ROUND ROCK, TX (KXAN) — Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa will begin a rehab assignment Monday night with the Round Rock Express.

Correa fractured his rib during a massage in late May. At this time, he’s missed over six weeks of action while recovering from the injury.

Correa was placed on Houston’s 10-day injured list on May 29 before being moved to the 60-day injured list on July 12 meaning he won’t eligible to rejoin the Astros until July 26.

The 24-year-old was swinging a hot bat with the Astros prior to his injury. Correa owns a .295 batting average with 13 doubles, a triple, 11 home runs and 35 RBI in 50 games with the club in 2019.

Jose Altuve played three games with the Express in June before returning to the Astros line-up on June 19.

Round Rock is hosting Memphis for a four-game series at Dell Diamond starting Monday night. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
