Astros | Jose Altuve resting Saturday

Sat, 07 May 2016 13:37:41 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve is out of the lineup Saturday, May 7, with OF George Springer leading off. 2B Marwin Gonzalez is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Springer is a daily consideration, but his RBI upside is less at leadoff. Gonzalez has a .213-2-5 line on the year, and he's not a great flyer against Nathan Karns.

Astros | Houston hitters lead in strikeouts

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:25:42 -0700

The Houston Astros lead all of the majors with 202 strikeouts heading into action Tuesday, April 26. OF George Springer leads Houston with 24 strikeouts on the year so far.

Fantasy Tip: This was a problem for Houston last year, too. They make little contact but can hit the ball out of the park with the best of them, as they rank second in the AL in home runs (27). At least right now, using a middling pitcher with strikeout upside is a nice value play in daily contests.

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 15:49:37 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer hit his second home run in as many games Sunday, April 17, in a 5-4 win over the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Springer has done a good job following up on his .276-16-41 season of a year ago. He has three homers through Sunday and should be considered as a backup outfielder on your fantasy teams. He may not be strong enough to be in your starting three, but Springer does merit a roster spot.

Astros | Houston not talking George Springer

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 10:27:04 -0800

The Houston Astros are not talking about OF George Springer in any deals, according to a source.

Houston Astros OF George Springer went 2-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base during the Astros' 6-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, Oct. 3.
