|George Springer remains out of lineup Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/22/14) Astros outfielder George Springer is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the A;s.
Springer hasn't played since Saturday due to right quad soreness as well as a knee issue, the latter of which he had checked out with an MRI. He has hit .231/.336/.468 with 20 home runs, 51 RBI and five stolen bases in 295 at-bats.
|MRI comes back negative for George Springer |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/14) Astros outfielder George Springer told reporters he had an MRI on his knee, which did not reveal anything alarming enough to put him on the disabled list, according to the Houston Chronicle on Sunday.
Springer was held out of Sunday's series finale against the White Sox because of right quad soreness. He owns a .231/.336/.468 slash line with 51 RBI in 295 at-bats. His status remains uncertain Tuesday against Oakland.
|Quad ailment has George Springer sidelined Sunday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/14) Astros slugger George Springer, who emerged from a mini-slump Saturday with a solo home run, is set to sit Sunday on the road against the White Sox. Robbie Grossman is to start in right field instead.
Springer has been saddled with right quad soreness, but Bo Porter has stated that he doesn't believe the issue will require a stint on the disabled list.
|George Springer delivers 20th home run Saturday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/14) Astros outfielder George Springer went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 4-3 loss to the White Sox Saturday.
Springer put his team on the board in the fourth inning with his 20th home run of the season. Though he's only 8 for 50 in July, he does have four home runs this month. Springer has hit .231/.336/.468 with 51 RBI in 295 at-bats.
|George Springer 'a little sore' |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(7/13/14) Astros left fielder George Springer will serve as the designated hitter Sunday because he's "a little sore," manager Bo Porter told the Houston Chronicle. Chris Carter will take his spot in left.
Springer sat out Friday with knee soreness.
|Sure, he strikes out every third at-bat, but the minor leagues haven't been able to contain George Springer since the Astros selected him 11th overall in the 2011 draft. It culminated last year in what was nearly the minors' first 40-40 season since 1956. That was between Double- and Triple-A -- the two levels most likely to expose a player's flaws. So what makes you think it'll be any different in the majors? Matt Kemp, who so many scouts have said Springer resembles, kept hitting in spite of his poor plate discipline once he reached the majors, and Springer has shown more of a willingness to walk than he did. Even if Kemp is more the exception than the rule and Springer's one shortcoming condemns him to a .240-.260 batting average in the majors, his combination of power and speed gives him early-round potential regardless. Of course, he's not an early-rounder just yet. The Astros delayed his arrival last September and could use their offseason acquisition of Dexter Fowler as an excuse to do so again this spring. But that should only make Springer more affordable on Draft Day. The guy has already mastered Triple-A and, at age 24, is overdue for a promotion. He's a lottery ticket in the late rounds of Rotisserie drafts and should probably be drafted in Head-to-Head leagues as well.
