What may the future hold for the young Houston infielder?

Here's a Crystal Ball, by reader request, for Houston Astros infielder Alex Bregman.

The Crystal Ball is NOT a PREDICTION in the sense of me saying "this is how the guy will turn out." The idea is to generate discussion about a player by presenting one possible outcome for his career, based on what we currently know about him.

I try to make them logical, based on the outcomes of players who were similar at the same stage of their career. Sometimes a CB represents a maximal outcome, sometimes it is more of a middle ground. I avoid CBs with "he blows out his knee at age 26 and never plays again" because who wants to read that.
