CLEVELAND -- After suffering a setback in his rehab from a left quadriceps strain earlier in the month, rookie right fielder George Springer's recovery is now headed in the right direction.

Manager Bo Porter said that Springer, who has been out since July 20, is now able to take batting practice and run.

"He's making progress," Porter said.

Springer is hitting .231 with 20 home runs in 78 games. The Astros have held their own without his powerful bat in the lineup, as they were 15-16 since he went on the DL prior to Saturday night's game against the Indians.

"It's tough not to be out there with my teammates," Springer said. "That's the hardest part of being on the DL. But the good thing is that we're playing good baseball, so that makes it easier to take."
