Springer crashed into the wall in the outfield while making a catch on Tuesday. He was evaluated for a concussion, with Robbie Grossman starting in his place.
To replace Springer on the roster, the Astros are planning to call up Preston Tucker from Triple-A Fresno.
Tucker is hitting .320 in the minors and has hit 10 home runs and 32 RBI in 25 games played.
"Looks like he’s starting to get a little bit better timing, just through some at-bats," Farrell said. "It’s been start and stop for him this year with spring training and then, unfortunately, the dive at Pawtucket, but a couple of hits here recently after the first 10 at-bats or so just trying to get in the flow of things, but there’s no restriction on games played or at-bats to be taken."
Farrell is looking for consistency and production from Castillo if he's to be in the mix at the major-league level. The outfielder has hit .259/.333/.296 in 27 at-bats with Pawtucket.
"He’s going to get Friday and Saturday (in Portland) at minimum and if everything goes accordingly, there’s a chance he could, or the plan would be for him to join us in Oakland," manager John Farrell said Wednesday. "We’re projecting two left-handed starters against us in those first two games, that might be a continuation of his progression in terms of number of innings on the field, number of at-bats but Friday and Saturday will tell us a lot."
Victorino has hit .143/.302/.171 with two stolen bases in 35 at-bats.
