Houston Astros DFS Notes

Alex Bregman (quad, hamstring) confirmed Wednesday that he will play "a couple more" minor league rehab games. Bregman was pulled off his minor league rehab assignment earlier this week because the 20-day window had closed, but there's no new setback and it sounds like he will return to Triple-A Sugar Land on Friday. That would put him in line to perhaps be activated by the Astros early next week. The star third baseman has been on the shelf since mid-June because of a left quad strain and then a subsequent hamstring issue.
