re: Springer just got the call (Posted on 5/26/14 at 11:37 pm to Lester Earl)
quote: Springer has knocked five home runs in his last four games while going 8 for 16 at the plate with 11 RBI. He also has a hit streak of eight games to his credit. Springer has started to kick things up a notch during his rookie campaign, hitting .268/.348/.500 with eight home runs and 25 RBI in 138 at-bats.
quote: A lot of people are pulling crazy #'s out of their ass. But if you look at the underlying stats of Springer he's basically Justin Maxwell with more speed. Maxwell has a 65% contact rate and a .227 major league average.
