Apparently Springer was available to pinch-hit on Friday but he didn't make a plate appearance. Springer sustained the wrist injury on Thursday when he attempted to make a diving catch in the seventh inning. X-rays did come back negative, however, so the Astros are hopeful he can avoid an IL stint. He's still considered day-to-day while Myles Straw mans center field in his place.
