Astros' Alex Bregman begins road back to team after injury
Alex Bregman is a sorely missed part of the Astros' lineup, but we now know about the first steps to get him back on the field.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Alex Bregman's road back to the Houston Astros' lineup after more than a month away from the team is underway.

Bregman is beginning a rehab assignment with the Sugar Land Skeeters in AAA ball. The Skeeters are in the middle of a road series in Oklahoma City.

Bregman has been inactive since June 17 when he was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left quad strain.

The third baseman has played in 59 games this season, logging 36 hits on 150 at-bats, with 34 RBIs.

Fans closer to home may get a chance to see Bregman play in Sugar Land when the Skeeters begin a six-game series at Constellation Field on Thursday against El Paso.
