Houston Astros star George Springer had been sidelined for over a month before returning to the lineup on Tuesday.

One day later, Springer got to Pittsburgh Pirates starter Dario Agrazal with a lead-off blast. It was a massive shot with an exit velocity of 110.9 mph, traveling 448 feet off the bat.

Check it out here.

The Astros are certinaly welcoming Springer back into the mix. The dude was a legit AL MVP candidate before going down to with a hamstring strain back in late May.

He entered Wednesday’s action hitting .307 with 17 homers, 43 RBI and a 1.021 OPS.

It appears that a month on the shelf has not impacted Springer’s legendary swing.
