Analysis: Obscured by the success of the Astros' breakthrough year was the disappointment that Springer, their high-energy right fielder, had to sit out two months after a pitch from Edinson Volquez broke his right wrist in midseason. He returned for most of September and the playoffs, finishing with a .276 average, 16 home runs and 41 RBIs in 102 games. There is the sense that Springer's best has yet to be seen.
