Twins say Carlos Correa may have broken finger after HBP

BALTIMORE – Minnesota Twins star Carlos Correa may have a broken finger after being hit by a pitch in Baltimore Thursday night.

The twins said after the game preliminary imaging showed the potential for an undisplaced fracture of Correa’s right middle finger. Correa is expected to undergo a CT scan on Friday and the team will then confirm a diagnosis.

Correa left Minnesota’s 5-3 loss to the Orioles in the seventh inning after a pitch hit his hand while still holding the batter’s grip. The ball bounced into play and Correa was easily knocked out with a 3-1 putout.

Correa had also been hit by a pitch early in the game. This ball seemed to bounce off his wrist or arm before hitting his right shoulder.

The twins signed Correa to a three-year, $105.3 million deal this offseason, with the players dropping out after the first two seasons. The former Houston shortstop got off to a slow start this year but has been developing strongly lately. He hits .255 with two homers and 11 RBIs.
