  • George Springer Returns Against Twins

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer (elbow) is back in the starting lineup on Thursday against Minnesota Twins right-hander Sonny Gray, serving as the designated hitter while manning his usual leadoff spot in the batting order. Springer will return to action after missing four of the team's last five games with a lingering elbow injury. While the Blue Jays are easing him back in as the DH, the 32-year-old should be returned to all fantasy lineups in single-year leagues. In just six games played since the All-Star break, Springer has gone 7-for-26 (.269) with a homer, five RBI, five runs scored and a stolen base. Overall, his line stands at .251/.330/.467 with 18 home runs, 47 RBI, 58 runs scored and 10 stolen bases in 334 at-bats.

  • George Springer Still Out Against Rays

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer (elbow) remains out of the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Rays. It will be the fourth time that Springer has sat out in the team's last five games, leaving some to wonder if his elbow injury is much more serious than the team is letting on. For now, fantasy managers have to consider him day-to-day while keeping him on their benches. Raimel Tapia is back in center field and is hitting ninth on Wednesday against Rays left-hander Jalen Beeks. Tapia is swinging the bat well this year, but he's not as strong against lefties while hitting from the left side of the plate. He's gone 10-for-38 (.263) against southpaws in 2022 with only one of his five home runs.
