Astros' George Springer: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer went 1-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and a run scored in Game 6 of the ALCS.

Springer came to the plate in the fifth inning with runners on second and third and delivered a two-run single to put Houston up 2-1. It was his only knock of the game, but it jumpstarted the Astros' offense as they never lost the lead and forced a seventh game. Springer has been a major part of the team's postseason success, as he's hitting .283/.321/.528 with four home runs, 10 RBI and eight runs scored across 12 contests.

Astros' George Springer: Kicks off scoring in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Astros' Game 5 win over the Rays on Thursday.

Carlos Correa will get all the glory after his walkoff homer, but Springer was the one who got the scoring started for Houston with his solo shot off opener John Curtiss in the first inning. A free agent this winter, Springer should be headed for a big payday after slashing .265/.359/.540 with 14 homers during the regular season.

The 31-year-old collected four hits during Game 1 of the ALDS on Monday, and he came back Tuesday to power Houston's offense once again. Springer is 7-for-18 (.389 average) with two homers, one double, three runs and five RBI through four playoff games this year.

Astros' George Springer: Grabs four hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer went 4-for-5 with a run and an RBI in Monday's ALDS Game 1 win over Oakland.

Springer could hardly have set the table any better for the Astros, reaching base in each of his first four trips to the plate. The veteran certainly hasn't faded on the big stage throughout the Astros' run of success, as he owns a career .276/.362/.553 slash line in 53 playoff games, homering 15 times.

Astros' George Springer: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer returned to the lineup and went 1-for-5 in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Mariners.

Springer was given a rest day Monday by manager Dusty Baker, who was influenced by Statcast data that indicated the outfielder was a high risk for injury. There should be no such off-days the rest of the season, which has five games remaining.

Astros' George Springer: Statcast influences decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer was given a rest day Monday because Statcast data indicated he was a high risk for injury, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

In a series crucial to Houston's playoff hopes, the Astros played without its hottest hitter. Springer launched a pair of home runs Sunday and was 9-for-33 with five homers in eight straight starts since the team's previously scheduled off-day. "The Statcast data is kind of new to me, kind of new to baseball, and it's pretty accurate," manager Dusty Baker said. "We decided today would be the day." Baker cited similar data that indicated Alex Bregman was a risk for injury Aug. 19 in Colorado. That day, Bregman pulled his hamstring and missed three weeks. With just six games remaining in the regular season and a postseason berth to be secured, Springer should be able to play all six games if needed.

Astros' George Springer: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer will sit Monday against the Mariners, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

There haven't been any indications that this is anything other than a routine day off for Springer, who's started the last 22 games for the Astros, hitting nine homers and posting a 1.033 OPS over that stretch. Myles Straw serves as the center fielder in his absence.

The rest of the Houston lineup combined for just two hits. The 31-year-old outfielder is slashing .253/.345/.529 with 13 long balls this season.

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

Springer (elbow) will man center field and hit leadoff in Friday's game against the A's, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Springer sat out both ends of the doubleheader the Astros played Tuesday, but it turns out that will be the extent of his absence, as he will return to action Friday. Springer will be looking to get back on track after going 0-for-10 over the last three games he appeared in.

Astros' George Springer: Won't hit in doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (elbow) is unavailable to hit in Tuesday's doubleheader against the Angels but he is available off the bench for defense if needed, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

We already knew Springer was unlikely to start in either game of the twin bill. X-rays on Springer's elbow revealed a bruise, so he is considered day-to-day. Myles Straw is starting in center field and batting leadoff in Game 1.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
