Jose Altuve has been tearing up the Liga Paralela (Development League) in Venezuela. He had appeared in seven games for Magallanes and was hitting .433 (13/30) with six doubles and two round trippers. His OPS was an impressive 1.333. The only concerning area was he did have an uncharacteristic five strike outs in those 30 at bats.
In another update from beisbolvenezolano.net, it was learned that Jose has been called up to the big club. The current 2nd baseman on the roster for the Navs is Luis Rivas, the former MLB player who is hitting just .111 through the first 12 games. Altuve takes the roster spot of LA Angels farm hand, Carlos Colmenares.
