Twins' Correa aggravates plantar fasciitis, exits

Over the weekend, Correa said he has been dealing with pain from the injury for four months, the Star Tribune reported.

Correa is in his second season with the Twins after spending the first seven of his major league career with the Houston Astros, who drafted him with the first overall pick in 2012. He was named American League Rookie of the Year in 2015 and finished fifth in the MVP voting in 2021, when he won his only Gold Glove Award.

The Twins sit atop the AL Central at 79-72. Entering Monday, their magic number to clinch the division was five.
