Astros OF George Springer (wrist) could end up on DL
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(7/2/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch said outfielder George Springer is expected to head to the disabled list with a wrist injury, according to MLB.com.
Springer took a pitch from Edison Volquez off of his wrist and was forced to exit Wednesday's game. The injury is of concern as it appears Springer will miss some extended time.

Astros give OF George Springer day off to rest Wednesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/24/15) Astros outfielder George Springer was not in the lineup for Wednesday's game at the Los Angeles Angels in order to rest, the team announced.
It was his first day off since May 12. Springer is hitting .411 with four home runs and seven RBI in his last 13 games.
The Astros are the favorites (-100) at Los Angeles on Wednesday.
|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.
