Comeback Player

Bregman had a monster 2018 and 2019 and has been dealing with injuries ever since. I think he is finally fully healthy, and if his swagger can come back some this year as a soon-to-be father, I expect him to get back to his previous self.

He needs to really let himself be exciting again, whether that’s in the form of staring at the camera and carrying his bat to first base, or whether that’s simply through his play on the field. I expect a monster year from him in 2022, especially as he is now the dominant player on the left side of the infield.
