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.”

Oof, this is going to wreak some havoc on the lineup. We'll see how they cope.
