Player Outlook
Carlos Correa's second season with the Twins was a disappointment as he hit just .230 with a .711 OPS. He played most of the season with plantar fasciitis in his left foot which may have limited him at the plate. It hurt his speed and was a factor in his leading the league in grounding into double plays (30). His main struggles were against fastballs, where he was below average (-5 Run Value per Baseball Savant) for the first time in his career, so his decline may not have all been due to health. However, his power metrics were still above average (71st percentile in Avg. Exit Velocity and 75th in Hard-Hit Rate). Correa was still a plus defender despite the foot issues in part due to his riffle arm as he was a finalist for the AL Gold Glove. He also thrived in the postseason again, hitting .409 with three doubles in six games. His return to postseason form happened after his only IL stint for his foot issues, giving hope that the rest caused him to be renewed at the plate and a similar pattern can happen for 2024. He's set at the Twins shortstop for the foreseeable future thanks to a six-year, $200 million contract. While there are long-term concerns about his ankle (a plate inserted in his ankle from a 2014 injury scared of teams signing him last winter), a return to health could lead to a bounceback season.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Getting breather Thursday

    Correa is out of the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Mariners. Correa is getting a routine day off after he had started in all nine games for the Twins since he returned from the injured list April 29. Willi Castro will step in at shortstop in place of Correa, who popped a solo home run -- his second of the season -- in Wednesday's 6-3 win.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Comes off IL

    The Twins reinstated Correa (intercostal) from the 10-day injured list Monday. Correa ended up spending about two and a half weeks on the IL after being deactivated April 13 with a right intercostal strain. Though he wasn't sent out on a minor-league rehab assignment prior to being activated, Correa should immediately take back an everyday role at shortstop as he rejoins the active roster ahead of Monday's series opener versus the White Sox. Outfielder Austin Martin was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding move.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Slated to return Monday

    The Twins will activate Correa (oblique) from the 10-day injured list prior to Monday's game versus the White Sox, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Correa will skip a rehab assignment and go ahead and rejoin the major-league roster instead following a two-plus-week absence with a right intercostal strain. Willi Castro has been operating as the Twins' everyday shortstop since Correa went down with the injury but will now re-enter the mix for starts at third base and also the outfield.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Could return soon

    Correa (oblique) said Wednesday he could return during the Twins' upcoming road trip, which begins Friday against the Angels and runs through next Wednesday against the White Sox, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Correa did some glove work and took swings Wednesday as he ramps up his baseball activities, and there's a chance he returns from the injured list without a minor-league rehab assignment. The star shortstop's progress over the next few days should provide a better indication of whether a rehab stint will be necessary.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Set to begin baseball activities

    Correa (right intercostal strain) is scheduled to begin baseball activities next week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "His symptoms are improving dramatically from where we were," said Twins head trainer Nick Paparesta. Correa was placed on the injured list April 13 with the intercostal strain and it was described as mild. There isn't a timetable for his return, but it's a good sign he's making progress. With Correa out, Willi Castro has been the primary shortstop for the Twins.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Placed on injured list

    The Twins placed Correa on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right oblique strain. Correa suffered the injury during an at-bat in the third inning of Friday's loss, and it will officially cost him at least 10 days. The team is still awaiting the results of his MRI and will establish a timeline once they come back. Willi Castro will take over as Minnesota's primary shortstop while Correa recovers, opening the door for Kyle Farmer and Jose Miranda to see more action at the hot corner.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: IL stint likely

    Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said Friday that he expects Correa (side) to land on the injured list, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Correa had to exit Friday's loss to the Tigers early after suffering a right oblique strain during his at-bat in the third inning. The Twins will likely hold off making any decisions until the infielder's MRI results come back, but Baldelli's words suggest Correa's odds of avoiding the IL are slim. Willi Castro entered Friday's game as his replacement at shortstop and will likely remain there while Correa is out, opening up third base for Kyle Farmer or Jose Miranda.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Exits with injury

    Correa was removed from Friday's game against the Tigers due to a right oblique strain, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Correa was grabbing at his right side after striking out in the top of the third inning and was replaced at shortstop by Willi Castro as the Twins took the field in the bottom half of the frame. The severity of the 29-year-old's injury remains unclear, but Kyle Farmer may see increased reps at shortstop should Correa's oblique force him onto the injured list.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Three hits Thursday

    Correa went 3-for-4 with a double in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Cleveland. Correa had gone just 1-for-11 in his previous four games after racking up three hits Opening Day.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Three hits in Opening Day win

