News: Springer (quadriceps) stated that he's "one day closer" to a return from the disabled list, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Although he was eligible to be activated from the DL on Aug. 4, Springer has been pushed back in order to receive additional treatment after tweaking his quad last Wednesday.

Impact: Springer received treatment on his quad Friday and will use Saturday as a measuring stick toward his return. He was first eligible to come off the disabled list on Aug. 4 but wasn't ready.

News: Springer (quadriceps) will get treatment Friday and will be reevaluated again this weekend, the Houston Chronicle's Jose de Jesus Ortiz reports. Impact: He wasn't activated from the DL prior to Friday's game, and is still considered day-to-day. It still seems likely that he will be activated in the near future, but if he's still on the DL next week, it may be time to reconsider that timetable.(RotoWire, )

News: Springer (quad) merely suffered a minor setback Wednesday, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports. Impact: Springer gave Astros fans a scare when he had to return to Houston after tweaking his quad in a rehab game, but it now doesn't appear to be overly serious. It sounds like he was bothered by just a bit of soreness, but he'll be evaluated once again Friday. If everything checks out OK, look for Springer to be activated early next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Springer appeared to tweak his quad in a rehab outing Wednesday, Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Springer had been playing in rehab games for Low-A Quad Cities, and seems to have aggravated his quadriceps injury while attempting to leg out a double. This is disappointing for Astros fans and fantasy owners, as he was said to be nearing activation if he could compete seven innings of a rehab appearance. He'll now head to Houston for reevaluation, which will likely determine if an August activation is still a possibility.(RotoWire, )
