Carlos Correa diagnosed with a wounded finger, he may avoid the list of injured

3:57 pm: In excellent news for the Twins, Chief of Baseball Operations Derek Falvey revealed to reporters (including Dan Hayes from Athletic) that the CT scan revealed no fracture in Correa’s hand. He was diagnosed with a bruise and is daily. Valve suggested that Correa might avoid even the infected list altogether (via Do Hyung Park from, although it deals with persistent soreness and inflammation.

The team is still promoting the previous first general selection Royce Lewis In his first league appearance, Valvey said (via Betsy Helfand from St. Paul Pioneer Press). Minnesota was planning to promote Lewis in anticipation of Elle’s mission to Korea. They will continue the call even though Korea remains on the active list for the time being.

8:47 am: Initial X-rays reveal what appears to be an undisturbed fracture of the Carlos CorreaRight middle finger, the twins announced after the team’s 5-3 loss to the Orioles on Thursday. The short-lived star, who signed the twins to a shocking 3-year $105.3 million contract off-season, will undergo a CT scan today to confirm the nature of the injury.

It looks like Correa got injured in the seventh game while trying to check his swing against A Brian Baker change. He also took a hit in his previous appearances on the board (a Spencer Watkins Fastball from his left wrist), but the pitch that appears to have caused the injury actually resulted in him getting off the ground after moving into a fair area.

If a CT scan confirms the initial diagnosis, Correa should not require surgery, although it is not yet clear how long it will be. benefit man Nick Gordon He took charge of Korea after injury, but the coach Rocco Baldeley (Or, while Baldeley is away from the team after testing positive for COVID, coach Jesse Tengler could also turn to Jorge Polancowhich is likely to put Louis Araz In a daily role in the second base. third man base Jiu Orchila He’s also cut some short time in his big league career, though he’s unlikely to be seen as anything more than a short-term option.

If Korea misses any significant time, the twins could also turn out as top prospect (and top overall pick in the 2017 draft) Royce Lewis, which came out to .310/.427/.560 starts on Triple-A St. Paul via 103 season opener panel appearances. The club may not want to rush Luis, especially given that until April he had not seen a game – or played above Double-A – since 2019 after tearing up the ACL ahead of the 2021 season.

While the twins obviously hope to get Korea back as quickly as possible, he’s slowly started something with his new outfit. Even after out of the gate in May (1,036 OPS in a sample of four games), Correa’s 2022.264/.323/.385 hitting streak is well below his .276/.355/.478 triple slash career, particularly in the power department. Given the possibility of him pulling out of the last two years of his deal at the end of the season (even after indicating he’s open to a long-term deal at the Twin Cities), the number-one twins are hoping. I see him back in the field – and back in shape – sooner rather than later.
