Yes, it’s Springer Time in Houston!
At long last, George Springer will suit up in an Astros’ uniform.
With 263 minor league games under his belt, the 24-year-old top prospect was called up to replace Robbie Grossman, who was optioned to Oklahoma City.
In another long-awaited decision, the Astros also parted ways with Lucas Harrell after another ho-hum start Tuesday evening.
Go ahead and say it: It’s about time!
Springer had hit his stride just a few games ago and left OKC in style, hitting a grand slam with a 3-for-4 night. He finished the season — presumably — hitting .353 and a .459 OBP.
So, go and and sound off…on Springer and Harrell.
