Houston Astros OF George Springer was named the Texas League Player of the Year, and SP David Martinez was named the Texas League Pitcher of the Year.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Springer, one of baseball's top prospects, to join the club sometime next month; he's a deep-mixed add even before he comes up. Martinez is a fringe prospect that fantasy owners shouldn't rush to consider acquiring in dynasty leagues.

The Houston Astros placed C Carlos Corporan (concussion) on the 7-day disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 20, and recalled C Max Stassi and P David Martinez from the minors in corresponding moves.
Fantasy Tip: Stassi is one of the team's top prospects, but he'll serve as the backup to Jason Castro. Only pursue Stassi as a power-hitting second catcher in deep AL-only setups.
