Astros' Springer OK with Marisnick starting in center field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder George Springer has started 15 times in right field this spring and has yet to play an inning in center field. It appears the Astros are going to name Jake Marisnick the starter in center field, and that's fine with Springer, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“I’m going to go out there and I’m going to play the only way I know how," Springer said of starting in right field. “He obviously is extremely skilled. He’s extremely fast. I understand his range, he understands mine, and I think this spring has been good just because he’s so aggressive. I understand that and I’ m just going to let him run. He’s there when I need him to be and it’s the same way for him.”

Still, in the long run, Springer sees himself as a center fielder.

“I think I consider myself a center fielder playing right field, but I think anybody who has some speed considers that,” Springer said. “I’ve obviously had more repetitions there and kind of more game experience now (this spring). So it’s kind of one of those things where I can kind of also slow myself down more."

Astros expecting George Springer to run more in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder George Springer was a pretty effective basestealer in the minors, totaling 87 stolen bases in 287 games. He had at least 32 stolen bases in 2012 and 2013.

Unfortunately, as a rookie in 2014, Springer didn't get to show off his speed on the basepaths. While he was effective when he did steal a base, he had just five on seven attempts.

It appears, however, the Astros want Springer to be more aggressive on the basepaths in 2015, per the Houston Chronicle

"I think he can run a little bit more than he has in his first year in the big leagues," manager A.J. Hinch said. "I think his history will show that he can steal a few bases and be a good baserunner."

Astros' Hinch likes combo of Altuve-Springer atop lineup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch spoke Saturday about the benefits of having Jose Altuve lead off and George Springer bat second.

"I like that combo," Hinch said, per MLB.com. "Hitting after Altuve, a lot of times it's an RBI situation, even with him on first base or if he steals second or steals third. We need all of our spots to be very, very productive. The batting order, as fascinated as everybody is about it, it's one time through the order and then it's a little more random than people give credit.

"I think for [Springer] to hit in the first inning right behind Altuve, who does a pretty good job of getting on base, he's a real threat behind him to be put in a really good position. When the lineup rolls around with runners on base and the lineup flipping over, I'll take Altuve and Springer with RBI opportunities."
