Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman returns to the lineup Wednesday after missing the past two-plus months with a quad injury.

The Astros finish up a three-game series against the Kansas City Royals in a matinee at Houston.

“Hey y’all … it’s been a while … see y’all this afternoon,” Bregman tweeted Wednesday morning.

Bregman has been out since June 16 with the injury. He played a rehab game for Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday night.

Bregman was batting .275 with seven home runs and 34 RBIs in 59 games before landing on the injured list.

The Astros enter Wednesday’s action with a 4 1/2-game lead in the American League West. The Astros and Royals have split the first two games of the set.
