Carlos Correa out of lineup for 4th straight game; Astros expect him back Tuesday

capitals-243The Houston Astros expect shortstop Carlos Correa to be ready to return to the lineup on Tuesday, manager A.J. Hinch said Sunday.

Correa was out of the lineup for the fourth straight game Sunday with soreness in his right side, but Hinch said the Astros are just being ultra conservative with the 23-year-old All-Star, who is in his fourth season.

The Astros also placed right-handed reliever Joe Smith on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with right elbow soreness with the move retroactive to Thursday. Hinch said the Astros were sending Smith back to Houston to get evaluated. Left-hander Reymin Guduan was recalled from Triple-A Fresno in a corresponding move.

Cespedes was playing for Double-A Binghamton rehabbing a hip injury when he was pulled from the game.

The right-handed slugger hit two doubles before exiting the game and had been close to returning to the Mets.

Should the Seahawks trade Thomas or give him an extension?

Brady Henderson, Seahawks reporter: I doubt that Thomas would take much less than the $13 million that Eric Berry makes a year as the league’s highest-paid safety, so I would try to extend him with a similar average but structure it in a way that minimizes the financial commitment in later seasons. The Seahawks would be much better off keeping Thomas in the fold given all the key pieces their defense has lost, but they also have to protect themselves in the long term after getting burned on big-money extensions for Kam Chancellor and Michael Bennett. Accomplishing both might be easier said than done.

I feel I’m going to enjoy this weekend more than anybody because I really like the colors, Rojas said.
