Altuve, Harris To Represent Houston At All-Star Game
Second baseman Jose Altuve is a little guy with a big bat and bigger heart. He's now also a four-time All-Star and will start next Tuesday in San Diego for the annual MLB All-Star Game. Bullpen favorite Will Harris will join him, too.
Many baseball fans know of Altuve's skill set and his being a 5-tool player. The 5'6" stick of dynamite has become a face for the franchise in H-Town and will have his skills on full display.
Relief pitcher and unofficial (but pretty much official) closer for the 'Stros, Will Harris, also got the nod to go to Cali. Harris earned his first All-Star bid by moving from simple relief, to setup man, and now dousing the lights in the top of the ninth.
The Astros have improved to a 45-39 record, second in the AL West. The MLB All-Star game is next Tuesday, July 12th.
