Astros’ Springer day to day after taking pitch to left elbow
Springer remained on the ground for nearly two minutes Friday night as Houston’s medical staff attended to him. He finished the inning as a baserunner, but was replaced in center field in the top of the fourth by Jake Marisnick.
Springer is hitting .296 with eight home runs and 26 RBIs for the defending World Series champs. He set a franchise record for hits in a nine-inning game on Monday night in Oakland, going 6 for 6 with a three-run homer, a double, four singles and four runs scored.
