Correa went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, two runs scored and an RBI on Wednesday against the Athletics. Correa returned from the injured list after recovering from a finger injury that cost him nearly two weeks. He singled and scored his first time at the plate and followed that up with an RBI double in the fourth frame. Correa has lacked power early on in the campaign, though the recent uptick in offense around the league bodes well for his potential to experience improved results.
The Twins reinstated Correa (finger) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Correa sustained a finger injury May 5, and although he avoided a fracture, he still sat out nearly two weeks. The 27-year-old will serve as Minnesota's clear top shortstop now that he's healthy, while Royce Lewis will head to the minors to get more consistent playing time at positions other than shortstop. Prior to his absence, Correa hit .255/.320/.372 with two homers, five doubles, 12 runs and 11 RBI over 24 games.
Correa (finger) will be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's series finale in Oakland, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Manager Rocco Baldelli said after Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Athletics that Royce Lewis would be sent back to Triple-A St. Paul, clearing a spot on the 26-man active roster for Correa, who hasn't played since May 5 due to the right middle finger bone bruise. Though Lewis performed as arguably the Twins' top hitter during his 11-game run as the everyday shortstop, Minnesota won't be too disappointed to usher Correa back into the lineup. Prior to suffering the injury, Correa was hitting .255 with two home runs across 103 plate appearances in his first season in Minnesota.
Correa (finger) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics and remains on the 10-day injured list. Previous reports indicated that Correa would return from the injured list to play Tuesday, but if that happens, it would be in a bench role, which seems unlikely. The Twins do still believe he could return this series, per MLB.com, which would make Wednesday his new expected return date, as the team has an off day Thursday before traveling to Kansas City on Friday. Royce Lewis will get at least one more start at shortstop as a result.
The Twins plan to activate Correa (finger) from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game in Oakland, Damin Esper of MLB.com reports. Minnesota already opened up one spot on the 26-man active roster by designating reliever Jharel Cotton for assignment after Monday's 3-1 win in the series opener, but the Twins will have to make an additional move to clear room for Correa and starting pitcher Dylan Bundy (illness), who is scheduled to come off the COVID-19 IL to take the hill Tuesday. The Twins could open up another spot by optioning top prospect Royce Lewis to Triple-A St. Paul, even though the rookie posted a solid .763 OPS over 10 games while stepping in as the primary shortstop during Correa's absence. Even if Minnesota elects to keep Lewis around in a utility role, Correa should immediately step back into an everyday role at shortstop now that his bruised right middle finger is no longer causing him complications in the field or when he swings a bat.
