Astros | George Springer registers five RBI

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 21:58:40 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer went 3-for-5, including a grand slam, with two runs scored and five RBI against the Kansas City Royals on Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play on Friday, Springer had been mired in a slump, going 9-for-64 (.141) with two home runs and six RBI in his previous 16 games. That came on the heels of a torrid hot streak, though, and given his power/speed combination, Springer is someone to keep in your lineup even when he's struggling.

Astros | George Springer thriving in leadoff spot

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:21:49 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer is hitting .370 through six games since moving to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Springer is having an excellent season with 30 runs, 11 home runs, 28 RBI and a .270/.358/.480 slash line. His only flaw has been on the base paths, as Springer has only stole three bases in nine attempts, which might limit his opportunities for swipes somewhat going forward. Still, he's emerging as a high-end outfielder.

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:44:15 -0700

C Evan Gattis will start at catcher, while OF George Springer will serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has been posting solid numbers in recent games and should be an option at catcher for fantasy owners. Marisnick is still hitting only .145 so far this season and should be avoided in all leagues.
