Astros' George Springer: Jump starts offense Wednesday against Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Springer (2-for-5) led off Wednesday's game against the Rangers with a home run, his 14th of the season. He added another hit and scored a run later in the game.

In 16 games since Springer took over in the leadoff spot, and Jose Altuve dropped to second, they are hitting a combined .353 (48-for-136). The success of both hitters will seemingly keep Springer atop the lineup for now. Although he'll pick up a few extra at-bats, hitting first takes away RBI opportunities -- his solo shot Wednesday is a perfect example of that.

Astros' George Springer: Homers out of leadoff spot again
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Springer went 2-for-5 with the game-winning homer in the 11th inning as well as a double and a walk Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Springer hadn't been a quality source of batting average for much of this season, but that's changed dramatically over the last nine games -- he has six multi-hit efforts in that span, good for a whopping .450/.511/.850 line with four homers, nine RBI and eight runs. That's lifted his season average in a hurry to a rather helpful .290 mark. He's also homered in consecutive games out of the leadoff spot. Significant speed contributions might not be coming, however, as Springer is just 3-for-9 on the basepaths this year and hasn't even tried to steal since May 21.

Astros' George Springer: Goes yard twice out of leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer led off the bottom of the first with a homer and added another solo shot in the bottom of the fifth Thursday in a 4-2 win over Baltimore.

It'd odd to see Springer leading off because power has definitively been his hallmark -- he now has 11 homers, but has been caught on six of his nine steal attempts. He does draw walks and get on base, but Springer's ultimate place is in the middle of the lineup; unfortunately for those counting on him for RBI, the Astros have no shortage of low-average power hitters who they need to fit into heart of the the order.

Astros' George Springer: Leading off Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer will move up in the batting order and lead off Tuesday for Houston's series opener against Baltimore, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Jose Altuve will move down to second in the batting order as manager A.J. Hinch tries something new to spark his struggling offense. Springer is a career .290 hitter out of the leadoff spot with a .374 OBP over 212 plate appearances.

Astros' George Springer: Blasts grand slam in Saturday defeat
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Springer went 1-for-6 with a grand slam in Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Red Sox.

Springer blasted a second-inning, 3-1 Clay Buchholz offering 389 feet to left-center, plating Luis Valbuena, Jason Castro and Jose Altuve. He's now launched homers in back-to-back games, and has a whopping eight RBI over that span. Factoring in his solo shot against the Indians on Wednesday, the 26-year-old has three dingers in the last four contests, and has five of his nine gopher balls on the season in May.
