Latest Update George Springer will take batting practice on the field today for the first time since going on the DL. Tue Jul, 29, 05:11 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 highly touted prospect has had his up and downs this season, but should be stashed away in all keeper and dynasty leagues. He's going to be a stud in the big leagues for years to come, so it is worth holding onto him in the short term because he will provided great dividends in the long term.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
It appears that the injury is not clearing up as quickly as it had been hoped too. Until he can start doing exercises on it there will be no viable time table for his return. Analyst: Ben Diamond
It was originally called a knee injury. While Springer is eligible to return on August 4th, it may take him longer to fully recover. The severity of the injury is unknown, but he'll likely need at least two to three weeks to rest. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Doh! Well now that's a bummer for fantasy owners as Springer's knee/quad issue he had from running into the wall a ways back has finally landed him on the DL. He probably should have gone on a while ago but he insisted he could play through it. Hopefully that didn't do any additional damage and he can come back as soon as he is eligible.
