Astros activate Springer from 10-day DL

Updated: 

The Houston Astros got back one of their leaders after they activated MLB All-Star George Springer off the 10-day disabled list.

Springer went onto the DL with a leg injury he sustained when getting his leg caught up in the outfield during a match-up with the Philadelphia Phillies July 24.

The 27-year-old is batting .310 with 27 home runs and 66 RBIs on the season ahead of Wednesday's clash.

The Astros are 5-8 without Springer in the line-up.
