Altuve, 28, hit.316 (169x534) with 29 doubles, 13 home runs, 61 RBI, 17 stolen bases and an.837 OPS (.386 OBP/.451 SLG) in 137 games for the Astros this season. Named the 2018 Hank Aaron Award victor for the AL as the league's top offensive performer, Martinez was the only player in the junior circuit to hit at least.300 with 100 RBI and 100 runs scored.

The MVP favorite led baseball with a.346 average and.640 slugging percentage, the first Red Sox player to accomplish that feat since Ted Williams in 1957.
