Spend any time with George Springer and it’s easy to tell he’s a high-energy, big-personality type of guy. He brings a 1,000-rpm mentality to his game — a big reason why he’s one of the more exciting prospects in baseball and giving the Houston Astros a boost in their outfield.
There have been times, though, when his tendency to go a mile a minute has tripped him up. Not between the lines — though he does need to pace himself there, as well — but with his speech.
Springer has a stutter.
