Carlos Correa blasted a three-run homer on Sunday, propelling Puerto Rico to a 9-3 victory over Italy in the World Baseball Classic.

Correa finished the afternoon 1-for-2 plus a pair of walks and two runs scored. The superstar shortstop already looks to be in midseason form and is poised to take a major step forward heading into 2017.

Carlos Correa has been cleared to participate in drills.

Correa dealt with some pain after having all four of his wisdom teeth removed last Thursday, but he's slowly getting back to normal. He already did some hitting on Tuesday and will now progress to full baseball activities.

Carlos Correa hit in the batting cage on Tuesday.

Correa has been limited in the early days of camp after having four wisdom teeth removed last Thursday. However, he hopes to be cleared for full activity before Wednesday's workout. He'll be back to normal soon enough.
Feb 21 - 8:43 AM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Monday morning that the plan is to have Carlos Correa "up and running fully in the next couple days."

Correa had his wisdom teeth removed last Thursday and was given the weekend off from baseball activities, though the young shortstop did get in a little cardio. It's no big deal here in February.
Feb 20 - 9:56 AM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that Carlos Correa "may be limited for the first couple days" of full-squad workouts after getting his wisdom teeth removed Thursday.

It's no big deal, obviously, especially since spring training is a little longer than normal this year. Correa batted .274/.361/.451 with 20 homers, 96 RBI and 13 steals in 2016 in his first full season in the majors.

Carlos Correa is absent from the Astros' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting an extra day of rest heading into the offseason. Alex Bregman, Evan Gattis and Yulieski Gurriel are also sitting out for the Astros. They have Marwin Gonzalez at shortstop, Colin Moran at third base, Tyler White at second, A.J. Reed at first and Jose Altuve in the designated hitter spot.

Carlos Correa (shoulder) returned to the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

Correa exited Friday's game after re-injuring his shoulder, but it's going to take a lot to keep him out of the Astros lineup at this point of the season. He's hitting in his customary cleanup spot against Jhoulys Chacin and the Angels on Saturday.

Carlos Correa was removed from Friday's game against the Angels after re-injuring his shoulder on a diving attempt defensively.

Correa ranged back and attempted to make a diving grab in the outfield on a bloop double off the bat of Rafael Ortega in the ninth inning. Correa has been battling a shoulder injury for the past several weeks and appeared to aggravate it during the play. The Astros are expected to update his status on Saturday.

Carlos Correa will be in the Astros' starting lineup on Monday night against the Rangers.

Correa has been dealing with a left shoulder injury, but he was lifted early from Sunday's loss to the Cubs merely as a precautionary measure. Houston was down 9-0 at the time of his exit. It's something Correa will apparently be able to play through over the final three weeks, though there are never guarantees with shoulder troubles.
Mon, Sep 12, 2016 02:33:00 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said after Sunday's game that Carlos Correa left early on Sunday as a precautionary measure and will be in the lineup on Monday.

With the Astros trailing by nine runs early in the ballgame, Hinch didn't see a need to push Correa and allowed him to get a bit more rest. The 21-year-old slugger will be back in there for Monday's series opener against the Rangers.

Carlos Correa (shoulder) returned to the Astros starting lineup on Sunday.

Carlos Correa (shoulder) remained out of the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

Carlos Correa (shoulder) remained out of the Astros' lineup Friday.

He hasn't played since Tuesday due to a sprained left shoulder. The hope is that Correa will be ready to go sometime over the weekend. Alex Bregman is again sliding over to shortstop, with Yulieski Gurriel handling third base.
Fri, Sep 9, 2016 04:01:00 PM

Carlos Correa is expected to miss 2-3 days with a sprained left shoulder.

Correa is not with the team for Wednesday's road tilt with the Indians, as he is back in Houston getting his shoulder checked out. Manager A.J. Hinch said that he might be available to play against the Cubs on Friday. This is assuming that his medical checkup does not reveal anything untoward.
