Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) was placed on the disabled list with a right wrist fracture Thursday, July 2. OF Alex Presley was called up from Class AAA Fresno in a corresponding roster move.
Fantasy Tip: It's a tough blow for both the Astros and Springer's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) fantasy owners, especially since this serious injury could cost Springer most, if not all, of the rest of the season. Hold him until we have a firm timetable on a possible return. Domingo Santana ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is likely to have an everyday role in the outfield now, and he's an acceptable add in deep mixed and AL leagues.
