    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.
    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. Apr 16 - 12:09 AM

    Hopefully Topps will give him a Mystery Auto Redemption in Bowman.

    i always wondered why it took houston so long (going back to mid-2013 for Springer) since they stink up the league. the only thing that made sense to me is they didn't want the service clock to start.

    Wish I hadn't listed everything during Spring Training but needed some $$ quickly. He is a MASHER.

    and hopefully be good for the tv ratings to improve on the 0.0 ratings (for what few can actually watch the games in the Houston area).

    I was wondering that too.
    Springer turns 25 later this season. He was drafted three years ago out of college, so he wasn't a raw talent.
    He's been great every year in the minors and the Astros suck, so why waste his young years in the minors? He could have been a great young player in the Majors like Giancarlo Stanton, and now he's almost 25.
