Houston Astros place Alex Bregman on paternity list, recall Taylor Jones from Triple-A

The Houston Astros announced Monday that Alex Bregman has been placed on the paternity list, offering a maximum of three days off. As a result, the club recalled first baseman Taylor Jones from Triple-A Sugar Land.

Bregman was replaced by Chas McCormick in the starting lineup, moving Aledmys Díaz to third base. Jones also played third base and left field for the Space Cowboys and is down .239/.330/.421 this season.

2022 is Jones’ first season in the majors. A trip to the COVID-19 injured list last season kept him out of an impressive offense in August. The Astros signed Marwin Gonzalez shortly thereafter, leaving Jones to reside in Sugar Land.
