Astros call up prized prospect George Springer

HOUSTON (AP) Prized prospect George Springer says he will join the Houston Astros from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old outfielder had 37 homers and 108 RBIs with 45 stolen bases combined in Double-A and Triple-A last year. He was off to a strong start in Triple-A this season, too, hitting .308 with three homers and eight RBIs.

Springer told The Associated Press he received the news after Oklahoma City's win over Colorado Springs on Tuesday night, when he hit a grand slam.
