News: Springer (quadriceps) will not play again this season, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Springer ran the bases over the weekend, seemingly in a final attempt to convince the coaching staff to let him return, but interim manager Tom Lawless announced Tuesday that the team has decided to play it safe and shut him down for the remainder of the season. The 24-year-old Springer did not make an immediate impact upon his promotion in mid-April, as he hit just .182/.262/.218 with zero homers in his first 14 games, but he went on to smack 20 homers in his next 64 contests.(RotoWire, )

News: Springer (quad) ran the bases over the weekend, but it's unclear if he will be able to return before the end of the season, Howard Chen of CSN Houston reports. Impact: With just two weeks left in the regular season, Springer appears likely to see just a handful of games in the best-case scenario, while the Astros could continue to rest him as there is little incentive to risk a setback at this stage.(RotoWire, )

News: The Astros remain optimistic that Springer (quadriceps) will be able to play in games again this season, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports. Impact: Obviously there's no point in the Astros playing Springer this season until he's 100 percent healthy, but owners in deeper leagues may still want to hold on to him on the off chance he gets a week's worth of at-bats later this month. However, in shallower, single-season leagues, it's not very likely Springer will match the production of a healthy player on the waiver wire over the rest of the season.(RotoWire, )
