(KRQE)-Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman said he was hoping he would get a chance to do a rehab assignment with the Sugar Land Skeeters and play in his hometown Albuquerque at Isotopes Park, but he is not ready. Bregman told KRQE Sports Friday night that he is about a week out from being able to do so.
