Houston Astros OF George Springer (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left quadriceps strain. In a corresponding move, 1B/OF Marc Krauss was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Fantasy Tip: It's retroactive to Sunday, July 20, but this could be a slow recovery and potentially affect his SB potential when he gets back. This cements AL-only asset Enrique Hernandez in center field. Deep mixed leaguers can give Robbie Grossman a try if they can only find an alternative via Houston. Krauss has some pop, and Hernandez has risen through the farm ranks the last few years, but neither is a recommended grab in mixed games.

Houston Astros OF Marc Krauss went 3-for-4 Friday, March 7, and is batting .455 (8-for-15) in five spring games with two home runs. Krauss' chances of making the roster increase because he is capable of playing both corner outfield spots and first base. He worked in the offseason to reduce unneeded movement in his swing and to attack the ball quicker.

The Houston Astros placed OF Trevor Crowe (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder Thursday, June 20, and recalled 1B Marc Krauss from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Tough break for Crowe, who was just recently named the starter in right field. Brandon Barnes figures to see more playing time as a result. Pick him up for outfield depth in AL-only universes.
