Astros update on Carlos Correa


Below is a response from Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow to inquiries regarding Lancaster (A) shortstop Carlos Correa, who injured his right ankle last night while playing at Lake Elsinore.

"Carlos was examined last night at a local hospital in California," Luhnow said. "He will travel to Houston early this week to be evaluated further by the Astros medical staff before determining next steps. He will be placed on the disabled list and is expected to miss some time."

Correa injured his right ankle while sliding into third base safely on a triple during Lancaster's game on Saturday night at Lake Elsinore. A California League All-Star, Correa is hitting .325 in 62 games for Lancaster with 16 doubles, six triples, six home runs and 57 RBI, the latter ranking 4th in the league.
