Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez taking time off in hopes of getting left knee and right ankle right. Rockies still hope to bring him back this year.
The Rockies have been the worst team in baseball since the end of May. Cargo and Tulo have taken their perfunctory summer vacations to the disabled list leaving the Rockies starting lineup in shambles. Their organization is one of the worst in baseball, and it's becoming clearer and clearer than GM Dan O'Dowd should be fired and Tulo and Cargo dealt for elite prospects. Keep an eye out for Cargo's timetable. ANALYST:
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.
