George Springer News
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer capped off a strong series against the New York Yankees by going 2-for-5 in Thursday's series finale. He reached base a total of six times during the three-game series, including a three-hit game on Wednesday. The 32-year-old has struggled a bit at the plate overall in September. He's slashing .216/.296/.371 across the month with three home runs, six RBI and 12 runs. Injuries have limited the former Astro to only 75 games on the season. He's hit 19 home runs across the year while scoring 54 runs and posting an OPS of .860.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer will get a breather on Sunday, one day after playing both games of a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles. The Blue Jays will deploy an outfield of Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Randal Grichuk, and Teoscar Hernandez. Springer has played in 10 games since returning from the injured list, collecting nine hits in 39 at-bats in that span with three extra-base hits. Fantasy managers should look for him to be back in the lineup early next week.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer (knee) will be the designated hitter and bat leadoff on Wednesday against Matt Harvey and the Baltimore Orioles. The 31-year-old had to be removed as a precaution from Tuesday's game due to soreness in his injured knee, just one day after he was activated from the 10-day injured list. Springer has been slow to rebound from the injury, going 1-for-6 at the plate since returning from IL. He has, however, hit a home run off of Harvey this season and regularly makes contact when facing the right-hander.
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.
