The Houston Astros offense, much like last season, started the year firing on all cylinders.

They scored the second most points in MLB on opening weekend, in their series against the Los Angeles Angels.

Yordan Alvarez hit a home run, Kyle Tucker had two in the same game and Alex Bregman topped an impressive lineup of hitters in Week 1.

“Alex Bregman has won the American League Player of the Week. He went 6 for 14 against the Angels,” Astros Beat Writer tweeted at the Houston Chronicle Chandler Rome.

It’s been a fruitful start to the season for Bregman, who suffered several injuries in 2021 that limited his performance.

Through the first four games, Bregman went .429/.429/.857 with two home runs, four runs scored and six RBIs.

He also contributed, as usual, to a stellar defense in the hot corner.

Eager to return to the elite

It was a stellar performance that signals his intentions to return to MLB’s elite third baseman base.

After cutting .286/.394/.532 in 2018 and .296/.423/.592 in 2019, injuries have started to affect Bregman’s career.

In 2020, the shortened season, he cut a modest .242/.350/.451, and last year his line was at .270/.355/.422.

His performance in 2020 and 2021 was by no means bad; but those who have seen him play know that he is capable of much more.

He’s worked hard in the offseason and is ready to finally put the hamstring and quad issues behind him over the past two seasons.

If his early performances are any indication, Bregman is much healthier and ready to bring the Astros back to the World Series.

In Houston, fans are hoping to be able to win the Fall Classic for the first time since 2017, and they want to do it with Bregman in the lead.
