George Springer News
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer (elbow) is undergoing more testing on his right elbow in Chicago on Wednesday, and he will not be in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito. Zack Collins is on the taxi squad and could be called up to the active roster ahead of the weekend series against the Milwaukee Brewers, depending on how Springer responds to treatment over the next 48 hours. Fantasy managers should consider the 32-year-old as day-to-day right now, but you should also prepare for a potential injured list stint. Raimel Tapia is starting in center field and is hitting seventh on Wednesday, and he could benefit from more playing time if Springer is forced to the injured list.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer (elbow) exited Tuesday's contest against the White Sox early with right elbow discomfort, the team reported. Springer was serving as designated hitter and went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts before being removed. More information should come out after the game and in the next day or so, so fantasy managers should keep an eye out. Hopefully, Springer can avoid a serious injury, as he missed a portion of the 2021 season with a slew of injuries. The 32-year-old has looked good this season, slashing .260/.333/.489 with 13 home runs, 34 RBI, and six stolen bases.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer and third baseman Matt Chapman (wrist) are not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Baltimore Orioles. Springer has a scheduled day off, while Chapman is out because his right wrist is bothering him again, according to manager Charlie Montoyo. Raimel Tapia is in center field and batting sixth, while Santiago Espinal is playing the hot corner and hitting leadoff on Thursday against Orioles right-hander Tyler Wells. Chapman hit homers on Tuesday and Wednesday, but he was out for three straight games before that with right wrist soreness, so it's something to watch. Espinal will be a solid DFS target on Thursday, as he's hitting .298/.350/.451 with an .801 OPS, five homers, 31 RBI, 25 runs scored and three stolen bases on the season.
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.
