The Minnesota Twins announced Wednesday that they have placed shortstop Carlos Correa on the 10-day injured list with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
Correa was removed from Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds after experiencing a popping sensation in his left heel when tracking down a shallow fly ball. He has played through the injury since May but Minnesota thought this was the right time to sideline him. Minnesota (80-72) leads the American League Central by eight games with 10 remaining in the regular season.
Correa has played in a team-leading 135 games this season, hitting .230 (118-for-514) with 29 doubles, two triples, 18 home runs, 65 RBI, 60 runs scored, 59 walks, a .312 on-base percentage and a .711 OPS. To replace Correa on the 28-man roster, the Twins recalled outfielder Trevor Larnach from Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding move. In 72 games for the Saints this season, Larnach has hit .271 (71-for-262) with 14 doubles, one triple, 15 home runs, 47 RBI and an .888 OPS. In 50 games for the Twins this season, Larnach has hit .216 (35-for-162) with six doubles, three triples, six home runs and 32 RBI.
