3B - HOU
Alex Bregman underwent x-rays that confirmed he suffered a broken left index finger during game 6 of the World Series. He will be ready for Spring Training next season.
Bregman doesn't need surgery but will need 8 weeks to fully recover. This shouldn't have much impact on his 2023 season, and he should be ready to go for the start of Spring Training if all goes well. He had a nice bounce-back season in 2022 with a .358 wOBA and 136 wRC+.
Astros 3B Alex Bregman went deep in Houston's 7-3 loss to Tampa Bay Friday. He finished 1-for-4 with a solo home run.
It was Bregman's second home run in the last three games. He is now up to 23 on the season to go with 92 RBI and a solid .368 on-base percentage.
Alex Bregman went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Houston's 10-2 win over the Diamondbacks Tuesday.
That was just one of five home runs hit by the Astros Tuesday. Jose Altuve hit two, Jeremy Pena went yard as did David Hensley. Bregman is up to 22 jacks on the year with a decent .263 BA and strong .370 OBP. He will likely still be worth a mixed round pick next year again.
Alex Bregman (rest) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Rays.
Manager Dusty Baker indicated that Bregman would likely get a day off after clinching the AL West Monday. He has rebounded nicely after a slow first few months of 2022 and owns a .365 wOBA on the season. Aledmys Diaz is playing 3B and batting cleanup Wednesday.
Astros 3B Alex Bregman's second half surge continued Sunday. He went 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks, four RBI and two runs in a 12-4 win over the Angels.
Bregman was named American League Player of the Month for August. He hasn't been quite as dominant in September but the veteran infielder does have a great .430 on-base percentage. He is up to 21 home runs and 83 RBI, which was highly unlikely just six weeks ago.
