Springer was injured when he crashed headfirst into a wall making a catch on May 5 against Texas. He singled as the designated hitter in a rehabilitation start for Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday night.
Also on Wednesday the Astros activated left-hander Brett Oberholtzer from the 15-day disabled list to make his first start of the season. Oberholtzer started the year on the disabled list because of a blister on his left index finger.
