Astros GM Jeff Luhnow announced on Wednesday that Carlos Correa will miss some time as he recovers from a fractured rib. Correa had a scheduled day off on Monday and was a late scratch from the lineup on Tuesday. Luhnow told reporters that Correa was injured at home on Tuesday, but the cause of the injury was not mentioned. The Astros recalled Myles Straw from Triple-A to give the team more depth. Correa was having a nice season for the Astros hitting 11 home runs and batting .295. Houston's "Core 4" is down to just Alex Bregman as George Springer and Jose Altuve are still dealing with injuries.
