More Bad Injury News For Twins

With Miguel Sano out with surgery for a torn meniscus, Alex Kirilloff still trying to recover from a wrist injury, and Luiz Arraez placed on the Covid injured list, the Minnesota Twins are losing position players at an alarming rate. Now add shortstop Carlos Correa to that list, as he suffered a fractured middle finger Thursday night after a hit-by-pitch.

Immediate x-rays indicated a non-displaced fracture, which would be a much quicker recovery timeline than a displaced one, though further imaging is taking place on Friday to get more clarity on the situation.

Correa actually got dinged twice in the game, first on his wrist in the 5th inning, then in the 7th, on a swing while making contact with the ball (and his hand). That latter incident is what's caused the fracture. 

The 27-year-old free agent-signee was only recently getting his bat in gear, batting .313 over the past two weeks, with a homer and 9 RBIs. Overall on the season, he's batting .255 with a .693 OPS with 2 HR and 11 RBIs.
