Astros' George Springer: Back as DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (wrist) is serving as the DH and leading off Wednesday against the Giants, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Springer has been cleared to rejoin the starting lineup after missing five straight games with a strained right wrist. The outfielder, who is 8-for-44 with three home runs and 12 RBI this season, will face right-hander Trevor Cahill in his return.

Astros' George Springer: Could return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (wrist) could return to the lineup as the designated hitter Wednesday against the Giants, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

A strained right wrist has kept Springer on the bench for five straight contests. While it's certainly a positive that he's in contention to play Wednesday, the Astros do have an off day Thursday, so it's possible he sits for one more game in order to secure two more days of rest.

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

Springer isn't starting Tuesday against the Giants, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Springer took batting practice prior to Monday's game, but he'll remain on the bench for the fifth consecutive game. Myles Straw is starting in center field in Springer's absence.

Astros' George Springer: Takes batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (hand) took batting practice prior to Monday's game against the Giants, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Springer saw a hand specialist Monday that confirmed nothing is broken. While he'll remain sidelined for the fourth consecutive contest in the series opener against San Francisco, he's been able to take swings on each of the past two days.

Astros' George Springer: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (wrist) isn't in the lineup Monday against the Giants.

Springer won't start for the fourth consecutive game, but he took swings in the batting cage prior to Sunday's contest. Myles Straw will start in center field Monday, batting ninth.

Astros' George Springer: Takes swings in batting cage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Astros manager Dusty Baker said Springer (wrist) was able to hit in the batting cage prior to Sunday's game against the Athletics, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Though Springer remains out of the lineup for a third straight day with a strained right wrist, his ability to take swings Sunday offers hope that he'll avoid a trip to the injured list. Baker labeled Springer as day-to-day, suggesting the outfielder has a chance to return to the starting nine as soon as Monday against the Giants.

Astros' George Springer: Not starting again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (wrist) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Springer will be on the bench for a third straight game while he tends to a right wrist injury. Though Springer was supposedly available in a pinch-running role in Saturday's 3-1 loss, he ultimately wasn't summoned from the bench. Unless the Astros provide word that Springer has been cleared to resume taking batting practice before Houston opens its series Monday versus the Giants, his fantasy managers in weekly leagues may have to seriously consider holding him out of lineups.

Astros' George Springer: Available as runner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (wrist) was available as a pinch runner in Saturday's game, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Springer, who hasn't progressed enough to hit, sat out a second straight game due to a wrist injury he sustained Thursday. Myles Straw started in center field.

August 8, 2020 01:32 PM
Astros' George Springer: Remains sidelined Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (wrist) isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Athletics.

Springer received encouraging news Friday after his MRI revealed no fracture, but he'll sit out again Saturday. Myles Straw will start in center field and bat eighth.

August 8, 2020 07:56 AM
Astros' George Springer: MRI reveals positive news
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (wrist) underwent an MRI on Friday that revealed no fracture, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

That's positive news for the Astros and Springer, who sat out Friday's game against Oakland. Manager Dusty Baker did not elaborate on Springer's status for the remainder of the series. In Springer's absence, Myles Straw started in center field while Kyle Tucker batted leadoff.

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

Springer (wrist) is out of the lineup Friday against the A's, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 30-year-old sustained a right wrist strain Thursday, and manager Dusty Baker said he expects him to miss a few games, so it's not surprising the outfielder is on the bench for Friday's contest. Springer should be considered day-to-day, but he isn't guaranteed to see the field during the three-game set in Oakland. Myles Straw is starting in center field in his place, batting eighth.

Astros' George Springer: Suffers wrist strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer exited Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks in the seventh inning with a right wrist strain, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

He was replaced by Myles Straw in center field. Manager Dusty Baker said after the game that X-rays on the 30-year-old's wrist came back negative, but that he expects him to miss a few games, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today. The Astros will begin a three-game series in Oakland starting Friday night, so given Baker's comments, it seems likely that Springer will miss at least first tilt with the Athletics. Straw, who already has three steals on the season, could be in line for steady work for however long Springer is out.

Astros' George Springer: Exits in seventh inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer was removed from Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks in the seventh inning due to an undisclosed reason, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Myles Straw replaced Springer in center field.

There has yet to be word on the reasons for Springer's departure from the game, but his exit is almost certainly not simply a coach's decision. Springer was 0-for-3 before being removed from the contest.

Astros' George Springer: Hits in five straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Wednesday's 14-7 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Springer extended his hitting streak to five games with the fifth-inning blast, his third long ball of the season. The 30-year-old outfielder is 7-for-20 with two homers, 11 RBI and three runs scored during the streak. Overall, he has 12 RBI and four runs scored along with a .195/.340/.439 slash line in 11 contests this year.

Astros' George Springer: Pushes hitting streak to four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Springer plated a run in the top of the second with a sac fly, and he later scored both Abraham Toro and Kyle Tucker with an RBI double in the fifth. The slugger had a day off July 30, but he has been on a tear since returning -- he has gone 6-for-16 with a double, one home run, nine RBI, a 4:4 K:BB and a 1.103 OPS in his last four games.

Astros' George Springer: Blasts late homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a walk during Saturday's extra-inning loss to the Angels.

The 30-year-old launched a two-run homer in the top of the ninth inning to give Houston a 4-3 lead, but the bullpen was unable hold on during the bottom of the frame. Springer was off to a horrible start as he was 1-for-21 over his first six games, but in the past two contests he's 4-for-8 with a home run, five RBI and two walks.

Astros' George Springer: Plates two in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (knee) went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk in Friday's 9-6 win over the Angels.

Springer actually produced his two RBI with a bases-loaded walk in the second inning and a fourth-inning sacrifice fly. Both of his hits were singles. It appears he's recovered from a sore knee that cost him only one start, as he played all nine innings on defense Friday. He's still hitting a meager .120 with one homer, three RBI and a run scored through seven contests to start 2020.

Astros' George Springer: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (knee) will return to the lineup Friday against the Angels, leading off and playing center field.

Springer was out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers but wound up playing four innings off the bench. He's yet to get going at the plate this season, going 1-for-21 with a solo homer.

July 30, 2020 08:24 AM
Astros' George Springer: Enters as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (knee) entered Wednesday's game as a pinch hitter and played four innings in right field.

Springer walked for Martin Maldonado in the ninth inning and remained in the game. He was scratched from the lineup due to a sore knee, although a 1-for-20 slump -- now 1-for-21 -- could also be a factor in the decision to sit him. Houston is off Thursday before returning to action Friday on the road against the Dodgers.

Astros' George Springer: Out with sore knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer, who is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Dodgers, is dealing with a sore knee after running into the outfield wall a couple days ago, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Myles Straw will get the start in center field, batting eighth. Springer was 0-for-13 with four strikeouts in the last three games, so the Astros will look to get him right physically before putting him back in the lineup. Ideally with the day off Wednesday and Thursday's scheduled off day, he can return to the lineup this weekend against the Angels.
