Somebody test this guy. He's a midget, shouldn't be hitting home runs.




Looks like the Minnesota Twins didn't get the memo about not pitching to Jose Altuve in the first inning.

On Wednesday evening, the Astros' diminutive second baseman smacked his fifth leadoff home run of the young season, taking right-hander Phil Hughes deep to the opposite field to give Houston an early 1-0 lead at Minute Maid Park.

Barely one month into the 2016 campaign, Altuve is already more than halfway to last year's home run total of 15, which, for now, remains a career high.
