Astros' Correa out 6-8 weeks

Astros' Correa out 6-8 weeks

While Correa's injury poses a problem for the Astros, they are well suited to replace him. "Obviously, we're a little short in the bullpen right now, but that's what I'm trying to do every time".

The injury occurred on a swing and miss during the 4th inning of last night's game.

Correa will miss six to eight weeks after an MRI revealed a torn ligament in his thumb.

"We'll move some guys around", Astros Manager A.J. Hinch said. The fact that Correa could go 4 for 5 with two home runs in a game in Toronto in-between with the thumb still hurting says plenty about just how talented he truly is. Gamel's first homer since June 23 came next to put Seattle up 2-1. He's always been a good hitter and he is doing that again, hitting.308, but he's hitting for more power than ever before. Edwin Diaz pitched a scoreless ninth for his 18th save.

Follow our live coverage, analysis and commentary above as the Mariners (43-47) face the Astros (62-30) in the opening game of the three-game series at Minute Made Park in Houston. In his career, Paxton is 2-2 with a 3.16 ERA and 36 strikeouts against Houston. He went to third on Danny Valencia's ground out and scored on Dyson's infield single. So far in 2017, the Astros have used Gonzalez all over the field, as a utility man. He finally settles into a full-time position while Correa recovers. He was just starting to become a household name, too.

Correa leads all MLB shortstops in home runs, RBI and OPS.

The last of those plays was a backhanded stop of an Alex Bregman grounder that led to a force at second that got Brian McCann with the bases full.

He will have surgery and is not expected to be back in uniform for 6-8 weeks.

Carlos Correa is down, the Houston Astros suddenly don't look like as tough of an out and the Internet wants to assign blame.

Trout had the UCL in his thumb repaired, going on the DL on May 29th, and then he returned on July 14th.

The Astros also called up minor leaguer Colin Moran from the Triple-A Fresno Grizzlies on Tuesday. Adding Martinez gives them a big bat to help in the final two and a half months of the season.

Here is hoping that Correa will recover in time because he is part of the Astros big three offensive stars.
