For the most part it has been a tough year for the Houston Astros but the play of second baseman Juse Altuve has been one of the positives for the team. Houston may be without Altuve for a few days after he suffered a strained hamstring Sunday against the Indians.

Altuve is hitting .309 for the Astros this season and also has five homers and 23 RBIs. He has scored 45 runs and also has 18 doubles on the season. Altuve was 0 for 2 on Sunday before suffering the injury. He was replaced in the lineup by Brian Bixler who was also 0 for 2.
