MLB All-Star Game 2016 Live Stream is here. For the initial seven innings of the All-Star Futures Game, Alex Bregman and the U.S. group looked relentless. The Houston Astros prospect had a triple, twofold and single in his initial three at-bats, and when he came to bat in the base of the seventh with the U.S. driving 3-2, he was very much aware of what he expected to leave a mark on the world.
"Everybody in the burrow would experience considerable difficulties I wasn't striving for it," he said of being a grand slam shy of hitting for the cycle. "You needed to." Things went into disrepair in the last two innings, as the World group scored nine keeps running in the last two innings to transform a nearby diversion into a 11-3 defeat – and end the U.S's. six-amusement winning streak. Bregman got one more opportunity to get the tricky grand slam – against a pitcher he hit one against on July 4 playing for Class AAA Fresno, left-hander Adalberto Mejia.
He struck out, much to the consternation of his fellow team members. "Not everyone gets this open door. I was simply attempting to absorb it and have some good times," Bregman said. "I'm energized for what's to come. I need to help the Astros win diversions now … I have a feeling that I can contribute and at whatever point that time comes, I'll be prepared." The 22-year-old played both shortstop and third base in the Futures Game, as he's done this season in the minors.
It's not a stretch to see him playing third in the majors later this season, nearby shortstop Carlos Correa as a component of the Astros' infield without bounds. Regardless of the way that the last time he played the position went ahead the U.S's. Under-18 national group – one that had Addison Russell at short – he appears to have taken care of the switch effortlessly. "With the Astros, we move so much, a fraction of the time regardless i'm playing shortstop. It's been a smooth move as such. I've appreciated all of it." In any case, his bat might be significantly more imperative to the Astros.
Despite the fact that his improvement as a hitter appeared to slow down toward the end of 2015, Bregman added 20 pounds to his edge in the offseason and took a shot at changing his methodology at the plate. "Anything on the ground to one side of the infield is an out. I found that out the most difficult way possible my first half season," he said before the diversion. "I returned to the planning phase this keep going offseason, put on 20 pounds since I felt powerless toward the end of a year ago and rolled out an attitude improvement: anything center into in I'm going to attempt and hit noticeable all around to left-focus.
Anything without end, I'm going to attempt and hit a twofold the other way." The progressions have made him an a great deal more powerful hitter. At Class AA Corpus Christi (Texas) and was hitting .297/.415/.559 with 14 homers through the end of June when he was elevated to Fresno.
