John Korduner / Icon SMIAfter a tough start, George Springer is on the rise again.When the amateur season began back in February the top talents in the class were predominantly college players, including two hitters who have not had superb seasons thus far. Rice's Anthony Rendon was expected to repeat as the nation's top college hitter and Connecticut's George Springer had a chance to be the No. 2 pick in the draft, thanks to plus power, defense and speed.
Springer started off the season slow and Keith Law scouted him in March with results that included poor swing mechanics, which could be a major factor. But after that West Coast road trip, Springer has been performing at a high level again, and his big weekend coincided with some apparent changes.
