Astros RF George Springer to have injured wrist examined again
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/29/15) Astros right fielder George Springer will have his injured right wrist examined again within the next two weeks, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Springer, though, is staying active by participating in cardio work, which includes tossing balls to coaches who hit ground balls during batting practice.
“Chasing down some fly balls, doing anything he can to avoid being stir crazy,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “He’s not doing anything really with his right hand.”

Astros' George Springer hits 13th home run of season Tuesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/30/15) Astros outfielder George Springer connected on his 13th home run of the season during Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Royals.
Springer hit the two-run shot off Danny Duffy in the third inning. It was his only hit in three at-bats during the game. He also walked once and scored two runs.
Prior to Tuesday's performance, Springer was hitting .071 with one RBI in his last eight games.
|2014 summary: Upon his April callup to the majors, George Springer didn't produce much for the first three weeks, but once he started hitting home runs, he didn't stop. Over a 59-game stretch with the Astros, Springer hit 20 home runs while batting .233 and posting a .354 on-base percentage. As the weeks progressed, Springer struck out at an increasing rate, but we never got a chance to see if he could reverse the trend. Springer went on the disabled list with a quad injury in late July, and he never came back from the injury. |
Playing time status: Springer is fully healthy and is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.
2015 outlook: Even though Springer strikes out at an excessive rate, he is not necessarily doomed to a low batting average. Despite dealing with a knee injury, Springer got 13 infield hits in 295 at-bats, which helped to keep his batting average from scraping the Mendoza Line. With better health, Springer should not only lift his batting average, but also improve substantially upon his five stolen bases. And then there's the 40-homer potential he has already shown at the major league level. Conservatively, you could rank Springer within your top 25 outfielders, but if everything falls into place, he could finish among the top 10. If Springer is still on the board after the first 75 players are taken, it's time to give him a home.
