Astros shortstop Carlos Correa left Thursday’s game against the Rangers after appearing to injure his left ankle while running out a grounder. 

Correa was injured in the fifth inning when he appeared to twist his ankle after stepping on first base. He came up limping and was examined by a trainer. 

After Correa was pulled from the game, Jose Altuve moved from second base to shortstop and Tony Kemp took Correa’s spot in the lineup, playing second. Altuve, a Gold Glove second baseman, had never played shortstop in the majors before. 

Correa, 21, was last season’s AL Rookie of the Year. He is batting .254 with a .770 OPS this season.
