8:47 AM: As some expected, per report From Jon Morosi of the MLB Network, the twins will summon a potential client Royce Lewis, will likely take Korea’s place on the list. It remains to be seen whether Lewis will stay in the majors after Korea’s return (and in fact, only how long will he stay in Korea), but he will be the first taste of the majors in the top overall pick in the 2017 amateur draft. Although he has proven his ability to take on Triple-A competition so far in 2022, he has played only 56 games over High-A in his minor league career.
7:54 am: Initial X-rays reveal what appears to be an undisturbed fracture of the Carlos CorreaRight middle finger, the twins announced after the team’s 5-3 loss to the Orioles on Thursday. The short-lived star, who signed the twins to a shocking 3-year $105.3 million contract off-season, will undergo a CT scan today to confirm the nature of the injury.
It looks like Correa got injured in the seventh game while trying to check his swing against A Brian Baker change. He also took a hit in his previous appearances on the board (a Spencer Watkins Fastball from his left wrist), but the pitch that appears to have caused the injury actually resulted in him getting off the ground after moving into a fair area.
If a CT scan confirms the initial diagnosis, Correa should not require surgery, although it is not yet clear how long it will be. benefit man Nick Gordon He took charge of Korea after injury, but the coach Rocco Baldeley (Or, while Baldeley is away from the team after testing positive for COVID, coach Jesse Tengler could also turn to Jorge Polancowhich is likely to put Louis Araz In a daily role in the second base. third man base Jiu Orchila He’s also cut some short time in his big league career, though he’s unlikely to be seen as anything more than a short-term option.
If Korea misses any significant time, the twins could also turn out as top prospect (and top overall pick in the 2017 draft) Royce Lewis, which came out to .310/.427/.560 starts on Triple-A St. Paul via 103 season opener panel appearances. The club may not want to rush Luis, especially given that until April he had not seen a game – or played above Double-A – since 2019 after tearing up the ACL ahead of the 2021 season.
While the twins obviously hope to get Korea back as quickly as possible, he’s slowly started something with his new outfit. Even after out of the gate in May (1,036 OPS in a sample of four games), Correa’s 2022.264/.323/.385 hitting streak is well below his .276/.355/.478 triple slash career, particularly in the power department. Due to the possibility of him withdrawing from the last two years of his deal at the end of the season (even after the signal who is open to it A long-term deal in the Twin Cities), the number one twin will be hoping to see him back on the field — and back in shape — sooner rather than later.
