Carlos Correa went 3-for-6 with a homer in an extra-innings victory over the Dodgers in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

Correa's homer came after Jose Altuve had hit a blast in the top of the 10th off of Josh Fields; giving the Astros a two-run cushion. Turns out the Astros would need both runs with the Dodgers scoring two in the bottom of the inning in what was a terrific baseball game. Correa also knocked in a run off of Kenley Jansen in the top of the eighth, pulling Houston to within a run at 3-2. This is going to be an amazing World Series. Correa will look to stay hot in Game 3 on Friday against Yu Darvish.

Carlos Correa homered and hit a walk-off RBI double in the ninth inning of Saturday's ALCS Game 2 win over the Yankees.

Correa's opposite field solo homer in the fourth inning -- which stirred some controversy after a young fan was thought to have reached over the right field wall to snag the ball while still in the field of play -- stood as the Astros' only run until the ninth when, after a Jose Altuve single, he swatted an Aroldis Chapman pitch to right, allowing Altuve to race around and score the winning run. Correa has a hit in every game game since Game 1 of their first-round series against the Red Sox, owning a .429 batting average this postseason.
Oct 14 - 8:49 PM

Carlos Correa belted a two-run homer as the Astros fell to the Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS on Sunday afternoon.

Correa's two-run shot off of Doug Fister gave the Astros an early 3-0 lead in the first inning, but that would wind up being the extent of their offense in the ballgame. Correa finished the day 1-for-5. He's hitting .231/.286/.769 with a pair of homers and six RBI through the first four games this postseason.
Oct 8 - 6:20 PM

Carlos Correa belted a two-run homer and added a two-RBI double in the Astros' ALDS Game 2 victory over the Red Sox on Friday.

Correa followed a Jose Altuve two-out single in the bottom of the first inning with a no-doubter into the left field seats off of Drew Pomeranz. He later plated two more with a two-bagger down the line off of Addison Reed in the sixth. Correa also drew a walk, reaching base three times on the day. He certainly made up for going hitless in Game 1.
Oct 6 - 6:14 PM

Carlos Correa remained scorching hot at the plate Thursday, finishing 4-for-4 with a double, a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in the Astros' 12-2 drubbing of the Red Sox.

Correa actually could have had a slightly bigger night, even, but a ground-rule double in the fourth inning prevent Jose Altuve from scoring a run on Correa's dime. Still, he's got three homers in the last two days and has 15 hits in his last 25 at-bats to raise his line to .315/.389/.553 through 107 games. The 23-year-old has 24 homers, 84 RBI and 81 runs scored on the year.
Sep 29 - 1:42 AM

Carlos Correa finished 4-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI in the Astros' 12-2 thrashing of the Rangers on Wednesday.

Correa opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the top of the first inning and then he went off for a double in the top of the third, a solo shot in the top of the fifth, and a two-run blast in the top of the sixth. Correa showed diminished offensive output in the first few weeks upon his September 3 return from a torn thumb ligament, but the 23-year-old shortstop is getting red-hot now with the playoffs approaching. Look out, world.
Sep 27 - 5:51 PM

Carlos Correa drove in three of the Astros' 14 runs in Tuesday's blowout win over the Rangers.

The star shortstop doubled in two runs in the first inning, singled in the fourth and doubled in another run in the fifth. Correa entered the night hitting just .208/.265/.286 over 20 games since being activated from the disabled list, so the Astros would obviously like to see him get going heading into the postseason.
Sep 26 - 11:48 PM

Carlos Correa went 3-for-3 with three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's defeat of the Angels.

He singled home Alex Bregman in the first inning, doubled home Bregman in the fifth and plated Marwin Gonzalez with a single in the seventh. The young shortstop also worked a walk in the ballgame. Correa, who just turned 23 yesterday, spent seven weeks on the disabled list with a torn thumb ligament over the summer but has been a menace at the plate when healthy. He has a .302 batting average with 21 homers, 74 RBI and 73 runs scored in just 102 games.
Sep 23 - 4:40 PM

Carlos Correa is not in the Astros' lineup Friday.

He's just getting a breather. Marwin Gonzalez will cover shortstop.
Sep 22 - 4:17 PM

Carlos Correa hit a two-run homer in the Astros' win over the Mariners on Sunday.

It was his first home run since he returned from a torn thumb ligament on September 3. That injury can sometimes have lasting effects on a hitter's power stroke. Correa is up to 21 homers and 71 RBI in 98 total games this season and he's sporting an excellent .304/.379/.528 overall batting line.
Sep 17 - 5:12 PM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI in a win over the Mariners on Friday.

He drove in Jose Altuve with a double in the first inning, then came around to score on an Evan Gattis single to center. Correa got picked off first base by catcher Mike Zunino later in the ballgame. The young shortstop, who turns 23 years old next week, is already one of the best hitters in the league. He missed seven weeks with a torn thumb ligament this summer and is batting .306/.381/.525 with 20 home runs and 69 RBI in 96 games.
Sep 16 - 12:35 AM

Astros activated SS Carlos Correa from the 10-day disabled list.

Correa wound up missing seven weeks following surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb. The 22-year-old played six rehab games, going 7-for-24 (.292) at the plate. The Astros might give him some extra days off down the stretch just to be safe, but obviously Correa needs to be started in all fantasy leagues.
Sep 3 - 10:42 AM

Carlos Correa (thumb) will work out on the field prior to Saturday's game and is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

Correa has made it through a week's worth of minor league rehab games without any issue and is ready to rejoin the big league club. The 22-year-old is hitting .320/.400/.566 with 20 homers and 67 RBI in his 84 games this season.
Sep 2 - 12:09 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that he hopes Carlos Correa (thumb) will be ready to come off the disabled list Sunday.

Correa has played over a week's worth of rehab games and hasn't had any issues with his thumb. The Astros will probably give him extra days off down the stretch just to be safe, but fantasy owners obviously need to have him in their lineups starting next week.
