Carlos Correa/Jose Altuve

It’s admirable the work these two mid-infielders put in and how well they work together.

Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve are impressive both offensively and with their gloves.

Correa was the 2015 American League Rookie of the Year after a .279/.345/.512 line with 22 home runs and 68 RBI’s. It’s looking like it could be another strong situation for the 22-year-old heading into 2017 if his projections hold true. FanGraphs Steamer has him¬†at a .278/.359/.470 line which is an increase in all categories besides his on-base percentage.

Jose Altuve needs no introduction.

The second baseman was one of several bringing the power surge to the position last season. But Altuve still managed to stick out.

The four-time All-Star was third in votes for American League MVP last season but was ultimately named 2016 Major League Player of the Year. Not a bad scenario.

Altuve finished the season with a league-leading .338 batting average and 216 hits.

Do I need to tell you anymore how awesome he is? Expect another phenomenal season from him.
