The Houston Astros have had series of injuries to their starting pitching. Now it appears the injury bug has turned its focus to the Astros fielders. Carlos Correa went down with a torn ligament, George Springer exited Monday's game early, and now it's Alex Bregman’s turn.
Bregman exited Tuesday’s game in the third inning with what the Astros describing as right hamstring discomfort — reports the Houston Chronicle’s, Jake Kaplan.

Bregman didn't show any signs of injury before exiting the game. But Bregman did lead off the third with a triple and he scored the first run of the game on a sacfrice fly.
Bregman, 23, was having one of his best months as an Astros in July. He was batting .328 (31x64) with 10 doubles, two home runs, and four RBIs.
The Astros will be without Correa until September and Springer will likely be back during the Detriot Tigers series this weekend.
