Astros' Jake Marisnick Uses Urinals to Poke Fun at 5'6" Jose Altuve's Height

Come on, Jake Marisnick. Why did you have to do Jose Altuve like this?

Some people have underestimated Altuve in the past because he is just 5'6". Rather than let his height hold him back, the Houston Astros second baseman has proved his doubters wrong and turned into a perennial All-Star.

However, no matter how well he performs on the field, his teammates will always look to have some fun at his expense whenever they can.

On Tuesday, Marisnick, an Astros outfielder, tweeted out a photo of what appears to be the team's bathroom. The picture shows that Altuve has his own urinal—but not because he is the team's best player or anything like that. Because he is short.

In case you were wondering, there is no player on Houston's 40-man roster shorter than Altuve. Infielder Tony Kemp, though, is also listed as 5'6". Unfortunately for Altuve, Kemp is not projected to make the Opening Day roster, so for the time being, he will have to handle all of the short jokes by himself.
