Bregman started at third base and went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Colorado.
Bregman was back with the team after clearing health and safety protocols and missing the last four games. He and three others flew by private plane to Colorado, cleared some final intake protocols, and were activated in time for the game. There had been talk of Bregman not returning before Thursday.
Bregman (COVID-19 injured list) is starting Tuesday in Colorado, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
As expected, Bregman is back in the starting nine for the first of a two-game series in Coors Field.
Bregman (undisclosed) is traveling with his teammates to Denver on Monday and appears set to play in Tuesday's series opener against the Rockies, Mark Berman of KRIV Fox 26 reports.
The Astros had a handful of players placed on the COVID-19 injured list last week, but several of them are set to return, suggesting they didn't actually come down with the virus themselves. Assuming Bregman's week off didn't throw off his swing too much, he could be set for a strong two-game series at Coors Field.
Astros manager Dusty Baker said Sunday that Bregman (COVID-19 injured list) has been cleared to resume individual workouts, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Bregman and the other four Astros placed on the COVID-19 IL on Wednesday all appear to have finished their respective quarantine periods, but Baker didn't specify when any of the players might be ready to rejoin the team. Since Baker previously mentioned that the five players in question are unlikely to be available for the team's ongoing road trip, Bregman's earliest possible return date would most likely be Thursday, when the Astros host the Angels.
Bregman (COVID-19 protocols) is unlikely to return during the Astros' current five-game road trip, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
Bregman was one of five Astros who were placed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday. While it's not yet clear whether Bregman has tested positive for the virus, he'll likely miss at least the next five games due to the league's health and safety protocols. Abraham Toro should continue to serve as the team's primary third baseman until Bregman is cleared to return.
The Astros placed Bregman on the injured list Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Bregman was one of five players Houston placed on the IL on Wednesday without an injury designation, indicating that each member of the quintet has been ruled out due to COVID-19-related protocols. No reports have come out yet specifying whether Bregman (or any of the other four Astros) tested positive for the virus, or if the players in question have been ruled out through contact tracing. Aledmys Diaz or Abraham Toro will likely see most of the action at third base while Bregman is sidelined.
Bregman was removed from Tuesday's 8-2 loss to the Tigers prior to the seventh inning, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
At the time of Bregman's removal, the Astros were down 7-1 and manager Dusty Baker opted to protect the third baseman, who dealt with hamstring injuries during spring training. The manager has held Bregman out of two regular-season games thus far as a protective measure and cited "sore legs" as a reason for one of them. "What went into my decision was the score," Baker said about removing Bregman, Michael Brantley and Jose Altuve late in the game. "Brantley wasn't feeling that well and Bregman, I had to protect his legs. That's something that might be going on all year." Prior to Tuesday's game, Bregman told Rome that he's trending in the right direction in his buildup from the hamstring issues that bothered him this spring.
Bregman (leg) will return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers, batting third and playing third base, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Bregman sat Saturday against Oakland due to leg soreness, but he's ready to go again following Sunday's off day. He has just one hit in his last three contests after opening the year with four straight multi-hit games.
Bregman's legs are "a little sore," which is why he is not in Saturday's lineup against the A's, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
He will get a couple days to rest up, as the Astros have Sunday off before starting a three-game series with the Tigers on Monday. Aledmys Diaz is starting at third base and batting seventh.
Bregman is not in Saturday's lineup against the A's, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Bregman hit .471 with two home runs over his first four games but is 1-for-12 over his last three starts. Aledmys Diaz gets the start at third base and will bat seventh.
Bregman went 0-for-4 in Friday's 6-2 loss to Oakland.
Bregman, who started the season with multiple hits in each of the first four games, is hitless in his last nine at-bats. The top of Houston's order -- Jose Altuve, Michael Brantley and Bregman -- which propelled the Astros through their hot start, are a combined 3-for-25 in the first two games of the series against the Athletics.
