"I was super-happy to come to a good organization like the Astros, an organization that was up-and-coming," Bregman told The Arizona Republic on Saturday. "But, yeah, I was pissed. I wanted to be the No. 1 overall pick. Part of the reason I wear No. 2 is because of that."
Bregman previously said he wore No. 2 in part to honor childhood idol and former New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter.
