altuve

The Houston Astros awarded longtime second baseman Jose Altuve with a five-year contract extension on Tuesday.

The club did not disclose financial terms, but multiple reports said the deal was worth $125 million.

Altuve was entering the final season of a seven-year contract extension signed back in 2018. The new pact keeps Altuve in Houston through 2029.

Altuve, 33, has won two World Series (2017, 2022) and one American League Most Valuable Player honor (2017) in a 13-year MLB career spent entirely with the Astros.

An eight-time All-Star, he has batted .307 with an .834 OPS for his career, with 209 home runs, 400 doubles, 747 RBIs, 1,062 runs and 293 stolen bases across 1,668 games. He ranks first in Astros history in career batting average and third in hits (2,047), doubles, runs and steals.

Known for big playoff contributions, Altuve ranks second in MLB history in postseason home runs (27) and runs (89) and is tied for third in playoff hits (117).

The native of Venezuela is coming off a 2023 season that saw him bat .311 with 17 homers, 21 doubles, 51 RBIs and 76 runs in 90 games.
