On Tuesday afternoon, the Minnesota Twins announced that both starting pitcher Chris Paddack (inflammation in his right elbow) and shortstop Carlos Correa have been placed on the 10-day injured list. Outfielder Mark Contreras and right-handed pitcher Jharel Cotton were activated as a corresponding move. The moves weren’t particularly shocking, although the club hoped Correa could avoid a stint on the injury list.

Correa was shot twice in the right hand last Thursday and suffered a bruised middle finger. The move on Tuesday is retroactive to May 6th. With that in mind, the notable news is that Correa will miss a three-game streak against the Astros that begins Tuesday in Minnesota.

Correa was drafted first overall by the Astros in 2012 and spent seven seasons with the Premier League side. While in Houston, he was Rookie of the Year, a two-time All-Star, Gold Glover, played in three World Series and was a member of the 2017 World Series Champions. He finished fifth in MVP voting last season.

Last offseason, Correa signed a three-year, $105.3 million deal with the Twins. Although it officially ended his stint with the Astros, there is no sign of bad blood or anything negative between Correa and his former team. It’s just a remarkable reunion that will have to wait.

The twins are visiting Houston August 23-25, so hopefully it will happen there, likely to a warm ovation from the Houston fans.

Both the Twins and Astros go into action Tuesday with 18-11 records. The Twins place Carlos Correa on injured list as Star shortstop misses series against Astros
