Astros’ Alex Bregman undergoes elbow surgery

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman underwent arthroscopic surgery on Friday to remove loose bodies in his right elbow, the team announced.

Bregman will be “limited” at the start of spring training, according to a statement disseminated Friday morning, but the Astros expect their reigning All-Star infielder to be ready to play prior to opening day against the Rays on March 28.

Bregman approached the team around New Year’s Day to complain of discomfort, general manager Jeff Luhnow said. The loose bodies were discovered in a doctor visit “a couple days ago,” leading Bregman and the club to make a mutual decision for an operation.

So, which is the bigger euphemism, “loose bodies” or “limited”?

MLB playoffs: Alex Bregman says Astros belong on ‘primetime television’ after day-game relegation in ALDS

I’m inclined to be sympathetic- but, then again, my perspective is skewed by being a resident of the West Coast, which gives me a perspective on live broadcasting different from that of the denizens of the Eastern and Central Time Zones…..

Trevor Bauer’s combative Twitter persona comes back to haunt him vs. Alex Bregman

If there was a list of MLB hitters that Cleveland Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer didn’t want to yield a home run to, Alex Bregman might be near the top. Unfortunately for the outspoken pitcher, that’s exactly what happened in Game 2 of the ALDS.

Facing Bregman in relief during the seventh inning, Bauer allowed a no-doubter off the third baseman that put the Houston Astros up 3-1 in a game that gave them a commanding 2-0 lead in the first round of the MLB playoffs.

The homer was Bregman’s second this series and his sixth homer in four career postseason series. The other pitchers he’s gone deep against? Chris Sale (twice), Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen and Corey Kluber.

In case you need a reminder that using Twitter is a terrible idea…..
