Astros’ Correa could miss two months
All-star shortstop Carlos Correa of the AL West-leading Houston Astros is expected to miss six to eight weeks because of a torn ligament in his left thumb.
The Astros put Correa on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, a day after he hurt himself taking a swing against Seattle. They expect to have him back in the lineup for the stretch run in September.
“It’s obviously disappointing, but at the same time I have to focus on what I can control and that’s hopefully having successful surgery and finishing my rehab and hopefully coming back late September or so and being able to play in the playoffs,” Correa said.
He is batting .320 with 18 doubles and 20 home runs, and has 67 RBIs.
