3B,SS - HOU - IL10
Astros 3B Alex Bregman (quad) ran the bases on Tuesday.
Even better, Bregman ran them at a high intensity. It sounds as if the star third baseman could begin a minor league rehab assignment as soon as this weekend. Bregman has been sidelined since mid-June with his quad injury.
Astros manager Dusty Baker doesn't expect Alex Bregman (quad) to return for at least another month.
This means that the 27-year-old might not return until early-August. It's a tough development, but fantasy managers are encouraged to keep him stashed in an IL slot for the time being. Abraham Toro should continue seeing playing time in his absence.
Astros 3B Alex Bregman (quad) told reporters on Saturday that he doesn't have a timetable to return.
It's still unclear whether Bregman is dealing with a Grade 1 or Grade 1 strain, which will obviously affect how long he's out for. Fantasy managers should expect him to miss more than the minimum 10 days required for an IL stint, for now.
Alex Bregman will be placed on the 10-day IL with a quad strain.
An IL stint was all but assured last night when Dusty Baker said that Bregman would be out "awhile" with the injury. Abraham Toro will get the start on Thursday at third base and likely for the foreseeable future. Expect Bregman to likely be out well past the minimum 10 days.
The updates on Astros third baseman Alex Bregman (quad) do not appear to be very positive. Speaking postgame on Wednesday, manager Dusty Baker said, "It looks like we’ve lost Bregman for a while." The skipper added that the team should know more about the injury and its severity on Thursday.
Bregman exited after just one at-bat against the Rangers and was visibly experiencing discomfort. He's slashing .275/.359/.428 through 59 games this year and ranked fourth among third basemen in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings prior to going down. He's rostered in 100 percent of ESPN leagues and should be held on to until further updates come out.
