It remains to be seen whether Lewis will stay in the majors after Korea’s return (and in fact, only how long will he stay in Korea), but he will be the first taste of the majors in the top overall pick in the 2017 amateur draft. Although he has proven he can take on Triple-A competition so far in 2022, he has played just 56 games over High-A in his minor league career.

7:54 am: Initial X-rays reveal what appears to be an undisturbed fracture of the Carlos CorreaRight middle finger, the twins announced after the team’s 5-3 loss to the Orioles on Thursday. The short star, who was signed by the twins to a shocking 3-year $105.3 million contract this off-season, will undergo a CT scan today to confirm the nature of the injury.

It looks like Correa got injured in the seventh game while trying to check his swing against A Brian Baker change.

The club may not want to rush Luis, especially given that until April he had not seen a game – or played above Double-A – since 2019 after tearing up the ACL ahead of the 2021 season.

While the twins obviously hope to get Korea back as quickly as possible, he’s slowly started something with his new outfit. Even after coming out of the gate in May (1,036 OPS in a sample of four games), Correa’s 2022.264/.323/.385 hitting streak is well below his .276/.355/.478 triple slasher run, particularly in the power department .
