Carlos Correa singled in George Springer in the bottom of the 12th to give the Astros a 4-3 win over the Royals on Saturday.
Correa also had a sac fly in the contest. He's hit .290 with four homers and 11 RBI in 16 games this month, and he's very much in the driver's seat for starting at shortstop for the AL in the All-Star Game. Jun 23 - 11:33 PM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in the Astros' 7-4 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Correa opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the top of the first, belted a solo homer in the top of the eighth, and tallied his third RBI of the afternoon on a run-scoring sac fly in the top of the ninth. The 23-year-old shortstop boasts an .855 OPS, 13 home runs, and 47 RBI in 245 at-bats this season for the defending-champion Astros, who have rattled off 11 straight victories -- 10 of them on the road. It's the second-longest winning streak in franchise history.

Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with a homer on Friday in a victory over the Royals.

The homer gives Correa 12 on the season, with this blast being of the solo variety off of Kansas City starter Jake Junis. It also gives Correa 44 RBI on the season over 64 games, and his .858 OPS is right along the lines of the 23-year-old's career mark. It's maybe not the breakout campaign many hoped for, but it's another strong season for one of the best young shortstops in baseball.

Carlos Correa (side) returned to the lineup Tuesday in Oakland and he finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored.

Correa certainly didn't show any signs of the discomfort in his right side when he turned on a second-inning offering from Daniel Mengden. It wasn't a 100 percent successful night, as he was charged with his first error of the season on a booted ball, but the good news was that he made it through the entire game without any setbacks.

Carlos Correa (side) is back in the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Athletics.

Correa will start at shortstop and bat cleanup against A's right-hander Daniel Mengden after missing four games with discomfort in his right side. The 23-year-old has an .811 OPS with 10 home runs and 39 RBI in 60 games this season for the defending World Series champs.
Jun 12 - 7:13 PM

Carlos Correa (side) remained out of the Astros' lineup Sunday.

Correa will miss a fourth straight start following his removal from Wednesday's game with discomfort in his right side. An MRI showed no structural damage, but obviously the Astros don't want to take any chances here. The team is off Monday, so Correa is likely aiming to return to action Tuesday in Oakland. Marwin Gonzalez is at shortstop Sunday and Tony Kemp is in left field.
Jun 10 - 12:02 PM

An MRI taken Thursday showed no structural damage in Carlos Correa's right side.

Correa is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Rangers after leaving Wednesday's game with discomfort in his side, but he should be fine to return to action sometime this weekend -- possibly as early as Friday. Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth Thursday versus Rangers left-hander Cole Hamels.

Carlos Correa (side) is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Thursday against the Rangers.

Correa made an early exit from Wednesday's game after experiencing discomfort in his right side. He's considered day-to-day for now. Marwin Gonzalez will start at shortstop and bat sixth for Houston on Thursday night against Rangers left-hander Cole Hamels.
Jun 7 - 4:55 PM

Carlos Correa left Wednesday's game against the Mariners with discomfort in his right side.

Correa was replaced in the eighth inning by Marwin Gonzalez. Correa reportedly felt soreness in his right side before leaving the game. The Astros will likely want to see how he's feeling the next day before making any sort of decisions, but we should know more about Correa's status on Thursday.
Jun 6 - 11:48 PM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Red Sox on Friday.

The tater came off reliever Joe Kelly in the eighth inning and was a solo shot. The young shortstop has now homered in consecutive games and seems to have officially broken out of his recent slump. For the season he has a .267 batting average with 10 longballs and 39 RBI.
Jun 2 - 12:18 AM

Carlos Correa slugged his ninth home run Thursday in the Astros’ win over Boston.

Correa put Houston ahead by launching a two-run shot off Drew Pomeranz in the first inning. He was hitless in his other three plate appearances, though he did draw an intentional walk in the eighth. This was a needed bounce-back game for Correa, who had been just one for his last 15 entering Thursday’s action.
May 31 - 11:37 PM

Carlos Correa is getting the night off Tuesday.

It's just a routine day of rest for Correa. Alex Bregman is starting at shortstop, Yuli Gurriel is at third base, and J.D. Davis will play first base against the Yankees and left-handed starter CC Sabathia.
May 29 - 4:15 PM

Carlos Correa contributed two hits Wednesday in Houston’s win over the Giants.

Correa singled and scored in the fourth, then drove in a run with an RBI single in the fifth. He was initially credited with a third hit in the eighth inning, though replay showed he was out and the play was eventually overturned. Despite Wednesday’s outburst, Correa has had a difficult month, batting just .188 with 18 strikeouts in 69 May at-bats.
May 23 - 6:30 PM

Carlos Correa hit a two-run home run, his seventh homer of the year, in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

The homer was his second in as many games, and now he's driven in 29 runs on the year. That ranks him among the league leaders in RBI after he drove in a relatively low 84 runs last year. The 23-year-old is having a strong offensive year all around in 2018, batting .292/.374/.521 through 40 games.
May 13 - 7:24 PM

Carlos Correa went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Rangers.

Correa had just a walk to his fair name when he stepped to the plate with a runner on and one out in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Astros held a 3-1 lead at that point, when Correa proceeded to connect for a two-run home run which provided a bit of breathing room for the home team. This season, the star shortstop is hitting a sturdy-if-slightly-down .295/.380/.511 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 39 games played. Saturday's home run was his first since May 3, when he went deep against the Yankees.