Bregman is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Oakland, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Bregman started the first two games of the year and was excellent, going 2-for-4 with a homer and a walk in each game. He doesn't seem to be dealing with any specific injury, but he battled a hamstring issue for a large part of camp, so the Astros may not want him to play three games in a row right away.
Bregman went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a second run scored in Friday's 9-5 win over the Athletics.
Bregman's had nearly identical lines over the first two games of the season, including homers in each. He's slotted at third in the batting order and drove in the two players before him, Jose Altuve and Michael Brantley, when he homered. Both Altuve and Brantley have a track record of getting on base, so Bregman should have plenty of chances with men on base or in scoring position.
Bregman went 2-for-4 with a solo homer while knocking in two and scoring twice in Thursday's victory over the Athletics.
Bregman followed up Michael Brantley's homer in the eighth inning with one of his own. With the game's outcome not in question in the following frame, he was pulled for a pinch runner after getting into scoring position -- likely in deference to the sore hamstring that plagued him during spring training. Robel Garcia ran for him and ended up scoring a run that could have been Bregman's. Bregman is coming off arguably his worst MLB season, as he hit a modest .242/.350/.451 -- well off his career line of .283/.382/.523 -- but he's still just 27 and there's no reason to think he can't bounce back. Opening Day certainly offered up some optimism in that regard.
Bregman started at third base and went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's spring game against the Mets.
Bregman made his spring debut Tuesday after dealing with a sore hamstring. He faced pure heat from Jacob deGrom and flied out three times, including one deep shot that would have been for extra bases had Brandon Nimmo not hauled it in. It's a positive sign that he was able play the field immediately and not be eased in as a DH. He will be held out of Wednesday's game as a precaution, per Brian McTaggart of MLB.com. With a team day offThursday, Bregman is not expected to play again until Friday.
Bregman (hamstring) will start at third base and bat third Tuesday in the Astros' Grapefruit League game against the Mets, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Bregman will check into the lineup for the first time this spring after his debut was delayed by the sore left hamstring that he experienced shortly upon reporting to camp. According to Rome, manager Dusty Baker said that he expects Bregman to pick up two or three at-bats across four or five innings before bowing out of Tuesday's contest. If Bregman's hamstring responds well to game action, Baker indicated that the third baseman could be back in the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals, too.
Bregman (hamstring) will play in Tuesday's exhibition game against the Mets, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Bregman has had to wait a while to see his first action of the spring, but he will only have to wait one day longer at this point. Despite the lack of at-bats up to this point, the two weeks remaining in spring training should give him ample time to get ready for Opening Day.
Manager Dusty Baker hopes Bregman (hamstring) will be able to play in spring training games next week, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old has yet to make his spring debut due to a left hamstring issue, and he won't be joining the lineup this weekend. Bregman said last week he feels about 90 percent healthy while taking live batting practice and participating in pregame work, but the Astros continue to slow play his progression in camp. There doesn't appear to be much concern about his availability for Opening Day at this point, though it's worth keeping an eye on his status until he actually takes the field.
Bregman (hamstring) isn't expected to make his Cactus League debut until the middle of next week at the earliest, Mark Berman of KRIV Fox 26 reports.
Bregman came into camp battling a sore hamstring, and the Astros have seen no reason to push their star third baseman. He's been working out in some form since late February and recently said he felt 90 percent healthy, but the Astros don't intend for him to get into game action for at least another week. He'll only have about two weeks until Opening Day at that point, so it's possible he needs the occasional maintenance day early in the year, but the team doesn't sound too worried about a potential trip to the injured list.
Bregman (hamstring) said he feels "90 percent" healthy, but it's unclear when he's expected to make his spring debut, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The 26-year-old suffered the hamstring injury while working out in January, but he's been a full participant in pregame work and is also taking live batting practice. Bregman indicates he'll be ready in time for Opening Day, and it's no surprise to see the Astros exercising caution with their star third baseman early in camp.
