HOUSTON -- Alex Bregman, one of the Astros' most anticipated prospects in recent years, will make his Major League debut Monday night against the Yankees at Minute Maid Park. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said following Sunday's 13-3 win over the Angels that the club will purchase the contract of Bregman and designate infielder Danny Worth for assignment. Hinch said Bregman will make his debut Monday, but he didn't say what position he'd play. He's expected to primarily get at-bats at third base, left field and designated hitter, but was drafted as a shortstop.
