Carlos Correa Newsbeat

Astros shortstop Carlos Correa says broken rib was caused by in-home massage

News broke earlier Wednesday that Astros star shortstop Carlos Correa is due to miss four-to-six weeks with a broken rib. All we knew at the time was that Correa wasn’t with his team at the ballpark and that his manager didn’t say how the injury happened. That remains the case leading up to Wednesday’s game:

Correa, though, has issued a statement. And, well, hold onto your hats:

“I’m extremely disappointed about not being on the field with my teammates. I sustained the rib fracture during a massage at my home on Tuesday. To sustain an injury in such an unusual way makes it even more frustrating. However, I will work hard to get back on the field as quickly as possible to help our team achieve our goal of winning another championship.”

There’s further mention that Correa isn’t at the ballpark due to being instructed to limit his movement which, with a broken rib, makes sense.

Is that what we’re calling it?

MLB Rumors: Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor on Red Sox’s long-term radar?

Alex Cora already brought the Red Sox a World Series title. Could he bring two marquee players to Boston next?

During an appearance Saturday on “MLB on FOX,” The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal suggested Cora’s presence in Boston may give the Red Sox the “inside track” on the Houston Astros’ Carlos Correa and the Cleveland Indians’ Francisco Lindor when both shortstops become free agents after the 2021 season.

“The Sox, in theory, could have the inside track on both players,” Rosenthal says. “Their manager, Alex Cora, is from Puerto Rico, as are both players, and he was their GM in the 2017 World Baseball Classic.”

Mind you, those who remember the Hanley Ramirez/Pablo Sandoval debacle see ways this could backfire severely….

Astros SS Correa (neck) sidelined for opener

Houston Astros All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa is out of the lineup for Opening Day on Thursday as he grapples with a neck strain.

He took early batting practice before the Astros’ game with the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field but declared himself a no-go. He told reporters he hopes to play at some point in the opening series.

Correa, 24, suffered the injury in a spring training game on Friday.

“I’m getting better, slowly better,” he said. “It’s day-to-day type of thing. I’m trying to feel great to where I can just swing and let it go. It happened — and obviously, bad timing — in one of the last games in Spring Training against the Mets. I went to tag (Michael) Conforto and tripped with him and fell on my shoulder. Thank God, (the injury) was not my shoulder; it was just my neck. I just recovered slowly.”

Astros’ Carlos Correa, Rays’ Tommy Pham win arbitration cases

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.—Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa and Tampa Bay outfielder Tommy Pham have won their salary arbitration cases.

The decisions Tuesday gave players a 3-1 lead over teams in cases this winter.

Correa was awarded a $5 million salary, rather than the $4.25 million offered by the Astros. Arbitrators Elizabeth Neumeier, James Oldham and Gary Kendellen made the decision.

Today’s news in arbitration.
