George Springer is batting second in his major league debut on Wednesday night against the Royals.

Advice: Houston will throw the ultra-talented young outfielder right into the fire. Springer was batting .353/.459/.647 with three home runs in 13 games this year at Triple-A Oklahoma City and is a must-have in all standard fantasy leagues. The 24-year-old compiled a .959 OPS, 65 homers, 85 steals, and 207 RBI in 284 minor league games.

Astros purchased the contract of OF George Springer from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Advice: News broke late Tuesday night that Springer was getting a promotion, and now the move is official. The top prospect has hit .353 with three homers, nine RBI and four stolen bases in his first 13 contests for Oklahoma City this season after batting .303/.411/.600 with 37 longballs and 45 steals last year. He'll play every day -- likely in right field -- and needs to be owned in all fantasy formats.

Wed, Apr 16 Rotoworld
Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros will promote top prospect George Springer from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to Wednesday's game.

Advice: The report has been confirmed by various other outlets. Springer earned the promotion after a 3-for-4 effort Tuesday that included a grand slam. The young outfielder has hit .353 with three homers, nine RBI and four stolen bases in his first 13 contests for Oklahoma City. He figures to take over right field for the Astros and needs to be owned in all fantasy formats. Robbie Grossman has been optioned to Triple-A to make room for Springer.

Astros outfield prospect George Springer launched his second home run of the season as part of a 2-for-3 day.

Advice: Springer has eight hits (including two home runs and a triple) and four walks as part of a .421/.522/.842 over his past five games. He also has three stolen bases and five strikeouts. Once the Super 2 deadline passes in June, expect to see him patrolling center field in Minute Maid Park.

Tue, Apr 15 Rotoworld
Astros prospect OF George Springer launched his first home run of the season on Thursday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Advice: Springer was 2-for-3 with a pair of walks and runs and a stolen base in the game. The 24-year-old had gotten off to a good start at Oklahoma City, but was kept in the yard until Thursday's game. Through his first eight contests, Springer is batting .290/.421/.516 with four doubles, two steals and a 10/6 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Expect the toolsy outfielder to arrive in the major leagues sometime in June when service time is no longer a concern.
