Astros placed SS Carlos Correa on the 10-day disabled list with a torn ligament in his left thumb.

Correa is expected to miss the next 6-8 weeks, putting him out until early-to-mid September. The star shortstop has been battling left thumb discomfort for a while and he aggravated the injury on a swing Monday night against the Mariners. He should be healthy in time for the playoffs and the Astros have a massive lead in the American League West standings, but this news obviously still stings. Marwin Gonzalez will be the primary fill-in at short.

Carlos Correa has been diagnosed with a jammed left thumb and will be re-evaluated Tuesday.

Correa injured the thumb on a swing Monday and it appears it was an aggravation of an injury that cost him a game earlier this month. We'll obviously know more about his status on Tuesday, but he would seem to be a good bet to miss at least a game or two.
Jul 17 - 10:08 PM

Carlos Correa was lifted from Monday's game versus the Mariners with an apparent left hand/wrist injury.

Correa tweaked something on a swing in the fourth inning in his second plate appearance of the game. He missed time earlier this month with a left thumb injury, but it's unclear whether this might be related. The Astros should have an update soon on their star shortstop.
Jul 17 - 9:33 PM

Carlos Correa is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

It looks like he's just getting a breather. Marwin Gonzalez is at shortstop.
Jul 16 - 11:31 AM

Carlos Correa homered twice as part of a four-hit afternoon Sunday in the Astros’ emphatic 19-1 win over the Blue Jays.

That’s how you finish the first half in style. Correa began his day with a first-inning single and followed that by slugging a solo home run off J.A. Happ in the second. He continued his carnage by slashing an RBI single in the fourth before capping the afternoon with a towering three-run shot in the seventh. Correa’s five RBI were a season-high. He had a brilliant first half for Houston, hitting .325 with 20 homers and 65 RBI.
Jul 9 - 5:02 PM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Correa got the scoring started for the Astros with a two-run shot off Aaron Sanchez in the first inning. He extended his career-long hitting streak to 15 games in the process. It’s the longest active streak in the majors. Correa’s slow April is a distant memory, as he’s now batting .320/.397/.560 with 18 home runs and 60 RBI through 79 games.
Jul 7 - 10:30 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) singled and drew a walk in his return to the lineup Thursday.

Correa missed Wednesday's game after injuring his thumb on a slide. The All-Star is batting .320/.397/.553 with 17 homers and 58 RBI this season.
Jul 7 - 8:06 AM

Carlos Correa (thumb) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Braves.

Correa was forced out of Tuesday's win over the Braves while sliding into home head-first, jamming his thumb in the process. While X-rays returned negative and Correa was hoping to be able to play on Wednesday, the Astros will give him another day to rest up. Marwin Gonzalez is manning shortstop and hitting fifth in his place. Correa could potentially be available to pinch hit should he be needed later in the game.
Jul 5 - 4:21 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) said he thinks he can play Wednesday against the Braves.

Correa left Tuesday night's blowout victory in Atlanta after getting his left thumb stuck in the shin guard of Braves catcher Tyler Flowers on a head-first slide at home plate, but X-rays turned up negative and he told reporters after the game that it "should be fine." It's not clear if there is an MRI scheduled. Houston may have survived a big scare here.
Jul 5 - 12:00 AM

X-rays came back negative on Carlos Correa's left thumb.

That's obviously good news, but there are probably more scans to come. Correa got his left thumb stuck in the shinguard of Braves catcher Tyler Flowers on a head-first slide into home plate Tuesday night at SunTrust Park and had to exit the game. Marwin Gonzalez took over at shortstop for the Astros.
Jul 4 - 10:35 PM

Carlos Correa left Tuesday's game against the Braves with left thumb discomfort.

That's the initial word from the Astros, who say he's day-to-day. Correa injured the thumb on an awkward head-first slide into the shinguard of Braves catcher Tyler Flowers in the top of the fourth inning Tuesday night at SunTrust Park. Marwin Gonzalez took over at shortstop, with Nori Aoki entering to play left field. Correa will be reevaluated Wednesday, possibly with an MRI.
Jul 4 - 9:39 PM

Carlos Correa was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Braves with an apparent injury.

Correa appeared to get tagged in the face while sliding into home plate in the top of the fourth inning. Houston led 7-0 at the time of his exit, so it may have been a precautionary thing. There should be an update soon from Atlanta's SunTrust Park.
Jul 4 - 9:28 PM

Carlos Correa went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles and three RBI in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Yankees.

Correa hit a two-run double off Luis Severino in the fourth inning and added an RBI single in the fifth. This was his second four-hit performance of the season and bumped his hitting streak to 12 games. Overall, the star shortstop is slashing .319/.394/.554 with 17 homers, 58 RBI and 56 runs scored in 76 games. Just about the only demerit you could toss at him for his work during the current campaign would be that he has yet to attempt a stolen base after swiping double-digit bags each of his first two seasons in the bigs. Otherwise, it has been nothing short of a dynamite year for Correa.
Jul 2 - 5:53 PM

Carlos Correa hit a pair of two-run homers Thursday to lead the Astros to a 6-1 victory over the Athletics.

Correa had a .658 OPS in April. Since then, he's hit .342 with 14 homers, 45 RBI and 43 runs scored in 51 games. He hasn't so much as attempted a steal this year after going 14-for-18 as a rookie and 13-for-16 last year, but as long as he's hitting like prime A-Rod, his fantasy owners won't mind.
