George Springer gets first hit 'out of the way' in debut
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/17/14) Astros outfielder George Springer made his much-anticipated MLB debut during Wednesday's 6-4 loss in 11 innings to the Royals. 

Springer, who hit second for Houston, connected for his first career major-league hit in his second at-bat. It was an infield single.

"We're glad he got it out of the way the first day," manager Bo Porter said, per MLB.com. "It's good to have him in the lineup. There's definitely some things that could happen when he's on the baseball field, the attention that he draws on the basepaths, it will give the hitters that are hitting behind him some pitches to hit as well, but it was good to see him get that first one out of the way."

Springer scored one batter after his first hit as Jason Castro connected for a two-run homer. Springer went 1 for 5 with one walk, two strikeouts and one caught stealing in his debut.

"I didn't necessarily hit it hard, and now I can go play from there and develop and have fun," Springer said.

The hype on George Springer is warranted
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/16/14) Granted, no one can know how a top prospect will perform in his first stint in the big leagues. Some of the best players in the game today needed several stints to settle in. But while detractors point to George Springer's one strikeout every three at-bats as a potential stumbling block, even they recognize how big of a deal he could be.

I mean, the guy had 37 home runs and 45 stolen bases at Triple-A Oklahoma City last year. Yeah, he didn't quite make 40-40, but only four players have ever accomplished that at the big-league level. And the minor-league season is about a month shorter.

Springer's strikeout rate never caught up to him in the minors, where he compiled a .302 batting average in a little more than two seasons, so he could go the route of Matt Kemp, who for all his injuries, has overcome a high strikeout rate to compile a .292 batting average at the big-league level.

Even if he doesn't, the power and speed should be enough to carry Springer. As early as he's arriving, I'm expecting at least a 20-20 campaign. If he does that, you'll take a .260 batting average from him -- and again, that's thinking conservatively.

He hasn't even gotten an at-bat yet, and I already rank him among my top 30 outfielders. That should tell you something.

Astros promote premier prospect George Springer
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/14) What has been anticipated has become reality: Astros stud outfield prospect George Springer has been promoted from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Springer tore it up in exhibition play and followed that up by hitting .308 with three home runs and eight RBI with the RedHawks. He showed his potential in 2013 with 37 home runs and 108 RBI and 45 stolen bases at Double A and Triple A combined.

He will likely be thrown into the fire as a regular with the Astros.

Report: George Springer getting the call Wednesday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/16/14) A hot start at Triple-A has forced the Astros' hand, as the Houston Chronicle reports the team is set to call up top prospect George Springer Wednesday.

Springer, Baseball America's No. 18 overall prospect entering the season, was hitting .353/.459/.647 through his first 13 games in Triple-A Oklahoma City this season, after he went 3 for 4 with a home run and four RBI Tuesday.

Springer is likely being called up to play everyday with the hopes of boosting an Astros offense that ranks just third in the majors in runs scored. Astros outfielders entered play Tuesday collectively hitting .171/.247/.357 on the season.

George Springer will log 'significant time' in majors in 2014
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/14) Astros outfielder George Springer will open the 2014 season in the minors, but there are many who believe the highly touted prospect might not be in the minors for long to start the season. Count Astros director of pro scouting Kevin Goldstein among the people who share that opinion.

"I think George Springer is going to spend a significant time in the major leagues this year. He's very close," Goldstein told MLB Network Radio.