    Correa went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a walk in Thursday's Opening Day win at Kansas City. Correa played through plantar fasciitis in his left foot for most of last season but was pain-free in spring training. After one game it looks like full health could result in a bounce-back season. Correa slashed just .230/.312/.399 with 18 home runs and 65 RBI in 580 plate appearances last season.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Strong start to spring

    Correa went 2-for-3 in Sunday's spring training tie with Tampa Bay. He's hitting .429 (3-for-7) through three spring games. Correa played through plantar fasciitis in his left foot for most of last season but said he was pain-free as spring training began, and he's looked sharp in the field. Correa slashed just .230/.312/.399 with 18 home runs and 65 RBI in 580 plate appearances last season while battling through a nagging foot issue starting in mid-May, so he could bounce back simply by avoiding re-injury.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Big strides with foot injury

    Correa said over the weekend at the TwinsFest fan event that he "started turning the curve" with the recovery from his left foot injury in mid- to late-December, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Correa played through plantar fasciitis in his foot for the bulk of the 2023 season and didn't do any running or sprinting early on in the offseason. He admitted that the recovery "took longer than expected," but he's running, sprinting and hitting without issue now and has declared himself ready to go for spring training. Correa slashed just .230/.312/.399 with 18 home runs and 65 RBIs in 580 plate appearances last season while battling through the nagging foot issue starting in mid-May. Plantar fasciitis is an injury that can flare up again, which is worrisome, but Correa should be in line for a bounce-back 2024 campaign if he can stay healthy.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Tallies three hits in win

    Correa went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI and one walk in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Astros in Game 2 of the ALDS. The star shortstop was an RBI machine in this contest, accounting for half of his team's runs to help tie the series. Correa was preparing himself for a postseason mentality at the end of the regular season, finishing the year with an .840 OPS across 15 games in September, his best mark of any month. That success has translated into October, as he now is slashing .533/.588/.733 across four games this postseason and has also contributed four RBI.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: In lineup for Game 1

    Correa (hand) is in Minnesota's lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS against the Astros, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Correa didn't seem to be too concerned after getting hit in the hand by a pitch toward the end of Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series, and he's officially good to go Saturday. Correa went 3-for-7 with an RBI during the wild-card round and will look to maintain his momentum heading into a series against his former team.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: X-rays on hand negative

    X-rays on Correa's right hand came back negative after he was hit by a pitch during Wednesday's game against Toronto, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Correa was able to remain the game after taking a 99-mph Jordan Romano fastball off his hand in the eighth inning. Correa said after the game that he's "good to go," so it seems likely he'll be able to suit up for Minnesota's AL Divisional Series matchup against Houston.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Won't return this weekend

    Correa (foot) will not rejoin the Twins before the end of the regular season, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The original plan had been for Correa to travel with the Twins to Colorado for their final series of the regular season. However, the decision has been made for him to stay back and participate in simulated games instead. It is not being viewed as a setback, as Correa still appears in line to play in Game 1 of the Wild Card round next week. The veteran shortstop has been plagued by plantar fasciitis and will finish the 2023 season having slashed a disappointing .230/.312/.399 with 18 home runs over 135 games.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Expected back for Coors series

    Correa (plantar fasciitis) is expected to return from the injured list when first eligible Sept. 29 in Coors Field, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. An MRI taken of Correa's left foot showed a full thickness tear of the central cortex of his plantar fascia, per Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. That sounds scary but is actually a good thing, as the hope is that it will alleviate the discomfort he's been feeling and he can make it back after a minimum stay on the IL. Royce Lewis (hamstring) could also end up on the shelf after a scheduled MRI this weekend, so Kyle Farmer will play roughly every day and Willi Castro will be used more in the infield.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: To 10-day IL

    Correa (plantar fasciitis) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Correa has dealt with lingering plantar fasciitis for much of the season, but he aggravated the issue Monday and went for an MRI on Tuesday. He will be eligible to return Sept. 29 in Coors Field. Kyle Farmer should assume a prominent role and Trevor Larnach was recalled from Triple-A to allow Willi Castro to spend more time in the infield with Royce Lewis (hamstring) also ailing.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Still out Wednesday

    Correa (plantar fasciitis) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Reds. Correa underwent an MRI on Tuesday after his plantar fasciitis flared up Monday and the team has not released the results. Kyle Farmer is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth. The Twins have an off day Thursday before a weekend homestand against the Angels.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Awaiting MRI results

    Correa, who is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Reds, underwent an MRI on his left foot earlier in the day, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.comreports. The 28-year-old has played through plantar fasciitis in his left foot throughout the season, and the issue flared up during Monday's loss to Cincinnati. Bench coach Jayce Tingler said the team is approaching the injury as a day-to-day concern and noted that Correa has typically been able to return to action relatively quickly this season after aggravating the issue.
