Correa went 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in Wednesday's 9-1 win over the Angels. Lost amid the five home runs Houston pummeled was Correa's three-single performance, which could ignite the slumping shortstop. He entered the game fighting a 2-for-35 stretch over the first nine games of May.
Correa went 1-for-5 with a run scored in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Angels. Correa was back in the lineup following a day off Sunday, which was designed to give him a break amid a slump to start the month of May. After Monday's effort, which saw him leave three runners in scoring position, Correa is 2-for-32 this month with nine strikeouts and one walk. He's second on the team with average exit velocity of 91 mph, so there's some element of bad luck, but Correa's average launch angle has increased to 15.5. That's translated into fewer line drives and more fly balls.
Correa is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Manager Dusty Baker will extend Correa a day off while he's stuck in a 1-for-27 slump at the plate that has dropped his season average to .246. Robel Garcia steps in at shortstop for Correa in the series finale.
Correa went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 10-4 win over Toronto. Correa's second-inning blast snapped an 0-for-19 skid and plated Yuli Gurriel in front of him. It was his fifth home run of the season, and Correa now has 16 RBI over 31 games.
Correa went 0-for-4 in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Yankees. Correa's hit a rocky patch since delivering a four-hit performance April 30. Since then, the shortstop is hitless over 19 at-bats with six strikeouts, lowering his batting average to .254. He's in no danger of losing his starting gig, but manager Dusty Baker could give him a rest day as a way to get Aledmys Diaz (5-for-9, five RBI over his last three games) into the lineup.
