Houston Astros star outfielder George Springer left Friday night’s game in the 8th inning after chasing after a foul ball.  He slid on the warning track in foul territory to avoid making contact with his teammates and the wall.

Springer immediately grabbed the back of his left leg.  He tried to stay in the game, but decided against it and limped off the field.

The injury was significant enough for the Astros to place Springer on the injured list.  He will miss at least the next 10 days.

That’s a tough loss for the Astros.  Hopefully he won’t miss too much time.
