The Houston Astros placed George Springer on the 15 day DL, technically with a right quad injury, although he has been experiencing right knee discomfort as well. The hope is his stay on the DL will not be an extended one. To take his place, the team recalled Marc Krauss from Class AAA Oklahoma City.
“I just got to get through it,” Springer said on Tuesday. “Whatever happens, happens. I just have overall kind of discomfort.”
Springer is have a super season with 20 home runs, and 51 RBI through his first 78 games at the major league level.
Robbie Grossman will slide over to center field in Springers absence and L.H. Hoes with get time in right.
The Astros are 42-58 and in fourth place in the American League West two game ahead of the Texas Rangers
