Astros activate slugger George Springer off DL 2 months after broken wrist


HOUSTON — The Houston Astros have activated outfielder George Springer from the 15-day disabled list.

Springer has been out with a right wrist fracture since July 2, a day after he was hit by a pitch against the Royals. At the time he was hitting .264 with 14 doubles, 13 home runs, 29 RBIs and 14 stolen bases in 75 games.

The Astros lead the AL West, but the gap has shrunk to two games over the Texas Rangers entering Friday's games.

Houston also recalled right-handed pitcher Michael Feliz from Double A Corpus Christi, bringing their active roster to 31.
