What can go wrong for the Astros at this point in the season? The pitching goes in the toilet? Hitting stops? No. This biggest issues to worry about is injuries.
The Astros got another scare last night with outfielder George Springer. Springer exited Monday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies in the bottom of the third inning.
It was announced that he exited the game with discomfort in his left quad.

The injury appears to have happened when Springe was tracking down Tommy Joesph’s double in the second inning. Springer’s cleat got caught in the ground. He finished the inning but he was replaced by Nori Aoki.
Springer dealt with a similar injury in 2014, he was put on the 15-day DL retroactive to July 20, 2014, and returned Sept. 29, 2014.
A.J. Hinch said after the game the move wasn’t anything to worry about and Springer is day-to-day.

No need to rush Springer back, the Astros are already without Carlos Correa.
