machine Jose Altuve goes 4-for-5, now batting .377 at age 21

    Apr 25, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Jose Altuve

    Houston’s offense is one of the most improved in baseball and sophomore second baseman Jose Altuve is a big reason why. He came into today hitting .344 with a .918 OPS and notched four more hits in a 7-5 victory over the Brewers. Altuve is a really fun player to watch because he’s 5-foot-5 (on…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season.

  13. Running down the rosters: Houston Astros

    Feb 9, 2012, 12:30 AM EDT

    Wandy Rodriguez

    The 2012 Astros are pretty sure bets to lose 100 games, with the big question being whether they’ll top last year’s mark of 106 losses. That achievement will be tied to their ability to move the contracts of Wandy Rodriguez, Brett Myers and Carlos Lee. Ideally, they’d be able to sell off at least the…

  14. Astros may have interest in Ryan Theriot if he’s non-tendered

    MLB Network’s Jon Heyman hears that the Astros may have interest in infielder Ryan Theriot if he’s non-tendered by the Cardinals. The non-tender part sounds like a pretty good bet to happen, as the Cardinals have already pegged Daniel Descalso as their starting second baseman for next season and are “making progress” in bringing back…
