Carlos Correa Leaves Early

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Carlos Correa left yesterday’s game early with back discomfort. He is listed as day-to-day, although he said he is not comfortable. If he requires a stint on the IL, the Astros will most likely need to call someone up to play SS with Aledmys Diaz injured as well.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Carlos Correa to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 55.51 projected fantasy points puts him at #27 behind Dansby Swanson and ahead of Bo Bichette. He is expected to be out through 9/9 which impacts his rest of season ranking. He has averaged 2.93 fantasy points in his past 182 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.51 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#2) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 97%, he is the #8 most highly owned shortstop. Carlos Correa is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #28 fantasy position rank.
