Following a down 2018, the second straight season derailed by injuries, Correa was making a bid to reclaim his star billing. After mustering just 15 homers and a 101 wRC+ last season, his power returned with 11 long balls and a 143 wRC+ in 50 games. The steals, however have not; he has just one. He's also chasing more pitches off the plate and whiffing more, but a rise in exit velocity and .392 xwOBA vouch for the hot start. Correa was validating the lofty draft cost before fracturing his ribs while getting a massage at home. (Seriously.) He returned on July 26 and is once again a fixture in all fantasy lineups.

Correa was again playing great baseball for the Astros prior to his fractured rib which has held him out for two months. Now that he is coming back, he should quickly return to being a top 10 fantasy shortstop and top 50 fantasy asset overall.

Correa has been out since late May with a fractured rib, the latest in a long list of maladies that have plagued the star-crossed shortstop. But he should be back by the end of July, and has demonstrated the ability to produce at a near-.300/30 HR pace when healthy, so perhaps he'll finish the season strong.
