Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in the Astros' defeat of the Twins on Monday.

Correa scored on an RBI single by J.D. Davis in the top of the sixth inning and again on a Marwin Gonzalez RBI double in the top of the eighth. Those were the only runs of the night for the Astros, but it was all they needed with Justin Verlander, Brad Peacock, Chris Devenski, and Ken Giles combining to shut out the Twins.

Carlos Correa (toe) is back in the Astros' lineup Friday.

Correa didn't start Wednesday after bruising his left big toe earlier in the week, but the ailment isn't considered to be a big deal. He's at shortstop and batting fourth against Luis Perdomo and the Padres.
Apr 6 - 4:29 PM

Carlos Correa will get the day off in Wednesday's series finale against the Orioles.

Correa went 2-for-2 with an inside-the-park home run, three RBI, and three runs scored in Tuesday night's victory over the Orioles, but he's been battling some discomfort in his left big toe and Houston has an off day on Thursday, which will allow the star shortstop two full days of rest. The toe issue is not a long-term concern for Correa, who's slashing .474/.522/.947 through 19 at-bats.
Apr 4 - 12:08 AM

Carlos Correa had a huge day at the plate in Tuesday's victory over the Orioles, going 2-for-2 with a homer, three runs scored and three RBI.

Correa hit a two-run inside-the-park home run to get the Astros on the board in the first inning and tacked on a sacrifice fly in the third inning. He also drew a walk in the contest. The 23-year-old has been outstanding in the early going, slashing .474/.522/.947 with a pair of long balls and eight RBI.
Apr 3 - 11:55 PM

Carlos Correa (toe) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

Correa made an early exit Monday night due to a bruised left big toe, but fortunately it's not a major concern. He's hitting cleanup against Mike Wright, Jr.
Apr 3 - 3:57 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Carlos Correa (toe) is day-to-day.

Correa fouled a ball off his left big toe on Sunday in Arlington, Texas and was removed after the second inning of Monday's home opener against the Orioles due to lingering discomfort. It doesn't sound like anything to worry about in the long term. Marwin Gonzalez took over at shortstop in the top of the third inning Monday, with J.D. Davis entering to play first base.
Apr 2 - 10:32 PM

Carlos Correa was removed from Monday's game against the Orioles with discomfort in his left big toe.

Correa fouled a ball off his left foot over the weekend in Arlington, Texas and his early exit from Houston's home opener could be related. There should be an update soon. Marwin Gonzalez shifted from first base to shortstop to begin the top of the third inning, with J.D. Davis taking over at first.
Apr 2 - 8:10 PM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-5 with a two-run double, stolen base and two runs scored in a win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Correa, like many of his Astros teammates, has shot out of the gate to start the 2018 season, collecting seven hits in 16 at-bats, including three doubles and a homer. He's also driven in runs in three of the first four games. Correa stole just two bases in three attempts last year but has more speed than that, so the stolen base this early is a good sign. If he adds that to his repertoire, it could be a huge year for the 23-year-old.
Apr 1 - 7:01 PM

Carlos Correa went 4-for-5 and cracked a two-run homer during a 9-3 win over the Rangers on Saturday.

His blast off reliever Jesse Chavez in the seventh inning helped his team pull away late. He also doubled and scored in the third inning. The star shortstop missed two months last year due to a thumb injury but was able to slash an impressive .315/.391/.550 with 24 bombs and 84 RBI in just 109 games.
Mar 31 - 8:43 PM

Carlos Correa hit a grand slam in the first inning of an 8-1 victory over the Brewers on Tuesday.

The slam came off Brewers starter Zach Davies. It was the third and final homer of the spring for Correa, who finishes the preseason with a .300 average and an .854 OPS. Assuming he stays healthy, he'll likely be one of the best shortstops in all of baseball in 2018.
Mar 27 - 5:14 PM

Carlos Correa went 1-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored during Friday's spring win over the Nationals.

The star shortstop pounded a double that plated Marwin Gonzalez in the third inning. He also worked a base-on-balls in the contest. Correa got off to a very slow start to the spring schedule but has been on fire of late. He seems poised to begin the season on a high note for the defending champions.
Mar 23 - 10:00 PM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 and hit his first spring homer Monday against the Mets.

Correa was 5-for-26 with no extra-base hits and 12 strikeouts when we checked in on him last week. He's 8-for-17 with two extra-base hits and four strikeouts since. It was only ever a matter of time.
Mar 19 - 5:43 PM

Carlos Correa struck out all three times he was up Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Correa has a 12/1 K/BB and no extra-base hits in 33 at-bats this spring. He similarly struggled last spring, batting .192 with no homers and one double in 26 at-bats. We wouldn't worry this time around, either.
Mar 14 - 4:53 PM

Houston is going with the same lineup on Wednesday for Game 7 of the World Series that they used in Game 6 on Tuesday.

No reason to make big changes now in the biggest game in the history of the franchise. Houston's lineup is: George Springer CF, Alex Bregman 3B, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Brian McCann C, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Josh Reddick RF, Lance McCullers SP.
