Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) returned to the lineup Monday, Aug. 31, against the Seattle Mariners. He had a two-run home run, finishing 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Correa ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) appears to be fine after his four-game absence and it is safe to use him in FantasyScore again.

Astros | Carlos Correa returns to face Seattle

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:04:02 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is starting at shortstop and batting third against Seattle Mariners SP Vidal Nuno Monday, Aug. 31. OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Return Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) to all your seasonal lineups, but he might not be the slam-dunk FantasyScore play he has usually been Monday. He has missed the past four games, so Correa may need a game or two to shake off the rust. View him as a high-risk, high-reward play in daily contests with a prime matchup Monday.

Astros | Carlos Correa remains out of the lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:41:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and batting second against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to remain patient with Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in seasonal leagues, and avoid him at FantasyScore until he returns, which is expected to be sooner than later. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) stands as a viable value play in daily contests Sunday. He is batting .300 over 34 games since the All-Star break.

Astros | Carlos Correa questionable vs. Twins

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 05:50:06 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) will not play against the Minnesota Twins Sunday, Aug. 20, unless he is 100% healthy, according to manager A.J. Hinch. "It's a pretty simple decision. If there's sensitivity in there and he's showing any signs of discomfort, it's a no. No different than parenting."

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to check back for an official word on Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap), but it wouldn't be shocking to see him return Sunday. Still, he might not be the safest play at FantasyScore after missing time. The rookie has hit a bit of a road bump in August, too. He sports a .238/.354/.440 slash line, but the power has remained with five long flies and 14 RBI. Continue to view Correa as a high-end shortstop in all fantasy formats.

Astros | Carlos Correa not in the lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:29:48 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Saturday, Aug. 29. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at shortstop and is batting second, while OF Jake Marisnick is starting in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor Correa's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) status to see when he may be able to return to the lineup. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) and Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could be cheaper options for owners on FantasyScore.

Astros | Carlos Correa nursing hammy soreness

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:28:32 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is dealing with soreness in his left hamstring and is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Gibson Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. It doesn't appear to be a serious injury, so there is potential for Correa to rejoin the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 29. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is a sneaky value play at FantasyScore Friday, as he is 11-for-38 with four extra-base hits and a .834 OPS over his past 12 games. Still, Gonzalez is a long way from a lineup lock.

Astros | Carlos Correa has day off

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 07:49:24 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa is out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26, with 3B Jed Lowrie (hand) returning to hit third.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is hitting just .194-1-7 this month, but he's at a cheap price for a three-hole hitter. Michael Pineda isn't a bad matchup on FantasyScore.

Astros | Carlos Correa snaps slump

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 17:57:05 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and steal in a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) had been hitless in three straight games, but he returned to form a bit Sunday. That being said, he could be a rookie wall, so you may want to make sure Correa is back on track before paying up for him at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has hit safely in eight straight games, going 11-for-32 (.344) with five homers and seven RBIs during the impressive run. FantasyScore players should be using him nightly for power at the shortstop spot.
