Astros expecting George Springer to run more in 2015

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/15) Astros outfielder George Springer was a pretty effective basestealer in the minors, totaling 87 stolen bases in 287 games. He had at least 32 stolen bases in 2012 and 2013.

Unfortunately, as a rookie in 2014, Springer didn't get to show off his speed on the basepaths. While he was effective when he did steal a base, he had just five on seven attempts.

It appears, however, the Astros want Springer to be more aggressive on the basepaths in 2015, per the Houston Chronicle

"I think he can run a little bit more than he has in his first year in the big leagues," manager A.J. Hinch said. "I think his history will show that he can steal a few bases and be a good baserunner."

Astros' Hinch likes combo of Altuve-Springer atop lineup

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/21/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch spoke Saturday about the benefits of having Jose Altuve lead off and George Springer bat second.

"I like that combo," Hinch said, per MLB.com. "Hitting after Altuve, a lot of times it's an RBI situation, even with him on first base or if he steals second or steals third. We need all of our spots to be very, very productive. The batting order, as fascinated as everybody is about it, it's one time through the order and then it's a little more random than people give credit.

"I think for [Springer] to hit in the first inning right behind Altuve, who does a pretty good job of getting on base, he's a real threat behind him to be put in a really good position. When the lineup rolls around with runners on base and the lineup flipping over, I'll take Altuve and Springer with RBI opportunities."

George Springer has two-homer day for Astros

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/13/15) Astros right fielder George Springer hit his first two home runs of the spring on Friday. 

Springer went 2-for-3 with a solo shot off of Doug Fister in the third inning and another off of Sammy Solis in the fifth. 

"Oh man, was that great to see or what?" Astros manager A.J. Hinch said to MLB.com's Bill Ladson. "He's been working real hard trying to get his timing right. It was good swings, good barrel contact like we like. Not many people can do what he did."

Astros OF George Springer plans to work on 'everything' this spring

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/15) The Astros were active this offseason in reshaping their roster and added a few bats to the lineup that could provide more protection for players like Jose Altuve and George Springer. Some of the key offseason acquisitions include Evan Gattis, Jed Lowrie and Colby Rasmus.

"It's been exciting," Springer said, per MLB.com. "There's obviously some guys who have done some things. I've played against pretty much all of them. It's exciting to have them here.

"They're going to help the team. Those guys, obviously, can hit the ball out of the park on any swing. It's obviously going to be great to have them -- and obviously with Jose, he's always on base. Hopefully between [Chris] Carter, Gattis and everybody else, we'll hit them out of the ballpark this year."

A change for Springer this spring is that he won't have to compete for a spot in the starting lineup. He will be a key cog in Houston's lineup, so this spring he will be focused on refining "everything."

"There isn't one aspect of this game I can fully understand," he said. "It's one of those things you go into the offseason and you can improve upon the success and the failures."

Springer or Marisnick could start in center field for Astros

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/15) The trade of Dexter Fowler opens up a starting job in center field for the Astros. Jake Marisnick or George Springer will likely start in center field, with the other playing in right field. Alex Presley and Robbie Grossman could also be backup options in center field.

"It's something [manager] A.J. [Hinch] and the staff is going to have to work through," general manager Jeff Luhnow said, per MLB.com. "Marisnick is a natural center fielder, and it's possible he's our opening day center fielder. Who knows? I think it's nice having guys with versatility."
