Astros continue series vs. Angels without SS Correa

HOUSTON -- Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, mired in an extended batting slump linked to debilitating back soreness, will not play this weekend against the Los Angeles Angels.

Correa (.238, 14 home runs, 62 RBIs) missed 36 games after landing on the 10-day disabled list on June 26. Presumed healthy upon his return, Correa has struggled instead, posting a .174/.257/.223 slash line with only four extra-base hits in 140 plate appearances since being reinstated from the DL on Aug. 10.

"I don't like it by any means, but it's just the reality for us," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of Correa and his lingering back woes. "I think for Carlos to be who he is and what he can do for us we've got to get him to feel better.
