Seattle Mariners vs Houston Astros
HOUSTON -- Astros shortstop Carlos Correa looked the part of someone poised to contribute, and given his extended absence, his presence was a welcome sight in the home clubhouse.
Correa is scheduled to be reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Friday, ending a 36-game hiatus caused by lower back soreness. Correa landed on the DL on June 26 and has endured a methodical rehabilitation process, one that culminated with a five-game rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi that included Correa going 3-for-16 with a home run for the Hooks.
The Astros (73-43) were 21-15 with Correa on the DL following their 8-6 loss to Seattle on Thursday. Correa was slashing .268/.352/.480 with 13 home runs and 49 RBIs before the injury ended a legit bid at a second consecutive All-Star selection. The Astros are 46-27 with Correa in the lineup.Read More...
