Astros' Baker: Bregman will be out 'a while' due to quad strain
"It will be a while," Baker said Friday, according to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle.
Houston placed Bregman on the 10-day injured list Thursday, one day after he suffered the strain while running the bases. The 27-year-old is hitting .275/.359/.428 with seven homers and 34 RBIs across 262 plate appearances this season.
Switch-hitting infielder Abraham Toro will likely take over at the hot corner while Bregman is sidelined. Toro, who owns a 1.078 OPS at Triple-A Sugar Land, has appeared in seven games for the Astros this year.
