While the performance doesn't quite put to rest concerns about the shoulder he injured Friday, as all four hits were singles, Springer still had a productive night. The 28-year-old is hitting .385 (20-for-52) with 15 runs scored over 12 games this month, although his one home run and two RBI during that stretch aren't up to his usual standards.

Springer exited Friday's game against Arizona after suffering a shoulder injury, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Springer's day off Tuesday was partially related to discomfort in his thumb, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Manager A.J. Hinch said Springer's uncomfortable swings during the ninth inning of Monday's game "cemented" his decision to give the outfielder a day off Tuesday. The manager was quick to add that Springer can play through any minor discomfort related to a thumb injury he suffered in August. Springer said he's fine and it's just the normal wear and tear one feels in September.
