After being out since mid-June, Alex Bregman is making his long-awaited return to the Houston Astros lineup on Wednesday.
The star third baseman’s been rehabbing a strained quad muscle and hasn’t played since June 16.
After multiple stints with the Triple-A Sugar Land Skeeters, and a particularly successful recent stint where he hit .462 with 4 RBI in his last three games, Bregman is finally back, as Astros manager Dusty Baker announced following Tuesday’s Astros 4-0 win over the Kansas City Royals.
The two-time All-Star had some reaction on Twitter on Wednesday morning. The Astros are readying for an afternoon game at Minute Minute Park against the Royals, with gametime slated for 1:10 p.m.
