    George Springer (hamstring) out again Wed.

    Springer subbed into Tuesday night's game after Teoscar Hernandez suffered a major knee injury, but the Astros don't want to push it with his tight left hamstring. Josh Reddick is in center field and batting leadoff on Wednesday.

    Springer (hamstring) subbed in Tuesday

    Springer was called into action in right field after Teoscar Hernandez suffered an ugly-looking knee injury on a collision with teammate Jose Altuve. Springer should return fully to the starting lineup on Wednesday after battling through some mild left hamstring tightness.

    Springer (hamstring) not in lineup Tuesday

    The hope was that Springer would only have to miss one game due to his left hamstring tightness, but he apparently needs at least another day. Josh Reddick is starting in center field Tuesday, with Nori Aoki in right and Carlos Beltran in left.

    Astros hopeful Springer will return Tuesday

    Springer sat out Sunday after leaving Saturday's game with left hamstring tightness. The hope is that he'll feel good enough to play Tuesday, but it's possible the Astros will play things safe and wait until Wednesday.

    Springer (hamstring) could miss just one game

    Springer lobbied to play Sunday after exiting Saturday's contest with a tight left hamstring. It didn't work, as Jake Marisnick is starting in center field in his place, but it sounds like Springer could be back in there on Tuesday after Monday's off day.

    George Springer (hamstring) sitting out Sun.

    Springer's streak of 205 consecutive games played will come to an end after he tweaked his left hamstring Saturday. The Astros are calling him day-to-day, but a disabled list stint can't be ruled out if he doesn't feel much better in a day or two. Jake Marisnick is starting in center field Sunday, with Josh Reddick occupying the leadoff spot.

    Springer leaves with hamstring discomfort

    Springer pulled up running to first base in the fifth inning and didn't come out for the following frame. Nori Aoki replaced him in right field. Springer went 0-for-2 with a walk before exiting. The Astros are calling him day-to-day. Springer's steak of 205 consecutive games played will likely come to an end on Sunday. It had been the longest active streak in the major leagues.

    Manny Machado is a top projected bat, but Mike Moustakas could be a value pivot

    Tonight's top projected hitters reads like the top of the prospect board five years ago with Harper, Machado and Trout the only three batters projected for 12 points or more on FanDuel, though Murphy and Springer join them at nine points on DraftKings. Those looking to be more thrifty (perhaps to pay up for pitching) might opt to pivot from Machado on DK to Moustakas (2.49 Pt/$/K), who has a 134 wRC+ and .302 ISO vs RHP since last year and has a matchup at home against Matt Cain. The top value on FD is projected to be Seth Smith (121 wRC+, .188 ISO vs RHP since last year) facing Bronson Arroyo, who has already allowed four HRs this season. Max Scherzer is easily the top projected pitcher overall tonight, while Luis Severino (4.33 Pt/$/K on FanDuel) might give players the best return on their fantasy dollars.

    Springer plays catalyst in Astros' comeback

    Springer had just one hit in the game but he made it count, swatting a two-run jack off reliever Sean Doolittle as part of a four-run eighth inning. His six homers are tied for most in the American League. He's also among the league leaders in RBI (11) and runs scored (10) atop a potent Astros lineup. It'd be nice if he stole more bases, but that's about the only complaint we'll register against the 27-year-old.

    Giancarlo Stanton has a 102.4 mph aEV on 11 batted balls against Bartolo Colon

    Ryan Braun is the only player to total three HRs or more against the pitcher they are facing tonight. In total, he has six extra-base hits in 30 PAs against J.A. Happ, but the date may be a bit out-dated since Statcast Exit Velocity numbers are not included for any of their matchups. The two HR club has a few interesting members, including George Springer (99.9 mph aEV on five BBE), who tops our HR Predictor tonight (6.66%) against Ariel Miranda and Giancarlo Stanton, who has a 102.4 mph aEV on 11 batted balls against Bartolo Colon. Stanton has just a 66 wRC+ over the last week, but has made hard contact on 42.9% of batted balls.
