Rookies Sano, Correa out for opener between Astros and Twins
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) A showdown between two of the top rookies in the American League will have to wait.
Correa missed his second straight game with a strained left hamstring. Astros manager A.J. Hinch says Correa was still a little bit sore after an off-day on Thursday. With a five-game lead in the AL West, Hinch says he wasn't hesitating to play it safe with his young star to avoid any long-term issues.
Twins manager Paul Molitor says Sano has been bothered by a sore right hamstring for a few days. Molitor hopes Sano will return as a DH on Saturday.
