Astros | George Springer sets table nicely

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:23:18 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks, a run scored and an RBI Saturday, July 23, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He was also caught stealing for the seventh time this season.

Fantasy Tip: Springer did a great job setting the table at the top of the Houston lineup. Overall he has just a .260 batting average, and he isn't your prototypical leadoff hitter with just six stolen bases. But he is a solid source of power and a must-start fantasy option across most formats.
