Rome Chandler of the Houston Chronicle. “I just want to trust the rehabilitation process.” I’m not really. It will be based on how I progress and how I feel. But there is also a real timeline. ”
There also seems to be some uncertainty about the severity of Bregman’s injury, as he said he didn’t know if it was a Grade 1 or Grade 2 stump. Director Dusty Baker said Bregman will be out of action “for a while,” which seems to indicate that the third baseman will miss well beyond the 10-day minimum. On the positive side for Houston, the team has only continued to win even without Bregman, as the Astros have pitched a six-game winning streak to pass in an Athletic game for head coach AL West.
