After fearing the worst, the Astros got some relatively good news about George Springer. Looks like it's just a sprained thumb, NOT a season-ending injury as some people initially feared.
George Springer has a left thumb sprain. He is going on the 10-day DL. The Astros expect him to miss about two weeks.— Chandler Rome (@Chandler_Rome) August 6, 2018
Derek Fisher has been recalled.
In addition to Fisher being called up, we can expect to see a lot more of Jake Marisnick and Tony Kemp while Springer is out.
