Houston Astros star Carlos Correa is expected to miss the next four to six weeks after suffering a fractured rib recently.

                        Prior to the All-Star shortstop's statement Wednesday afternoon, there was no information out there regarding said injury. That’s now changed. The 24-year-old Correa released a statement indicating that he suffered the fracture rib while receiving a massage at his home on Tuesday, via Jake Kaplan of The Athletic:

                        “I’m extremely disappointed about not being on the field with my teammates. I sustained the rib fracture during a massage at my home on Tuesday. To sustain an injury in such an unusual way makes it even more frustrating. However, I will work hard to get back on the field as quickly as possible to help our team achieve our goal of winning another championship.”

                        That’s a strange way to find yourself on the injured list for a substantial period of time. No word yet on what type of massage led to this injury.

                        Correa was hitting .295 with 11 homers, 35 RBI and a .360 OBP at the time of the injury. He’ll now likely be sidelined until mid-July. Ouch!
