George Springer News
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer hit a leadoff home run Tuesday, taking Jameson Taillon deep in a 5-2 loss to the New York Yankees. Springer also singled and scored an additional run in four trips to the plate. He now has 24 long balls on the year to go with 86 runs scored, 72 RBI, and 13 stolen bases. Springer is finishing strong with a .283/.333/.617 slash line and five home runs over his last 15 games. Fantasy managers can hardly complain about his overall production, even if his .810 OPS falls short of his .851 career mark.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer was key to the team's 4-1 win against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday, going 2-for-4 with a walk, a run, and a stolen base. The 32-year-old has been solid at the top of the lineup once again this season, slashing .265/.342/.465 with 19 HRs, 67 runs, 57 RBI, and 12 SBs across 105 games. When he isn't dealing with injuries, Springer's a five-category contributor in a strong Toronto lineup. Fantasy managers should start him in every league and hope he stays healthy for the rest of the season.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer (knee) is serving as the designated hitter and batting leadoff on Tuesday against the Boston Red Sox and right-hander Josh Winckowski. Springer will return to the lineup on Tuesday after being out since last Thursday when he fouled a ball off his knee. He has hits in his last seven at-bats, though, and his fantasy managers are hoping he can stay hot after resting recently. The 32-year-old veteran should be returned to all starting fantasy lineups against Winckowski. On the season, Springer is hitting .269/.345/.479 with an .824 OPS, 18 home runs, 51 RBI, 64 runs scored and 10 stolen bases in 353 at-bats.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer had an interesting first season with his new team. He produced decent numbers in the time he did play, posting a .264/.352/.555 slash line with 22 home runs, 50 RBI, and four stolen bases. However, he only had 342 plate appearances due to various injuries to his oblique, right quad, and left knee. His underlying numbers were more or less unchanged from previous seasons; he maintained an above-average walk rate but posted a 23.1% strikeout rate that was above his 2020 mark and was slightly higher than his 22.1% career mark. He also continued to hit the ball hard at a league-average rate with a career-high 19-degree launch angle. Given the stellar lineup he hits in, there is no reason to think that Springer would not be a contributor in at least HR, runs, and RBI in 2022 if he can stay healthy. Springer is currently being drafted without injuries in mind, going at pick 57 overall and outfielder 16. This range seems fair if he stays healthy, and while some fantasy managers may be a bit hesitant given his 2021 season, waiting until about pick 65 seems like the biggest discount they could reasonably get at this time.
