Astros put Springer in key No. 2 batting spot behind Altuve

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) The Houston Astros are looking for a link between the leadoff excellence of Jose Altuve and the business of scoring enough runs to win.

George Springer, the free-spirited, free-swinging outfielder who hit 20 home runs in 78 games as a rookie, welcomes the assignment.

"First of all, you're hitting behind the batting champ, and he's always on base," Springer said. "If he's on base he's a threat to run, and that puts me in a better position to hit."
