Strikeouts could catch up to George Springer


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Astros outfielder George Springer has been on a tear lately, but there are still a few things he needs to do in order to maintain his success in the majors. 

Strikeouts have been a significant issue for the young outfielder in the minors, and those issues have translated to the majors. Springer's 30.6 percent strikeout rate is nearly identical to Chris Carter's rate. Even Adam Dunn is striking out less than Springer thus far. While Springer deserves credit for making adjustments, the league will catch on to his whiffing ways soon. He'll have to show the ability to cut down on his strikeouts if he wants to continue his current level of production.


Reassessing George Springer's value


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Astros outfielder George Springer has five home runs in his last four games, continuing a hot streak that has him hitting .343 (24 for 70) with eight home runs in his last 18 games. After beginning his career with a 13-for-68 (.191) slump, this season's most hyped prospect is suddenly living up to the hype.

But here's the hangup for me: Even during this hot stretch, he has struck out 24 times in 70 at-bats, or more than one every three. Considering he struck out every three at-bats in the minors as well, that doesn't figure to change anytime soon. Giving away that many at-bats is never good for a player's batting average -- it's the whole idea behind BABIP -- so even though this hot streak has Springer hitting .267 now, he might struggle to maintain a .250 mark in the long run.

Even more concerning is the lack of stolen bases. In nearly six weeks on the job, Springer has attempted only three, getting caught twice. He had 45 steals in the minors last year, so at least in that one area, he's a long way from meeting the hype. 

Certainly 25-30 home runs are valuable, and at this point, nobody should doubt Springer's ability to reach such a total. But if this hot streak has people thinking he's this year's Mike Trout or Yasiel Puig, it may be your opportunity to trade him for a player with a little more of a track record, like Matt Holliday or Jay Bruce.


George Springer homers again, scores five runs Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Astros outfielder George Springer homered for the fourth straight game Monday, going 4 for 4 with a walk, a home run, three RBI and five runs in his team's 9-2 win over the Royals.

Springer has knocked five home runs in his last four games while going 8 for 16 at the plate with 11 RBI. He also has a hit streak of eight games to his credit. Springer has started to kick things up a notch during his rookie campaign, hitting .268/.348/.500 with eight home runs and 25 RBI in 138 at-bats.


George Springer homers for third straight game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) It might have taken Astros rookie outfielder George Springer a few weeks to get adjusted to playing every day in the majors, but the highly touted prospect is finally revved up and beginning to make a huge impact at the plate.

Springer homered for the third straight day Sunday at Seattle and extended his hitting streak to seven games. After batting .191 through his first 17 games, Springer is batting .303 with a .395 on-base percentage, .682 slugging percentage and 1.077 OPS in his last 17 games. He also has one triple, two doubles, seven home runs and 17 RBI in that span.


George Springer smacks two home runs in return to lineup


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Astros outfielder George Springer marked his return to the lineup by going 2 for 5 with two home runs and five RBI in his team's 9-4 win over the Mariners Saturday.

Springer missed two games with a hip flexor strain after homering on Wednesday, and he picked right up where he left off Saturday, smashing a two-run home run in the first inning and another two-run shot in the fifth inning. He added his fifth RBI on a ground out in the sixth inning. Springer has picked up his offensive performance over the last few weeks, giving him a .246/.329/.431 with six home runs and 20 RBI in 130 at-bats.
