Do any Astros fans have any inside info on Springer making the opening day roster?

no clue what they want to do

right now I'd say the only certainty is Fowler in CF

the depth chart has Jesus Guzman in RF and Robbie Grossman in LF, if thats the case, I dont see how Springer doesnt player over those 2 schlubs

mlbdepthcharts has this as the starting lineup.

CF- Dexter Fowler
2B- Jose Altuve
C- Jason Castro
1B- Chris Carter
DH- Marc Krauss
LF- Robbie Grossman
3B- Matt Dominguez
RF- L.J. Hoes
SS- Jonathan Villar

Springer could start over Krauss, or Grossman, or Hoes.. but I don't think he will.
Springer started 2012 at A+ before going up to AA for 22 games at the end of the season. Springer started 2013 at AA before going up to AAA for 62 games. I think Springer will end up starting 2014 at AAA and at some point he will come up to Houston. total guess, but I imagine it wouldn't be until June. isn't that when the super 2 or whatever takes effect?

The Astro won't be competing any time soon so it would be silly to start Springer's free agency clock before June.

Hoes and Grossman showed enough for them to get some at bats to start the season. I doubt that the Astros start his clock any sooner than May or June.
