There was speculation that the Houston Astros would recall George Springer from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday night and they made it official this morning when they purchased Springer's contract. The Astros top prospect has hit .353 with three homers, nine RBI and four stolen bases in his first 13 contests for Oklahoma City this season after batting .303 with 37 home runs and 45 steals last year. In what turned out to be his final game for the Triple-A RedHawks, Springer homered for a second straight game and went 3-for-4 with a grand slam and scored four runs. He'll play every day most likely in right field and needs to be owned in all fantasy formats.
