All three hits were singles. Springer has hit well since returning from a two week stint on the disabled list with a quad injury. He has a .307 batting average with 28 home runs, 86 runs scored and 70 RBI in 100 games played. He needs one more dinger to match his career high he set a year ago in 162 games.

George Springer went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

Springer struck for a two-run home run in the eighth inning, his 28th homer of the season. He was just activated from the disabled list on Wednesday after missing a month-and-a-half with left quad discomfort. In 96 games this season, Springer holds a .308/.383/.587 triple-slash with the aforementioned 28 home runs, plus 68 RBI.
Aug 12 - 12:05 AM

Astros activated OF George Springer from the 10-day disabled list.

Springer had been hoping to be activated on Friday, but the Astros gave him a few extra days to rest up before throwing him back into the fray. He has been on the shelf since July 25 with left quad discomfort. Prior to being sidelined by the injury, Springer was hitting a masterful .310/.384/.590 with 27 homers and 66 RBI in 93 games played.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Springer's return is great news for the Astros in a variety of facets, but one of the nicest parts about getting him back during this series is just how brutal the White Sox are at preventing base stealers from having success. Most DFS players don't focus on SBs, but the White Sox are dreadful enough that we need to take notice. Omar Narvaez - tonight's starter - has been better than teammate Kevan Smith, but Narvaez is still a work in progress as well. Narvaez has thrown out 10 of 46 attempted runners while Smith has gunned down just 3 of 45.

George Springer (quad) is not active for Tuesday night's series opener against the White Sox.

Springer was initially aiming to return to the Astros last Friday, but he's still working his way back from a left quad injury. It might be another couple days. Jake Marisnick is starting in center field and batting ninth Tuesday versus Chicago left-hander Derek Holland.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Despite Springer's absence, the Astros are still the top overall offense on the board, especially the right-handed bats in this lineup. White Sox starter Derek Holland has allowed a whopping 23 HRs to RHBs already this year (2.36 HR/9) with a porous 5.7 K-BB%, and his 40.4 Hard% allowed is simply icing on the cake. Target the Astros with confidence.

George Springer (quad) will not be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Friday.

Manager A.J. Hinch hinted this would be the case a few days ago. It doesn't sound like Springer, who was seen running in the outfield before Thursday's game against the Rays, will require a rehab stint. Perhaps he'll be back after the Astros' off day on Monday.
Aug 3 - 6:42 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch isn't optimistic that George Springer (quad) will return when first eligible on Friday.

Springer was hoping to be back after a minimum DL stint but the clock is ticking and it doesn't look like he'll be ready by Friday. "Friday's his first eligibility day, but I'm not sold that's going to be the day he's activated," said Hinch. "We'll see how he comes out of the next couple of days." Springer resumed running on Tuesday but is still a day or two away from baseball activities. Friday remains a long shot.
Aug 1 - 9:49 PM

Astros placed OF George Springer on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 25, with left quad discomfort.

The Astros gave the injury a few days to get better after Springer was hurt Monday, but obviously he hasn't made sufficient improvement. He'll be eligible to return on August 4, although it's unclear whether he should be ready at that time. Derek Fisher will certainly stick around for a while now with Springer sidelined.
Jul 28 - 4:00 PM

George Springer (quad) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

Springer came down with minor discomfort in his left quad on Monday. He sat on Tuesday and will sit again on Wednesday as the Astros look to give him a little recovery space. Derek Fisher is manning center in his place and hitting second, while Jose Altuve is batting in Springer's typical leadoff spot.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The Astros are the top offense in baseball against right-handed pitching, but this isn't a night where stacking them up seems viable. Not only are they missing a few of their most potent bats, but they'll lose the DH in an NL park against one of the hottest pitchers in the league. Aaron Nola has racked up a 27.4 K% at home with a 50.4 GB% and 23.2 soft%, and his dominance against right-handed bats bodes well for his chances of setting down Altuve and Gurriel.
