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.
