Springer went 1-for-3 with a home run and a walk Saturday against the Rays.

Springer crushed a first-pitch offering from Shane McClanahan to straight-away center field in the second inning to open the scoring. It was the second long ball in as many games for Springer since he was moved into the cleanup spot by Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo. The 31-year-old is hitting .333 over his past eight games, providing three homers and eight walks during that stretch. He appears to finally be a full-go after an injury-riddled first two-plus months as a Blue Jay.
