SPORTS MAVEN: Springer’s return boosts Astros lineup

Posted: Wednesday, June 26, 2019 9:09 pm

After losing seven straight games last week, the Houston Astros get a change in health. 

George Springer returns from missing three more than a month due to a Grade 2 right hamstring strain. Springer, who had been out since May 24, returned to the lineup Tuesday against the Pirates. The two-time All-Star will provide a much-needed boost to a slumping hitting group. Springer had hit .309 with a .389 on-base percentage, 17 home runs and 45 RBIs before the injury. The 29-year-old showed he has plenty of pop during his rehab stint with the Corpus Christi Missions by hitting two home runs on Friday and garnering a single, a walk and an RBI on Sunday.
