Houston Astros: Carlos Correa out 6-8 weeks with thumb injury


The Mariners are 6-4 in Gaviglio's starts, and he has pitched at least five innings in nine of his 10 starts. Mike Trout recently returned from the exact same procedure, and was ready in just under six weeks, but Rosenthal has heard Correa's absence will be a tad longer. Correa leads all major league shortstops with 20 home runs, 67 RBIs, a.320 batting average and.966 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage). "That's awesome coming out of the break so we've just got to keep it going here and keep ourselves in this race".

As for Gaviglio, his command was decent at times. To take Correa's spot on the active roster, the club has recalled infielder Colin Moran from Triple A Fresno.

"It's a reality in our sport". He is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks.

Ensminger, though, claimed it's another example of careless actions by the staff at Minute Maid, who she said have been unresponsive to past complaints. James Paxton (8-3, 3.19) pitches for Seattle opposite Charlie Morton (7-3, 4.06). As a super utility player, Gonzalez is having an All-Star worthy season. Sliding headfirst has suddenly been deemed a cardinal sin against the game.

Peacock improved to 8-1 and lowered his ERA to 2.40 while pushing his strikeout total to 93.

Correa is Carlos Correa in part because he plays with a relentless passion. Correa suffered the injury while swinging the bat on Monday night. Hughes returned as a reliever earlier this month, making five appearances.

You don't mess with that to make Correa conform to how you think the game should be played.

The Astros opened the day with a 15½-game lead over Seattle.

"Sam has to live at the bottom of the strike zone", manager Scott Servais said. "He's thrown the ball really good out of the bullpen". He was getting buzz as an MVP candidate alongside teammates George Springer and Jose Altuve.
