Twins Get Huge Update On Carlos Correa Friday Afternoon

After leaving Thursday night's game with what was tentatively diagnosed as a fractured finger, Carlos Correa appeared headed to the injured list. But a CT Scan on Friday afternoon has left Correa and the Minnesota Twins breathing a huge sigh of relief. No fracture. 

Twins president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said Correa is now day-to-day, and will not be placed on the IL. Instead, the medical staff will manage the inflammation and soreness and track Correa's progress from there. 

The other big Twins news of the day, said Falvey, won't be affected by this new update. In anticipation of Correa missing significant time, the team had called up longtime top prospect Royce Lewis to play shortstop. 

As for Correa, who signed a 3-year, $105M contract with the Twins this spring, he was thanking his lucky stars for the good news. 

"Thank you Lord 🙏🏽" tweeted Correa. Safe to say, the Minnesota Twins echo those sentiments.
