Best Astro (2012)

Jose Altuve

It's hard not to root for second baseman Jose Altuve. At five-foot-five, he's one of the shortest major leaguers around, which ups the cuteness angle, but it doesn't affect his range in the field. Plus the dude can hit, something the Astros sorely need, and he knows — well, let's say he's learning — how to take walks, which he can quickly turn into doubles with his base-stealing ability. He's a bright spot in another dismal Astro season, and he's only 22.
