Astros manager Bo Porter said Tuesday that he expects Jose Altuve to be his No. 2 hitter this season.
Porter hasn't settled on a leadoff hitter, but Tyler Greene or Marwin Gonzalez are considered the most likely candidates. Needless to say, neither are very inspiring options. Altuve made 84 starts out of the leadoff spot last year and 48 out of the No. 2 spot.
