Correa went 2-for-3 with a walk, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 6-5 win over Texas.
Correa knocked an opposite-field blast to cap a four-run first inning and is coming back from a slump that began when the calendar flipped to May. The slugging shortstop is 6-for-13 with two RBI, seven runs scored and reached base safely 11 times over the last four games. He and Kyle Tucker, who bats seventh behind Correa, have authored turnarounds this month, making the order deeper.
Correa went 1-for-2 with three walks and three runs scored in Friday's 10-4 win over Texas.
For the second time in the last three games, Correa reached base safely four times. That time on the basepaths enabled him to score five runs, giving him 23 in 37 games. The shortstop appears to be seeing the ball better after stumbling to begin the month of May. Over his last four games, Correa has reached base nine times (five walks) in 18 plate appearances.
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.
Correa went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's 9-2 win over the Rays.
He tied Michael Brantley for the team lead in hits on a night when the Astros banged out 15 knocks in total. Correa finishes up an impressive April hitting .303 with four homers, 13 RBI and 16 runs through 25 games.
Correa is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Aledmys Diaz will pick up a start at shortstop while Correa sits for the first time in 2021. Unless he makes an appearance off the bench Sunday, Correa will look to extend his three-game RBI streak in Monday's series opener against the Mariners.
Correa went 3-for-6 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 16-2 rout of the Angels.
He set the tone for the afternoon by leading off the bottom of the first inning with a blast off Griffin Canning. Correa has had a fast start to the season, slashing .284/.330/.481 through 20 games with four homers, 11 RBI and 13 runs.
Correa went 2-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored in Thursday's 8-2 win over the Angels.
The shortstop's first opportunity in the leadoff spot this season proved successful, and he's now hitting .282 with three homers and nine RBI through 71 at-bats in 2021. Correa has failed to record a hit in just three of his 18 starts, providing consistency to Houston's lineup. The 26-year-old will likely return to the middle of the order once Jose Altuve (COVID-19) returns, but figures to continue hitting regardless of his spot in the lineup.
Correa will start at shortstop and lead off Thursday against the Angels, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Correa will be the fourth different Astros player to get a look out of the leadoff role since the team's regular table setter, Jose Altuve (illness), was placed on the COVID-19 injured list April 14. Per Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle, manager Dusty Baker said that Altuve could be back from the IL this weekend or early next week, so Correa's stay atop the lineup will likely be brief. Through his first 72 plate appearances of the season, Correa is slashing .273/.333/.470 with three home runs and seven RBI.
Correa went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-2 loss to Detroit.
Correa's ninth-inning homer was a mild salve on a disappointing offensive performance for the Astros. The blast extended Correa's hitting streak to eight games, during which he's slashed .375/.412/.750 with six extra-base hits and six RBI.
Correa went 2-for-3 with a double, a solo homer, a walk and two RBI during Thursday's victory over the Athletics.
He smashed a solo shot in the second inning off Cole Irvin, then knocked in teammate Yordan Alvarez with a two-bagger in the fourth. The 26-year-old is coming off a rough 2020 season, but he's off to a good start this year, having racked up five extra-base hits already.
Correa went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk during Tuesday's win over the Angels.
Correa gave the Astros the lead for good with a two-run homer off Raisel Iglesias in the ninth inning. He also walked in the fourth. The long ball was the first of the year for the 26-year-old, who is batting .280 overall.
Correa batted sixth and went 1-for-4 in Sunday's 9-2 win over the Athletics.
Correa opened the season as the fifth-place hitter but was dropped to sixth Sunday. That seems to run counter to expectations, as Houston was without two-hole hitter Michael Brantley (wrist). Instead, both Yordan Alvarez and Yuli Gurriel jumped above Correa.
Correa batted leadoff and went 3-for-3 with two RBI in Wednesday's spring game against the Marlins.
Houston manager Dusty Baker declared Correa as a candidate to lead off along with center fielder Myles Straw. Wednesday's start was the third time this spring that Correa has hit leadoff and the first success he's had in that role. The Astros are looking to replace George Springer atop the batting order, and Correa brings a similar offensive style to Springer, while Straw offers a speed element.
Manager Dusty Baker said Wednesday that Correa and Myles Straw are the "leading candidates" to bat leadoff Opening Day for the Astros, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
George Springer was the longtime leadoff man for Houston, but now that he's moved onto Toronto, Baker is in search of his new man atop the order. Correa has never batted leadoff in his major-league career, primarily hitting third or fourth. The 26-year-old struggled in 2020 with a .264/.326/.383 slash line, five homers and 25 RBI in 58 games, but he had an .845 OPS across the previous five seasons. Correa is the safer option between the two candidates since Straw has only 224 big-league plate appearances to his name, though the latter certainly provides more upside on the basepaths.
Correa agreed to a one-year, $11.7 million contract with the Astros on Saturday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Correa was slated to go to arbitration during the offseason, but he was able to reach an agreement with Houston ahead of the case. The 26-year-old posted a .709 OPS with five home runs and 25 RBI over 58 games during the abbreviated 2020 season and will serve as the Astros' starting shortstop once again in 2021.
Correa went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Game 6 of the ALCS.
Correa didn't repeat his heroics of Game 5, but he still managed to rack up hits. He has now reached base in five of six games in the ALCS and 11 of 12 contests across the entirety of the postseason. That's resulted in a .372/.471/.814 line in 51 plate appearances, as he looks to help power the Astros to another World Series appearance.
