Twins place Correa on IL with foot injury
The Minnesota Twins placed shortstop Carlos Correa on the 10-day injured list, the club announced Wednesday.
Outfielder Trevor Larnach was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move.
Correa has been dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left foot and was forced to leave Monday's game in the first inning after experiencing a flare-up.
Twins bench coach Jayce Tingler said Wednesday that the club is optimistic Correa will be ready for the start of the postseason, according to Bobby Nightengale of the Star Tribune.
Correa said last Friday that he and the Twins have been trying to manage the injury since it popped up in late May, according to MLB.com's Do-Hyoung Park.
"Obviously, I've been trying to manage this for a while now," Correa said Monday. "Some days after are better than others. Today really felt like a great day until that moment. We'll see."
Correa has struggled this season after agreeing to a six-year, $200-million contract to remain with the Twins this past offseason. The 28-year-old owns a .230/.312/.399 slash line with 18 home runs and 65 RBIs in 135 games this season.
