The Houston Astros have had a stream of prospects come through Houston since general manager Jeff Luhnow rebuild the minor league system in Houston. Only a few prospects' arrivals have made national news like George Springer, Carlos Correa, and Lance McCullers. The news addition to that list is Alex Bregman.

Bregman was officially added to the major league roster on Monday and meet with the Houston media for the first time before his first start against the New York Yankees.

Bregman will wear the No. 2, played third base, and bat in the No. 6 hole in his first start on Monday.

Bregman talked about when he found out about his call-up, who he has at the game, and his interaction with fans thus far.

Bregman's new teammates talked about last night's photo at Carlos Correa's house:
