Latest Update Springer (quadriceps) took batting practice on the field prior to Tuesday's game Tue Aug, 26, 09:37 PM
Has an impressive combination of home-run power and base-stealing speed. Also displays great defense, complete with enough range to play a quality center field and enough arm for right field.
Flaws: : Needs to cut down on his high number of strikeouts, and start making a little more consistent contact, in order to maximize his big-league upside as a five-tool talent. Sometimes with him, less is more.
If not for Jose Abreu, Springer would be starting down the barrel of a Rookie of the Year Award. Obviously the Astros aren't headed to the postseason, so there is absolutely no need to rush the rookie slugger. He could provide a spark over the final month for those of you in need of power.Analyst: David Kerr
The Astros prized prospect has been on the disabled list for weeks with a quad injury. The Astros aren't going to rush him back because he will suffer a setback, like he did last week. He should be owned in all keeper leagues as Springer is a great power hitter that can rack up steals as well.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
That is a huge blow for Springer, because the team was saying he could return in the next few days. The Astros have no reason to rush one of their best players back from injury, especially since they have been out of the playoff hunt since the season began. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Springer participated in batting practice on both Saturday and Sunday, but the team has yet to announce he will officially be back in the starting lineup for the Astros after being eligible to make his return August 4. However, there have been no setbacks reported from either the team or media outlets, so expect his presence to be felt in the middle of the Astros order within the next few days. Analyst: Matthew Beck
