Carlos Gonzalez (finger) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Finally. It was tough to sit by and watch the Rockies sit on their hands, hoping that CarGo could play through the injury. If anything, their indecision may have made it worse. Nevertheless, Gonzalez is out for the next 15 days and shouldn't need more than that so long as there is no structural damage to the finger. Corey Dickerson should see the biggest increase in playing time with Gonzalez on the shelf.ANALYST: Howard Bender
George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Springer has now collected two hits in three straight games which has helped raise his average from .195 to .214 on the season. A concussion sidelined Springer in early May but he has played well since his return, hitting .282 with six runs, two home runs and four RBI. Fantasy owners will have to deal with the low batting average as Springer is once again on pace to rank among the league leaders in strikeouts but he’s already reached double-digit stole bases and could flirt with a 30/30 season given his potential.
