Carlos Correa, the Houston Astros’ shortstop, tests positive for COVID-19

The Minnesota Twins announced after Monday’s 7-5 loss to the Detroit Tigers that Carlos Correa had tested positive for COVID-19.

“We discovered out during the game,” Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. “He’s at the hotel recovering and we’ll figure out what the future holds for him.”

According to Baldelli, the 27-year-old shortstop was feeling uneasy but did not have major symptoms.

“He’s a little uneasy at the moment, but that’s all there is to it,” Baldelli said. “For now, I think pausing to recover and hydrating are the most essential things.”

The Minnesota Twins faced the Detroit Tigers on Monday in their first meeting of a five-game, four-day series.

“There have been a few players stay behind in towns, but there are more options available,” Baldelli added. “We haven’t departed yet, so no one is going anywhere yet”

Correa is having a fantastic season for the Minnesota Twins, hitting .279 with a .751 OPS. He departed the Houston Astros after seven long years. In March, he signed a $105.3 million, three-year contract, which allows him to leave after the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
