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.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman is reporting that starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi and the Astros have agreed on a 2-year year contract with a 3rd-year player option. Odorizzi is 30 years old with a 3.92 career ERA. This signing seems to indicate Framber Valdez will miss significant time with a fractured left ring finger. But overall, the Astros rotation is looking good with the addition of Odorizzi, and hopefully Valdez will return to the rotation at some point this season.
