  • Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in the Astros' 7-4 win over the Royals on Sunday.
    Advice: Correa opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the top of the first, belted a solo homer in the top of the eighth, and tallied his third RBI of the afternoon on a run-scoring sac fly in the top of the ninth. The 23-year-old shortstop boasts an .855 OPS, 13 home runs, and 47 RBI in 245 at-bats this season for the defending-champion Astros, who have rattled off 11 straight victories -- 10 of them on the road. It's the second-longest winning streak in franchise history.
  • Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with a homer on Friday in a victory over the Royals.
    Advice: The homer gives Correa 12 on the season, with this blast being of the solo variety off of Kansas City starter Jake Junis. It also gives Correa 44 RBI on the season over 64 games, and his .858 OPS is right along the lines of the 23-year-old's career mark. It's maybe not the breakout campaign many hoped for, but it's another strong season for one of the best young shortstops in baseball.
  • Carlos Correa (side) returned to the lineup Tuesday in Oakland and he finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored.
    Advice: Correa certainly didn't show any signs of the discomfort in his right side when he turned on a second-inning offering from Daniel Mengden. It wasn't a 100 percent successful night, as he was charged with his first error of the season on a booted ball, but the good news was that he made it through the entire game without any setbacks.
