Alex Bregman was hit on the back by a pitch on Wednesday, making him the seventh Houston Astros player drilled in five spring training games.

Some opposing players have called for retaliation against the Astros following Major League Baseball's finding that Houston broke rules against electronic sign stealing en route to its 2017 World Series title and again in 2018.

"I think I got hit, like, 10 times last year or something like that," Bregman said. "One of them got me good last year, but that one was just a split-finger."
