Correa went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Thursday in an 8-3 win over the Yankees in Game 4 of the ALCS.
While Correa has struggled so far in the postseason, slashing just .167/.167/.389, it's encouraging to see him pop two homers in the last three games after he battled back problems for much of the regular season. If the Astros can wrap up the series in Game 5, it would buy Correa a few additional days to rest his ailing back.
Correa (back) is in the lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS against the Rays on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Correa has been out for nearly two weeks with a tight back, but he's ready to go for the start of the playoffs, batting seventh and playing shortstop. Injuries limited him to just 75 games this season, but he hit quite well when healthy, posting a .279/.358/.568 slash line.
Correa (back) is expected to play in Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
A sore back has kept Correa sidelined since Sept. 21. The shortstop himself expressed optimism over the weekend that he wouldn't have to miss any playoff games, and manager AJ Hinch echoed those sentiments Wednesday.
Correa (back) said a doctor in Los Angeles told him he "should be good to go for the playoffs," Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Correa exuded optimism Saturday, one day after general manager Jeff Luhnow acknowledged the shortstop will have a lot to do over the next week to be ready for the postseason. Correa said he woke up Saturday feeling like he'd be in the lineup if the playoffs started Sunday. "I feel really good. I woke up feeling great," Correa said. "Today we did more stuff in the gym and, like I said, it's a positive step moving forward and we're going to ramp it up once we get to Houston." The Astros will wrap their regular season against the Angels on Sunday then return to Houston to prepare for the ALDS, which begins Friday.
Correa (back) will participate in workouts over the next week to determine his availability for the American League Division Series, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Correa is still with the team in Los Angeles but was not spotted at Angel Stadium prior to Friday's game. "We're going to have to see him do a lot of stuff between now and next Friday," Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "He's going to have to ramp up his activity each day and give us comfort that he's ready to play. If he's not ready to play, he (could) be on the roster and not play. But, most likely, we'd have to use that roster spot for someone else." That Correa's not performing baseball activities at this time is concerning. The Astros will return to Houston on Monday and will have two scheduled workouts Wednesday and Thursday before the ALDS opens Friday, Oct. 4.
Correa (back) has been shut down for the rest of the regular season but is expected to start Game 1 of the ALDS, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Astros will keep the 25-year-old out of action until the postseason to ensure he's 100 percent. Aledmys Diaz and Jack Mayfield figure to see time at shortstop in the final four regular-season contests.
Correa (back) isn't in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
As expected, Correa will take a seat for the third straight day due to back tightness. The Astros are likely exercising caution with their starting shortstop, and he should be able to return to the starting lineup sometime over the weekend before the postseason begins.
Correa (back) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game at Seattle, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Correa missed Tuesday's contest due to back tightness but said after the game he expected to rejoin the lineup Wednesday, though he apparently isn't quite ready to roll. According to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, the 25-year-old will sit again Thursday versus the Angels, though he said he would be OK to play were it the playoffs.
Correa (back) said he expects to rejoin the Houston lineup for Wednesday's series finale against the Mariners, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Correa was scratched ahead of Tuesday's 3-0 win after experiencing back tightness following the team flight to Seattle. The Astros' decision to hold him out was mostly for precautionary purposes, but Correa looks like he'll still be on track for steady work over the final five regular-season contests while Houston remains locked in a tight battle with the Yankees for home-field advantage in the American League postseason.
Correa was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Mariners with a sore back, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Correa apparently came to manager AJ Hinch and let him know that his back was a little tight, while Hinch said Correa probably could have played (he took normal batting practice) if the Astros needed to win this game. Aledmys Diaz will enter the lineup at third base and Alex Bregman will slide over to shortstop.
Correa is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday against the Angels.
It's been the team's plan to limit Correa's playing time since his return from a back injury. He was replaced in the sixth inning in Saturday's contest and will now remain out Sunday. Aledmys Diaz will enter the lineup and play third base while batting seventh as a result of Correa's absence.
Correa's exit in the sixth inning Saturday against the Angels was part of the plan to limit his playing time to close the regular season, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
After the game, manager A.J. Hinch said that the team planned to play Correa only six or seven innings due to his lack of a rehab assignment. Even with a limited workload, Correa has been productive, collecting three hits and scoring three runs in his three games since being activated from the injured list.
Correa went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 6-4 win over the Angels.
Correa had his first hits since being activated off the injured list. Swatting a couple of homers suggests the back injury that sidelined him for a month is not a major concern. The Astros are expected to limit his playing time initially, but assuming he comes out of Friday's game without issue, Correa's scheduled to start Saturday, per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle.
Correa will sit as expected Wednesday against the Rangers.
Correa isn't expected to play every day right away after returning from a nearly month-long absence with a back injury. He went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Tuesday and will rest Wednesday, with Alex Bregman sliding to shortstop and Aledmys Diaz starting at third base.
Correa, who returned from the 10-day injured list to start at shortstop in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Rangers, won't play Wednesday in the series finale, David Barron of the Houston Chronicle reports.
As was suggested over the weekend, the Astros are ramping up Correa slowly upon his return. After playing a full nine innings Tuesday and going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts, Correa will sit out Wednesday and then return to play Friday against the Angels after an off day. Manager AJ Hinch suggested Correa would play in only two of the Astros' three games over the weekend.
Correa (back) will start at shortstop and bat seventh Tuesday against the Rangers, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
Correa completed a short rehab stint with Triple-A Round Rock, and he's since been cleared to return from the 10-day injured list. He's been sidelined since Aug. 20 due to a back issue. Houston will have the luxury of easing Correa back into action with the playoffs still a few weeks away.
Correa (back) went 1-for-2 with two walks in Triple-A Round Rock's season-ending loss to Sacramento on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
With no more minor-league games left, Correa's return is imminent. The shortstop will remain with Round Rock through the weekend and partake in a live batting-practice session Sunday before rejoining the Astros on their off day Monday. "If all goes well, we'll continue his rehab in the big leagues during this homestand," manager AJ Hinch said. The Astros host the Rangers for two games beginning Tuesday followed by a three-game set against the Angels that begins Friday. Correa could ramp up slowly, playing less than a full game in the first few outings for which he's activated.
Correa (back) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
Correa will stick with the Express during their playoff run; if the team gets eliminated, the shortstop will continue rehabbing with High-A Fayetteville or play in simulated games to get back up to speed. His return date remains up in the air.
Correa (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Correa is expected to get a chance to take the field for Game 3 of Round Rock's playoff series, assuming all goes well over the next few days. His return date is still up in the air.
Correa (back) could make a rehab appearance for Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Correa has missed just shy of three weeks with a sore back. The Astros are likely primarily concerned with getting him right for the playoffs, but it looks as though he'll be able to return for at least a handful of games prior to the end of the regular season.
