The Bregmans announced Knox’s arrival on Instagram, with a photo of the newborn swaddled in a blanket and wearing a green cap. Since then, Bregman’s Instagram account has featured several photos of both Reagan and Knox.

Alex returned from paternity leave on Aug. 2 and subsequently, he has been capitalizing on a power burst to put up those Player of the Month numbers.

Through the first 61 games of the 2022 season, Bregman was hitting just .214 with a .331 on-base percentage and a .363 slugging percentage.

Bregman spoke about the struggles and injuries he’s dealt with in 2020 and 2021 and the turnaround that has started in the second half of 2022.

“I know everybody always says 2018 or 2019, but I think each year is different, and definitely I’m trying to get back to the mechanics I had those two years,” he told “The previous two, mechanically, I wasn’t the same. My front hip was wide open and it was making me spin and cut the baseball instead of stay through it and be able to drive it. We’ve been working hard this year, and a lot of people have helped me out working in the cage. It’s been good the last few months of being more consistent.”
