FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: GEORGE SPRINGER (WRIST) TO BEGIN REHAB ASSIGNMENT THIS WEEKEND

Houston Astros outfielder George Springer is expected to start a rehab assignment this weekend as he nears a return from a fractured wrist that has kept him out since the beginning of July.  Springer has had no pain in the wrist upon taking batting practice over the last week and he will do so again on Friday as a last test before the assignment begins. 

Analysis:  It is going to be like the already in first place Astros made a trade for a top outfield bat when Springer returns.  Before the injury, the second-year Springer was taking a firm leap in production, improving his batting average and contact rates, while also really pushing up his stolen bases.  It is only a matter of time before we see a blockbuster fantasy baseball campaign from Springer and 2016 could be it.
