|Jose Altuve leaves Scott Boras|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/21/13) Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has dropped Scott Boras as his agent, according to MLB.com.
Altuve rejoined Scott Pucino and Wil Polidor of Octagon, where he left about a year ago for Boras. Altuve is still under team control through the 2017 season, so he won't be a free agent anytime soon. He won't be arbitration-eligible until 2015. Altuve is hitting .327/.361/.430 in 165 at-bats.

Jose Altuve has three hits in return
|After an impressive callup in 2011, Jose Altuve took his game to the next level in 2012 and became a reliable option in Fantasy. He batted .303 with five homers, 27 RBI and 15 stolen bases in the first half en route to earning his first trip to the midsummer classic. While his numbers would fall off slightly after the All-Star break, Altuve still finished with a .290 average and his 33 steals were 12th-best in the majors. Don't be fooled by Altuve's small stature. There's room for growth in the power department. Add his speed and ability to hit for average and you've got someone with decent appeal heading into the 2013 season -- especially given how thin the position is. Owners should plan on targeting the 22-year-old in the middle rounds of most formats on Draft Day. (Updated 12/12/12)|
