Latest Update Astros placed OF George Springer on 15-day DL Wed Jul, 23, 04:20 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.
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.

Confirming my update earlier which stated Springer was out of tonight's lineup due to injury. If you are Springer owner this may be a cause for concern as this is now back to back games he has missed. Stick with Fantasy Alarm to see if Springer is in the starting lineup for the Astros next game. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
This will be his second straight game where he sits out due to knee and quad soreness. Springer on the season is hitting just .231 but with 45 runs, 20 home runs, 51 RBI and five stolen bases.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
That is great news for the budding superstar for the Astros. The MRI was more of a precaution as Springer started in the two previous games before sitting on Sunday. Start him if you got him because it doesn't sound like SPringer is going to miss much time.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
