Yankees-Astros preview

HOUSTON -- As if he were affixing a cherry on top of the sundae that was the weekend sweep of American League West rival Los Angeles, Astros manager A.J. Hinch, unprompted, shared some important news before the assembled media vacated his postgame presser on Sunday.

The Astros (54-44), 10 games above .500 for the first time this season, were promoting top prospect Alex Bregman so he could make his major league debut against the Yankees Monday at Minute Maid Park.

Bregman, the second overall pick of the 2015 draft, has lived up to the hype that came with his selection. In his first full professional season, Bregman opened 2016 with Double-A Corpus Christi and hit .297/.415/.559 with 14 home runs and 46 RBIs in 62 games. After earning a promotion to Triple-A Fresno, Bregman hit .356/.397/.685 with six homers and 15 RBIs in 17 games. His bat has earned raves throughout scouting circles and when midseason prospect rankings were recently released, Bregman was ranked first overall by ESPN.
