Altuve on 40-man Roster in 2012
If he doesn't make it there by the end of the 2011 season, Jose Altuve will almost certainly be on the Astros' 40-man roster by the time Spring Training 2012 rolls around. Altuve, 21, will be vulnerable to the Rule 5 draft for the first time this December. Of course, if he is added to the 40-man roster, he is protected from this draft.
