Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said OF George Springer will play in the big leagues this season, but he may not be in the lineup on Opening Day April 1. "I think George Springer will be a starting outfielder in Houston this year," Luhnow said. "Whether it happens Opening Day or sometime during the season, he's a special talent." Springer hit .303 with a .411 on-base percentage and 37 home runs, 45 stolen bases and 83 walks with Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Oklahoma City last year. Springer will have to win a starting job, and the presence of OF Dexter Fowler will likely push Springer to right field.

The Houston Astros acquired OF Dexter Fowler and a player to be named from the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, Dec. 3, in exchange for SP Jordan Lyles and OF Brandon Barnes.
Fantasy Tip: Fowler's value doesn't change all that much with the move to Houston, where he'll start in center field. Lyles and Barnes are merely NL-only fodder. Lyles has room to grow, but Coors Field will negate any upside he has left. Barnes is more of a fourth outfield type that might struggle to find consistent playing time, like he did in Houston.
