HOUSTON — Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa has a fractured rib that will keep him out 4 to 6 weeks.

It is unclear when or how Correa was injured. He played Sunday, then had what Manager AJ Hinch called a scheduled day off Monday. Hinch said Correa reported soreness around his ribs Tuesday morning and was kept out of the lineup.

Correa was sent for evaluation, and General Manager Jeff Luhnow announced that Correa was being placed on the 10-day injured list.

Correa’s injury is the latest blow to the first-place Astros, already without injured stars George Springer and Jose Altuve.
