Carlos Correa is expected to be in the Astros’ lineup tonight against the Cardinals.
Correa has missed nearly 50 games since fracturing a rib.
He was hitting .295 with 11 home runs and 35 rbi’s prior to the injury.
The Astros have reportedly traded first baseman Tyler White, who was recently designated for assignment, to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Astros will receive minor league right-handed pitcher Andre Scrubb.
White struggled in 71 games for the Astros this season, hitting .225 with three home runs and 21 RBI in his 218 at-bats. White had his best season in 2018, posting a .276 batting average with 12 homers in 66 games.
Scrubb was 6-1 with a 2.45 ERA in 29 games as a reliever for the Double-A Tulsa Drillers. Scrubb has yet to pitch at the Triple-A level.
