Astros | George Springer heating up

Mon, 25 May 2015 19:27:17 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer had a season-high three hits, including his first home run in his last 33 at-bats, in a 4-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles Monday, May 25. He has raised his batting average from .185 to .224 over the last six games.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has been a boom-or-bust option up to this point, but he has been swinging a steadier bat of late. If there was ever a time to roll the dice on Springer's upside at FantasyScore, it is during this hot streak.

Astros | George Springer hitting leadoff

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:04:01 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer will hit out of the leadoff position Sunday, May 24, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) had hit a double in three consecutive games before going 0-for-4 Saturday. Springer continues to strikeout rather frequently, but the upside is undeniable. Springer generally struggles against right-handed pitching, but he can be used as a GPP flier against a shaky Anibal Sanchez.

Wed, 13 May 2015 22:50:21 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (concussion) returned to the lineup Wednesday, May 14, against the San Francisco Giants. He went 1-for-3 with a tiebreaking solo homer and a walk.

Astros | George Springer batting fourth vs. Giants

Wed, 13 May 2015 14:15:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros OF George Springer is batting fourth and playing right field against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is a high-risk, high-reward daily fantasy option, because of his lack of consistency at the dish. FantasyScore players would be wise to allow him a game or two to wet his feet again at the highest level, especially given his slow start, missed time and high cap hit.

Astros | George Springer returning Wednesday

Wed, 13 May 2015 08:59:37 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (concussion) will return from the 7-day concussion disabled list Wednesday, May 13. He went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts in his only rehab game with Class AA Corpus Christi (Texas) Tuesday, May 12. He is hitting only .192 with four home runs and 12 RBI on the year. OF Robbie Grossman was optioned to Class AAA Fresno (Calif.) to make room for Springer on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: It's great news for Springer's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) fantasy owners that he returned when eligible. However, you may want to hold him out of your lineups until he shows some consistency with the stick, mainly at FantasyScore.

Tue, 12 May 2015 14:07:33 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (concussion) has been cleared to start a rehab assignment with Class AA Corpus Christi (Texas) Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) could return shortly if he doesn't show anymore concussion symptoms after a short rehab stint. However, you may want to continue avoiding him at FantasyScore. Before his injury, he was hitting only .192 (19-for-99) with four home runs and 12 RBI in 27 games.

Astros | George Springer out of lineup Wednesday

Wed, 06 May 2015 14:50:34 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (head) continues to be evaluated for a concussion after crashing into the outfield wall Tuesday, May 5, and he is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 6, according to manager A.J. Hinch. Springer was able to walk off the field under his owner power yesterday, though.

Fantasy Tip: If Springer is diagnosed with concussion-like symptoms, he'll be required to go on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Robbie Grossman ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting ninth Wednesday and could see everyday playing time if Springer lands on the DL. However, he's a low-end outfield option at FantasyScore.
