Latest MLB News and Rumors | Alex Bregman starts hitting after his surgery, Melky Cabrera and more

Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman is now cleared to hit again. He will take his first swing since undergoing surgery on his right wrist in November of last year.

Bregman suffered a wrist injury in September and was thus playing during the MLB postseason with the Astros, before undergoing surgery.

It was the close of a major league campaign in which he dealt with multiple leg injuries that limited him to just 91 games in the regular season. Bregman is expected to be ready for spring training.
