Carlos Correa, the shortstop for the Minnesota Twins, may miss more games after sitting out Tuesday’s loss due to a bruised left heel. An MRI revealed inflammation in his left heel, which he injured after taking an odd step while rounding first base in Monday’s loss. Correa leads the Twins in innings played this season, but he knew he wouldn’t play after waking up in more pain than he initially felt on Monday night. The team is off Thursday and resumes its homestand with a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays that begins on Friday.
The Twins have been struggling with injuries, with outfielder Trevor Larnach recently placed on the injured list with pneumonia and Jorge Polanco, Nick Gordon, and Max Kepler also on the IL. The team’s offense has also been inconsistent, with Buxton and Taylor hitting home runs in Tuesday’s game but the team only having one at-bat with a runner in scoring position. The Twins could have easily won six of their last eight games, but they lost two winnable games in Los Angeles and again in Anaheim and led through the middle innings on Tuesday.
Kenta Maeda, who has a right triceps strain, threw 35 pitches during a bullpen session on Tuesday and is scheduled for another bullpen on Friday, at which point he hopes to head out on a rehab assignment. Maeda has been working on his mechanics, which he struggled with before he was injured, and hopes to consistently maintain throwing 90 mph when he returns to game action. Reliever Caleb Thielbar also threw in the bullpen on Tuesday and is slowly building back up following an oblique strain.
