Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, who was placed on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday, will be sidelined four to six weeks because of a fractured rib that occurred during a massage.
“I’m extremely disappointed about not being on the field with my teammates,” Correa said in a statement. “I sustained the rib fracture during a massage at my home on Tuesday. To sustain an injury in such an unusual way makes it even more frustrating.”
Correa - Second - League - Shortstops - Percentage
Correa, 24, ranked second among major league shortstops in on-base-plus-slugging percentage (.907), home runs (11) and slugging percentage (.547) and was tied for second in RBIs (35) entering Wednesday’s games.
Correa, who has not played since Houston’s 4-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday, has committed just two errors in 173 total chances this season.
