2015 Leaf Trinity Alex Bregman

Alex Bregman was the #2 overall pick of the 2015 draft, and entered 2016 as one of the top 50 prospects in the game. He opened the season in AA, was quickly promoted, and would join the major league team in July. His numbers in the minors this season: .306/.406/.580 with 20 HR.

He started off a little slow. In July he went .045/.125/.045 over 22 at bats. But he bounced back in August, going .274/.333/.479 with 5 HR. He would go .323/.344/.629 the rest of the way.

I think its says something that he was able to right the ship so quickly. Starting off with terrible numbers could get into some players heads, but Bregman seems to have adapted quickly to major league pitching.

And while his bat looks like it is going to be solid, he also has some nice defensive value. He is able to play LF, SS and 3B. That kind of flexibility is really nice, especially when it comes from a player that can also offer a plus bat.

With Correa, Springer, Bregman and Altuve, the Astros seem like they are just a couple pieces away from contenders again.
