Quadriceps injury shuts down Astros rookie slugger George Springer

George Springer‘s fantastic rookie season is on hold thanks to a strained right quadriceps muscle that has sent the 24-year-old outfielder to the disabled list.

Springer got off to a slow start following his mid-April call-up and his strikeout total leads the league, but he’s smacked 20 homers with a .900 OPS in 61 games since early May to rank as one of the league’s better all-around players during that span.

In addition to the quadriceps strain Springer has also been dealing with a knee problem, so he may need more than the minimum two-week stay on the shelf.

    He hasn’t actually been one of the bestter all around players. The defense has graded out poorly and he’s been about an average base runner.

    He’s essentially been a younger version of Marlon Byrd, which is fine.

    He does look like a Puerto Rican Hunter Pence actually.
