6 reasons to get excited about the Astros in 2022
2 of 6
A healthy Alex Bregman
In his last three fully healthy seasons (2017-2019), Bregman averaged 30 home runs, 95 RBI and an OPS+ of 146. In an injury-plagued 2021, Bregman hit 12 home runs, with 55 RBI and an OPS+ of 113.
That OPS+ is still 13 points above average and pretty good, but I think I speak for all Astro fans when I say I’m excited about the potential for Bregman to approach an OPS+ of 150, with 27-30 home runs and 100 RBI in 2022.
The Astros made it to the World Series with a slightly above average, but obviously not one hundred percent Bregman and those fans have to be excited at the prospect of a healthy Breggy for 145 or so games.
