Only time will tell, of course, but Bregman, the Astros third baseman, said on Instagram that his "pregame video work" was watching Eovaldi, then with the Tampa Bay Rays back on June 20 before his trade to Boston, give up back-to-back-to-back homers to Jose Altuve, Bregman and George Springer.
Here's the video, via @CespedesBBQ on Twitter:
Those will be likely be three of the first batters Eovaldi faces Tuesday at Minute Maid Park in Houston when the ALCS - tied at 1 - resumes with Eovaldi on the mound for the Red Sox. Springer now leads off and Altuve bats second. Sox fans undoubtedly are hoping Eovaldi has a little more success than the video Bregman is studying.
