"Every once in a while," writes MLB's official site, "a franchise gets really lucky to find a player who checks off every box. He's not only supremely talented, but he has a relentless drive and work ethic to be great. That's George Springer."
Springer is one of the MLB's truest jacks of all trades, and one of the reasons the Houston crew will shine in 2016 and beyond.
For example, George is one of the best offensive players on the Astros.
In the last eight games of the 2015 season, a time during which the Astros were vying for an AL West victory, George Springer batter for a.389 average to lead the Astros to a 6-2 record during that span.
