Astros | George Springer to begin rehab soon

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 10:32:34 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) could start a minor league rehab assignment as early as this weekend after he took batting practice again Wednesday, Aug. 26, for the third straight day. He will hit with the team again Friday, Aug. 28. He could be sent to Class AA Corpus Christi or Class AAA Fresno.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should have been stashed everywhere, and his owners will be happy to return him to their starting lineup immediately when he's back next month. He should continue to be a solid FantasyScore click when he returns, as well.

Astros | George Springer set to hit on field

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:33:01 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) will hit on the field Tuesday, Aug. 25, and Wednesday, Aug. 26, and then the team will decide what is next for the outfielder, according to manager A.J. Hinch.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to be patient with Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap), and check back for updates. He is expected to require a rehab stint, so he is likely a week away, at least. He can still provide a lot of punch for your fantasy team down the stretch, though. His return likely spells bad news for Colby Rasmus ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Jake Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap).

Astros | George Springer takes BP

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 16:51:32 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) took batting practice Monday, Aug. 24, for the first time since fracturing his right wrist July 1. Manager A.J. Hinch said Springer will hit on the field again Tuesday, Aug. 25, and then be re-evaluated. Springer could be playing in games shortly after that if everything goes well, but he's likely need a few minor league rehab games before coming back.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) to return before September 1. He should immediately be returned to all starting lineups when he's off the DL and back in Houston's starting lineup. His return will likely push Colby Rasmus to a fourth-outfielder role.

Astros | No timetable for George Springer

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 09:12:10 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) could take batting practice early next week, but there is still no timetable for his return from the disabled list. He's been out since July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will likely need to go on a rehab assignment before he returns, so don't expect him to be back before September at this rate. He still deserves to be held onto in all leagues, as he could put up valuable numbers for your fantasy team in a month if his wrist is fully healed.

Astros | George Springer close to taking BP

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 18:43:38 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) could begin taking batting practice next week during a six-game road trip to New York and Minnesota, according to manager A.J. Hinch. He has been taking dry swings with a fungo bat for several days and has also shagged fly balls, lifted weights and exercised. In addition, Springer said he has been playing video games because working the controllers have helped strengthen his wrist.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was cleared to resume baseball activities Friday, Aug. 14, and he has felt some "standard" soreness which can be attributed mainly to rust. He should remain stashed in all fantasy formats and is unlikely to return before rosters are expanded next month.

Astros | George Springer starts swinging

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:13:06 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) has started swinging a fungo bat, but he isn't hitting balls yet.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should remain stashed in all leagues. His recovering is going slowly, so you probably shouldn't expect him back in the bigs until sometime in September. Preston Tucker ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) may be squeezed out of a starting role in the outfield when Springer returns.

Astros | Offense suffering without George Springer

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 11:10:02 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) has had his absence weigh heavily on the Astros offense, which dropped from 4.59 to 4.08 runs per game since July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been a big part of Houston's offense, which has been a bit streaky at times. Springer may return in the first week of September, but be wary of inserting him in FantasyScore because he may not be at 100 percent.

Astros | George Springer still not cleared to swing

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:41:56 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) was cleared to begin baseball activities but not to begin swinging a bat.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) hasn't played since Wednesday, July 1, so he'll likely require a rehab assignment and projects to be out a couple more weeks, at least. Continue to stash Springer in all formats, though, as he was cruising towards a 20-20 season and owns high-end fantasy upside.

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 17:25:07 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) will have his fractured right wrist re-evaluated Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Not surprisingly, Springer's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) absence is having a negative impact on the team; the Astros are only 15-19 since he landed on the disabled list. Check back for more updates on his status later this week but keep him stashed in all fantasy formats.
