Astros right fielder George Springer was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list May 6 after ramming his head into the outfield wall at Minute Maid Park while making a spectacular grab on the night of May 5. But there’s good news on that front.
According to beat writer Brian McTaggart of MLB.com, Springer has been cleared to play in a minor league rehab game on Tuesday evening at Double-A Corpus Christi and is expected to rejoin the Astros on Wednesday in Houston for the second game of a two-game series against the Giants.
Springer had tallied four home runs, 10 stolen bases, and 14 runs scored in 27 games before landing on the 7-day disabled list. The 25-year-old had 20 homers and 51 RBI in 78 games last season as a rookie.
