Álvarez or Altuve: Who Is the Houston Astros 2022 MVP?


The race for the American League MVP Award has only two contenders: Aaron Judge and Shohei Ohtani. Both have been absolutely remarkable this season, and they have left every other AL player in their dust.

After Ohtani and Judge, however, the next best players in the AL might both be Houston Astros. Yordan Álvarez has proven himself to be the most fearsome slugger in the AL not named Judge or Trout. José Altuve has had an unbelievable second half and is in the midst of one of the best seasons of his Hall of Fame-worthy career.
