The Houston Astros activated righfielder George Springer from the seven-day concussion disabled list, the team announced.

The team optioned outfielder Robbie Grossman to Triple-A Fresno in a corresponding roster move. The Astros made the move after Tuesday's 8-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants and after Springer had no setbacks during a rehab stint at Double-A Corpus Christi.

In his only appearance with Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Springer went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts as the team’s designated hitter.

Springer suffered a concussion after running into the right field wall at Minute Maid Park in Houston during the seventh inning of a game against the Texas Rangers on May 5.

"We had to go through the protocol like everybody else, waiting on him to pass the necessary checkpoints to get reinstated," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.

Springer is hitting .192 with four homers and 12 RBIs in 27 games this season. He is tied for second in the American League with 10 steals in 11 attempts.

The Astros (20-13) have lost two games in a row and enter Wednesday’s game with the Giants with a four-game lead over the Los Angeles Angels in the American League West.
