A.J. Hinch Says He’s Not Optimistic About Alex Bregman Playing Friday

By Josh Reese

CBS Houston – Wednesday Houston Astros rookie third baseman Alex Bregman was not able to make it through the team’s win over the Texas Rangers.

After hitting a double in the bottom of the sixth, Tyler White grounded out to the shortstop but was able to move Bregman over. The extra 90 feet ended up being costly as Breman would end up walking off the field with trainers.

The Astros announced that the young third basemen left the game with right hamstring discomfort. Tony Kemp would run for Bregman and stay in the game at second base moving Marwin Gonzalez over to third.

A.J. Hinch following the game was happy with the baserunning play Bregman made but noticed he pulled up.

Bregman exited the game after making it to third base with one out. The team would end up scoring two runs before the inning ended to take a 5-1 lead on the Texas Rangers, they ultimately went on to win 8-4 without Bregman or Altuve.

Hinch following the game was not optimistic about Bregman playing on Friday against the Seattle Mariners.

Before leaving the game Bregman snapped a 0-12 hitless streak. In September Bregman was batting .315 and since his call up in late July he has only missed one game when the Astros chose to rest him after a slow start to the season.
