The Minnesota Twins will be without shortstop Carlos Correa as the shortstop tested positive for COVID-19. Correa was out of the lineup Monday against the Detroit Tigers and is likely going to miss the rest of the series.

Correa has been a solid pickup for the Twins this season, who are leading the AL Central. The shortstop is hitting .279 with three home runs and 16 RBIs in 140 at-bats. With Correa out of the lineup, look for Minnesota to go with Luis Arraez or Jorge Polanco at shortstop if things get juggled around the infield.
Correa signed a three-year, $105.3 million deal with the Twins this offseason, with the ability to opt out of the deal after each season. Minnesota is +115 to win the AL Central on DraftKings Sportsbook, which is surprising considering the Twins hold a 4.5-game lead at the moment over the White Sox, who are -120 to win. Hopefully for Minnesota’s sake, Correa can recover quickly and get back to the field soon.
