Twins’ Woes Deepen as Carlos Correa Exits Game with Oblique Strain…

Heartbreak for Twins as Correa Forced to Leave Early Due to Oblique Strain.

In a setback for the Minnesota Twins, star shortstop Carlos Correa had to exit Friday night’s game against the Detroit Tigers due to an oblique strain. The injury occurred in the third inning shortly after Correa struck out.

Expressing the team’s disappointment, outfielder Byron Buxton described the moment as “like a gut punch,” following the Twins’ 8-2 loss to Detroit.

The Twins, already dealing with the absence of infielder Royce Lewis, who has been sidelined for two weeks with a strained quadriceps, now face the possibility of being without Correa for an extended period.

Carlos Correa, a pivotal figure for the reigning AL Central champions, has been instrumental in the team’s lineup, despite the Twins’ struggles at the plate, with a league-low batting average of .184. Correa himself boasts a commendable .306 batting average with four RBIs.

Buxton voiced the team’s frustration, stating, “It’s pretty frustrating,” reflecting on the impact of Correa’s absence.

Correa, who recently signed a lucrative six-year, $200 million contract to stay with the Twins, faced a challenging season last year, hitting a career-low .230 with 18 home runs and 65 RBIs. He also battled through injuries, missing the final 11 games of the season due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Despite this setback, Correa returned for the playoffs, delivering a stellar performance with a .409 batting average and four RBIs in the postseason series against Toronto and Houston.
