George Springer Leads Houston Astros To Victory, Promptly Gets Cut

I mean, it's not that cut and dry, but 2011 first-round pick George Springer did contribute an awful lot in Monday night's victory over the New York Yankees. Tuesday morning, he found himself assigned to minor league camp.

There wasn't a real chance that Springer would break camp with the Astros, but he certainly showed off his multi-faceted tool set which made the Astros so high on him. What did he manage to do? Courtesy of Zachary Levine:

Springer packed a game’s worth of varied action into the span of two innings. He had a twisting catch going back on a ball in center field, a go-ahead RBI double in the ninth inning and a steal of third that led to what turned out to be the key run in the 4-3 win.

Oh, and add to the fact that Springer "hate" the Yankees, and I don't think it's possible for me to like him any more. The real question, which lots of different people have attempted to guess, is where Springer ends up this season. With the former administration, l'd say Lancaster, but we don't have a good read on what Luhnow and Co. will do just yet.
