Latest Update Springer will not play the rest of the year Tue Sep, 16, 05:07 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.
The Astros have no reason to rush back their prized prospect. Springer finishes the season with 20 home runs, 51 RBI, 45 runs, five stolen bases and slash line of .231/.336/.468 in 78 games played. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
With no playoffs in sight, there's no reason to rush Springer back, so the Astros are going to be content to let him take his time. That being said, he's probably not that far off, so a late-season return is still possible. If you can stash him, then he could be worth using over the latter half of the month, but if you're in need of that roster spot, then obviously you have to make the move.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
