3B,SS - HOU
Alex Bregman (hamstring) took batting practice on the field on Thursday.
However, he didn't take infield. Still, this is a step in the right direction for Bregman. The third baseman is fully expected to be ready well before Opening Day.
Astros 3B Alex Bregman is dealing with a "slight tweak" in his hamstring.
Bregman hasn't taken infield or batting practice with the major league team the past two days. He reportedly tweaked his hamstring while working out this winter, and it's the same one that bothered him last year. It's so early in spring training, however, that this shouldn't affect his ability to get ready for the season.
Alex Bregman went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in the Astros 9-7 loss to the A's in Game 3 of the ALDS.
Bregman knocked his first double of the postseason to score Michael Brantley in Houston's five-run fifth inning. The third baseman owns a .278/.409/.500 batting line with one home run and two RBI across 18 at-bats (five games) this postseason. Houston will look to finish off the series against Frankie Montas in Game 4 on Thursday.
Alex Bregman went 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored, and a walk in the Astros 10-5 win over the A's in Game 1 of the ALDS on Monday.
Bregman put the 'Stros on the board in the top of the fourth inning when he took Chris Bassitt deep for his first home run of the postseason. He also singled, drew a walk, and scored another run in the top of the ninth inning.
Alex Bregman went 3-for-5 with a homer, a triple, a double, three RBI, and two runs scored in the Astros' 12-4 win over the Rangers on Thursday.
All of the Houston bats woke up in this one. Like many of the Astros hitters, Bregman is aiming to enter the postseason on a high note. For the year he's batting .254 with an .819 OPS. He ultimately wasn't worth the early-round investment that fantasy owners made in him.
