Astros’ Alex Bregman slowed by back tightness

[ad_1]

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman left Wednesday’s 11-5 victory over the Miami Marlins because of back stiffness.

Bregman walked in the first inning and was replaced after the second. He was playing his third spring training game following arthroscopic elbow surgery on Jan. 11.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Bregman probably will be held out a day and return to the lineup on Friday.
