George Springer went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk during the Astros' 8-3 win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

Springer may be a strikeout machine in his first season with the Astros (39.4 percent K Rate), but his power stroke has certainly far exceeded expectations. He is now sitting with 18 home runs and 48 RBI through 277 at-bats, which puts him on pace to clear 30 home runs at his current 15.4 AB/HR rate, so fantasy owners will have to be patient with his plate discipline (.235 BA) in order to reap the rewards of his unbelievable power upside while he adjusts to big league pitching.
