Astros’ Cor­rea could miss two months

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - BY KRISTIE RIEKEN

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.
