Player Notes
George Springer cranked a solo home run against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Advice: Springer has now homered in two out of three games since returning from a concussion, which is a promising sign. The 25-year-old is having issues with strikeouts, so he's hitting just .193 so far, but he's made up for that somewhat from a fantasy perspective with six homers and 10 steals.

George Springer hit a tiebreaking homer off Jeremy Affeldt in his return from the disabled list to lead the Astros to a 4-3 win over the Giants on Wednesday.

Advice: Springer missed a week with a concussion. The homer was his fifth in 103 at-bats this season. He was hitting second and third for the Astros before getting hurt, but now that Jake Marisnick has assumed the leadoff spot, at least temporarily, Springer found himself in the cleanup spot tonight.

Fri, May 15 Rotoworld
Astros activated OF George Springer from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Advice: Springer played in a rehab game with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday to convince the club he was ready to roll. He wound up missing just the minimum amount of time with a concussion. Springer sports a disappointing .192/.311/.374 batting line this season but does have four homers and 10 stolen bases.

George Springer (concussion) will be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

Advice: Springer had one hit in four at-bats in the designated hitter spot for Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, and the Astros are convinced he needed just the one rehab game. He'll have spent the minimum amount of time on the disabled list after suffering a concussion last week when he ran into the outfield wall.

George Springer (concussion) has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

Advice: MLB.com's Brian McTaggart suspects that Springer will be cleared to return to the Astros' active roster after just one rehab game. The dynamic young right fielder was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list on May 6 after running into an outfield wall at Minute Maid Park while making a fantastic catch.
