Hartford Courant piece on George Springer

A year ago, George Springer was a Husky before signing his deal with the Astros, where he is now an All-Star at High-A Lancaster. The Hartford Courant talked to him about it.

Astros Director of Player Development Fred Nelson:
"We want to get him to be more selective, swing at more strikes. Early in the year, Lancaster played a lot of games in its division, so they saw a lot of teams seven and eight games. Pitchers got a chance to see what George does and how to pitch him, and then he made adjustments."
