Carlos Correa is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Tigers.

Correa is 0-for-8 with three strikeouts over his last two games. Marwin Gonzalez will play shortstop and bat fifth Tuesday versus Detroit right-hander Jordan Zimmermann. Evan Gattis is also on the bench Tuesday for Houston.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Correa's absence makes the Astros a slightly less appealing team target, but they still hold plenty of upside against Jordan Zimmermann. The right-hander hasn't had success against hitters from either side of the plate - he's allowing a .396 wOBA to LHs and a .389 mark to RHs, with a HR/9 rate over 2.00 against hitters from both sides. His GB% sits under 30% and he's been getting absolutely crushed by lefties to start the year with an absurdly high 39.4 Hd-Sft% (20.0 Hd-Sft% vs. RHs). Add in the fact that Zimmermann simply can't miss bats (14.0 K%) and you have a very nice recipe for under-owned upside with the Astros.

Carlos Correa socked a solo homer and drew a walk in Friday’s loss to the Indians.

Correa’s red-hot May continues. He’s now batting .383 (23-for-60) with four home runs, 16 RBI, and 17 runs scored through 16 games this month. The 22-year-old has yet to steal a base this season, but he has still been one of the most valuable fantasy shortstops so far this season.
May 19 - 11:49 PM

Carlos Correa is absent from the Astros' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Marlins.

Marwin Gonzalez will handle shortstop and bat sixth versus Miami right-hander Jose Urena. It's just some routine rest for Correa, who went 2-for-4 an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday night's rout of the Fish.
May 17 - 9:38 AM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored against the Yankees on Friday.

Correa was very quiet in April, but he’s been red-hot so far this month. He’s batting .395 (17-for-43) with three home runs, 12 RBI, and 10 runs scored through 11 games to begin May. We hope you were patient with him in fantasy leagues.
May 12 - 10:25 PM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

Correa went to the opposite field with a Michael Pineda offering in the first inning for the two-run shot, his fifth of the year. It was Correa's third straight game in which he's driven in multiple runs, giving him 19 RBI in 32 games. After a rough April, the 22-year-old has used a strong start to May to raise his overall line to .282/.357/.484.
May 11 - 10:49 PM

Carlos Correa finished 2-for-3 with two RBI in the Astros' defeat of the Braves on Wednesday.

Correa's two-run double in the bottom of the fifth inning gave Houston the lead for good. He also drew a walk in the bottom of the fourth and hit a two-out double in the bottom of the seventh, boosting his season slash line to .273/.346/.455. The young shortstop is putting together a massive May.
May 10 - 5:29 PM

Carlos Correa went 4-for-5 with a homer and a double as the Astros crushed the Rangers 10-1 on Wednesday.

Correa is up to a more respectable .255/.327/.408 after a disappointing April. He should put up some big RBI numbers hitting behind Jose Altuve as he continues to heat up.
May 4 - 12:18 AM

Carlos Correa doubled in two during a five-run eighth as the Astros beat the Rangers 6-2 on Monday.

That gives him 10 RBI from the cleanup spot this year. Correa's bad April saw him hit .233/.309/.349 with nearly three strikeouts for every walk and rather shaky defense at shortstop. He'll surely pick it up offensively, but some real progress would be nice; he's a worse player at age 22 than he was at 20.
May 1 - 11:38 PM

Carlos Correa finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored Sunday in the Astros' defeat of the A's.

Correa drove in George Springer with an RBI double in the bottom of the first before singling and scoring on a Marwin Gonzalez three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth. The star shortstop is beginning to produce at a more reliable rate after a short mid-April slump. He's slashing .233/.309/.349 overall on the year.
Apr 30 - 5:37 PM

Carlos Correa (hand) is back in the Astros' starting lineup Thursday versus the Angels.

Correa took a pitch off his right hand Saturday, but X-ray and MRI results all turned up negative and he's mostly over the swelling by now. Correa will start at shortstop and bat cleanup Thursday against Anaheim right-hander Matt Shoemaker. He missed three games.
Apr 20 - 11:13 AM

Carlos Correa (hand) underwent an MRI on Tuesday which came back negative.

Correa said that the MRI's purpose was mainly to offer him reassurance on the health front. He had already undergone X-rays, which also came back negative. The star shortstop said that he will be available to pinch hit against the Angels on Wednesday and hopes to play on Thursday. He has not seen the field since being hit in the right hand by a pitch on Saturday.
Apr 19 - 5:44 PM

Carlos Correa (hand) said that he plans on playing in Thursday's game against the Angels.

Correa is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday -- Alex Bregman is hitting sixth and manning shortstop in his place -- but indicated that he will be available to pinch-hit if need be. He has not played since being plunked in the right hand by a pitch on Saturday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: While the Astros will be without Correa, they still set up as one of the top offensive stacks of the night. RH J.C. Ramirez will take the ball for the Halos, and his career .352 wOBA allowed to RH bats mixed with a 2.06 HR/9 rate (0.87 against LH bats) bodes very well for the Astros RH power bats. Springer, Altuve, Gattis and Bregman are all viable targets in any format.
Apr 19 - 4:37 PM

Carlos Correa (hand) is out of the Giants' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Angels.

Correa hasn't played since taking a pitch off his right hand Saturday. X-rays turned up negative, but the star shortstop is apparently still working through some discomfort. Alex Bregman will start at short and bat sixth Tuesday night against Ricky Nolasco.
Apr 18 - 4:13 PM

Carlos Correa (hand) is not in the Astros' lineup Monday.

Correa left Saturday's game after being hit in the right hand by a pitch and was slated to sit out Sunday before that contest was rained out. He had said there was a "99 percent chance" he'd play Monday, but he still had some discomfort while swinging the bat pregame. Alex Bregman has shifted over to shortstop, while Marwin Gonzalez will cover third base. Brian McCann is also sitting out Monday, as Evan Gattis is making a second straight start at catcher.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Correa out, Josh Reddick (132 wRC+, .174 ISO vs RHP since 2015) moves up to the 2nd spot and Carlos Beltran (117 wRC+, .196 ISO) hits cleanup. Reddick hasn't really gotten on track yet this season, but is affordable and has hit the ball hard in 42.9% of his BBE (Batted Ball Events) over the last week. Chavez has been better against RHBs (.291 wOBA), but Jose Altuve hits same handed pitching well and has begun heating up.
