Alex Bregman Leaves Game With Hamstring Injury
Last night the Corpus Christi Hooks lost to the Frisco RoughRiders by a score of 9-3. To make things worse, Astros top prospect Alex Bregman left the game in the 7th with an apparent hamstring injury.
The #2 overall pick in the 2015 draft was removed from the game after limping his way to first base running out a grounder to third base. Hooks manager Rodney Linares stated “We don’t know. He’s going to be re-evaled. It’s a hamstring issues. We’re looking at it right now.”
The seriousness of the injury is not known yet but these type of injuries can take a while to heal and are easily re-aggravated. This morning Alex Bregman posted this on twitter:
Small speed bump… Get through this and then back to crushing….
