The Houston Astros announced earlier today that they’re placing outfielder George Springer on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured wrist that was suffered in yesterday’s Royals-Astros game when Springer was hit on the wrist by a fastball from Edison Volquez. Springer is not expected to be back for at least six weeks.
Astros place Springer on DL (rt wrist fracture). Presley selected from Triple A Fresno. Peacock transferred to 60-day DL.
