Get excited, baseball fans! Houston Astros’ third baseman, Alex Bregman, is back and better than ever. After battling leg injuries the past few seasons, Bregman has fully healed and is ready to make his mark on the 2023 season.
Last year, Bregman showed us just a glimpse of his potential, hitting .259/.366/.454 with 23 homers, 93 runs and 93 RBIs in 155 games. But this year, with a new baby on the way and a healthy offseason under his belt, the stars may be aligned for Bregman to return to his 2019 MVP runner-up form.
Astros’ manager, Dusty Baker, echoes this sentiment, stating, “I think he’s going to have an outstanding year…he’s just a ballplayer.” Bregman’s talent, competitive drive, and ability to make adjustments are unmatched and are respected by veterans of the game.
But, as Bregman makes his spring debut, there’s one adjustment that he and the Astros will need to make – the pitch timer. With a quicker pace of each at-bat, Bregman acknowledges the challenge but is ready to adapt and make the necessary adjustments.
In short, Bregman is a throwback player, one who embodies hard work, grit, and talent. He’s consistent in his actions and personality, making him a valuable asset to the Astros. So, get ready to witness the greatness of Alex Bregman in the 2023 season – it’s sure to be a memorable one.
