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.

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.
Sep 1 - 4:08 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) went 2-for-5 with two RBI in his fourth minor league rehab game Tuesday with Triple-A Fresno.

Of most importance is that he played the entire game at shortstop. Correa will play another full game at short on Wednesday at Triple-A before taking the day off Thursday and then returning to the Astros' starting lineup on Friday. That seems to be the plan, at least. The 22-year-old shortstop was batting .320/.400/.566 with 20 home runs, 67 RBI, and 64 runs scored in 84 games when he hit the disabled list July 18 with a torn ligament in his left thumb.
Aug 30 - 12:08 AM

Carlos Correa (thumb) will play back-to-back games at shortstop Tuesday and Wednesday at Triple-A Fresno.

Correa could then be activated from the disabled list on Friday, September 1, assuming all goes well over the next few days. He is 2-for-9 with a walk and two RBI through his first three rehab games with Fresno. The star shortstop has been on the disabled list since mid-July because of a torn ligament in his left thumb.
Aug 29 - 4:23 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) had an RBI single and a sacrifice fly among his four plate appearances in his first rehab game Thursday with Triple-A Fresno.

Correa played six innings at shortstop in the contest. He's expected to remain on his rehab assignment for at least a week, so it sounds like the young slugger is poised to be activated on September 1 if all goes well. Correa has been out since mid-July because of a torn ligament in his left thumb.
Aug 25 - 8:42 AM

Carlos Correa (thumb) is on track to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

Correa took on-field batting practice Tuesday without issue and he'll go through a full pregame workout on Wednesday before likely meeting up with the Astros' Double-A team the following day. The young shortstop expects to be ready to return to Houston's active roster after 20-30 at-bats in the minors. He's been on the disabled list since mid-July because of a torn ligament in his left thumb.
Aug 22 - 8:58 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) took on-field batting practice on Tuesday.

Correa could soon be cleared for a rehab assignment and he told reporters before Tuesday's workout that he will probably need 20-30 minor league at-bats before returning to the Astros' active roster. The star shortstop remains on track for activation in early September. He's been out since mid-July with a torn ligament in his left thumb.
Aug 22 - 6:58 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) will take batting practice on the field Tuesday.

Correa took BP off a pitching machine Sunday and "looked great" and "felt great" according to Astros manager A.J. Hinch. Things are progressing well for the shortstop as he works his way back from a torn ligament in his left thumb and it's looking like he has a shot to be activated on September 1.
Aug 20 - 12:49 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) has resumed all baseball activity except hitting.

Now four weeks removed from thumb surgery, Correa has progressed to throwing, running and fielding. He's been hitting flips but is probably still a few days away from live BP. Correa will surely need a minor rehab stint and probably won't be back until early-to-mid September.
Aug 16 - 5:09 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) could progress to taking batting practice this weekend.

Correa took swings off a tee for the first time on Monday, a major step in his recovery from a torn ligament in his left thumb. The initial expectation was that the All-Star shortstop would be out until early-to-mid September, but it appears that he has a chance to beat that timetable if he can avoid setbacks.
Aug 15 - 2:08 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) took 20-25 swings off a tee and fielded about 60 grounders Monday.

It's the biggest step he's taken so far in his rehab from a torn ligament in his left thumb. Correa continues to maintain that he feels ahead of schedule in a projected early- to mid-September timetable, but there are certainly no guarantees that he'll be back any sooner. The Astros aren't going to take any chances.
Aug 14 - 7:12 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) will grip a bat on Monday.

Correa isn't ready to swing yet but gripping a bat will be a step in the right direction. Still healing from a torn thumb ligament he suffered shortly after the All-Star break, the All-Star shortstop isn't expected back until early-to-mid September.
