Astros | George Springer shows a sign of life

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 05:57:57 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer hit his first home run of the season against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, April 18. Springer is hitting just .150 so far this season, and he has struck out in 36.2% of his plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was a feast or famine hitter last season, and fantasy owners are hoping they're bellies aren't grumbling much longer. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come, and don't forget how quickly Springer's counting stats can add up. After a slow start last season, he went 20-for-73 with 20 runs, 10 home runs, 23 RBI and a .315/.432/.795 slash line through a 19-game stretch. See if there are any hasty fantasy owners out there and test the trade waters. Also, don't be afraid to take a calculated risk on Springer in FantasyScore contests.

Astros | George Springer to hit second?

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 15:47:16 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer is likely to hit second in the batting order this year behind 2B Jose Altuve. Springer isn't a prototypical second hitter, but manager A.J. Hinch thinks Springer will do just fine there. Springer hit 20 home runs in 78 games in 2014 before a leg injury, and he showed patience at the plate despite striking out 114 times in 295 at-bats. He embraced a new, gymnastics-style training regimen in the offseason, and he's also very disciplined with his eating habits. Springer hit .333 with a .636 slugging percentage in his first 33 Grapefruit League at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Springer has all the tools you'd like to see in a major league position player. Despite less than a full year in the big leagues, he won't come cheaply in drafts because of the hype surrounding him. Springer is eventually expected to become a perennial 20-20 candidate, and it could come as soon as 2015.

Astros | George Springer launches a pair

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 13:11:38 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer hit two home runs Friday, March 13, and both were to the opposite field.

Fantasy Tip: Springer burst onto the scene last season, and he showcased 40/20 potential, albeit while striking out 33% of the time. 2015 will be an interesting season for the 25-year-old outfielder, and fantasy owners will want to highly consider him in the early middle rounds on draft day. In a years time, he could easily be considered a first-round fantasy talent. However, there is risk, especially with the previously mentioned weak plate discipline which lead to a .34 BB/K mark. Be prepared for ups and downs throughout the season, too.
