George Springer likely DL-bound after getting hit on the wrist

15 Comments

Astros outfielder George Springer was hit on the right wrist by an Edinson Volquez pitch in last night’s game. X-rays had not been taken by the time the press spoke to manager A.J. Hinch last night, but Hinch did not wax optimistic about the status of Springer, saying that it seems inevitable that he’ll be on the disabled list.

Spring is hitting .264/.365/.457 with 13 homers and 14 stolen bases on the year. His loss will be a blow to the Astros.
