Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, three RBI and a walk Monday as the Astros topped the Angels 10-7.

Correa has walked in five straight games. Last month, he had one stretch in which he went 14 straight games without a walk. Hopefully, it means he's seeing the ball better and his power numbers will start to pick back up. He's been a disappointment for fantasy purposes, but the upside hasn't gone anywhere.

Carlos Correa (ankle) will return to the Astros' starting lineup Tuesday against the Cardinals.

He's back after sitting out three games with a sprained ankle. The reigning AL Rookie of the Year will hit fourth versus left-hander Jaime Garcia. That's a change of pace for Correa, who has never hit cleanup in his career. The slumping shortstop has hit just one homer over his last 23 games.

Carlos Correa (ankle) remained out of the Astros' lineup Sunday.

Correa went through running and hitting drills before Saturday's game, but he'll sit out a third straight contest Sunday.

The Astros also have Colby Rasmus on the bench against lefty Matt Moore, as Jake Marisnick is in left field.

Carlos Correa (ankle) participated in running and hitting drills before Saturday's game.

He hit in an off-field batting cage and took some ground balls at shortstop during BP. Correa also did some running, though he was only going at about 60 percent. "I didn't feel great, but it felt good," said Correa. "Hopefully, I will be back there soon." Astros manager A.J. Hinch hasn't ruled Correa out for Sunday's series finale against Tampa Bay.

He's been diagnosed with a sprained left ankle and is day-to-day. Correa suffered the injury running to first base Thursday against Texas.

The reigning AL Rookie of the Year has hit just .248 since May 1.

Correa finished 3-for-5 with a triple, two RBI, and a run scored. George Springer opened the bottom of the 12th with a double and then advanced to third base on a Jose Altuve sacrifice. That's when Correa hit a shot down the right field line to win it. Correa has started to mash again after a mysterious slump and Houston has won seven of its last eight.
Jun 4 - 9:17 PM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and two runs scored against the Athletics on Friday.

Correa smoked a triple in the fourth inning which traveled an estimated 440 feet. How is this possible? Well, it landed on Tal’s Hill in distant center field. Fantasy owners would have preferred the home run, but it was another fine night for the young shortstop. He has hit safely in six straight games and has driven in eight runs over his last seven contests.

Carlos Correa hit a pinch-hit three-run shot in the top of the 13th inning as the Astros beat the Angels 8-6 on Sunday afternoon in Anaheim.

Correa had been stuck in an offensive rut and was supposed to get a mental day of rest in the series finale at Angel Stadium, but Astros manager A.J. Hinch called for him to bat for Tony Kemp with two outs in the 13th after Tyler White and Marwin Gonzalez singled against Anaheim reliever Mike Morin. Correa did his thing, jacking a three-run, go-ahead shot to left-center. The star 21-year-old shortstop has 30 homers and 93 RBI through his first 149 major league games. (He also has 22 career steals).

Carlos Correa hit an RBI single in the 13th inning to give the Astros a walk-off, 3-2 win over the Orioles on Tuesday.

Correa was 0-for-5 with two strikeouts before delivering the game-winning hit in the 13th. He's been streaky in his first full season in the majors, striking out in a surprising 25.1 percent of his plate appearances while also hitting seven homers with eight steals on the year. It all adds up to a .250/.343/.409 line that should be more attractive by season's end.
May 25 - 1:10 AM

Carlos Correa had a terrific day at the dish in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Mariners, going 3-for-3 with a homer and two RBI.

Correa added an RBI single in the fifth inning to increase their advantage to 4-0. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .288/.403/.500 with five homers and 15 RBI on the season.
