Fantasy owners who recently got Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout back from a six-week disabled list stint after he tore a thumb ligament in late May know it’s not much fun being without a great player. Well, Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa is a great player and slated to miss a similar amount of time after he aggravated his own thumb injury, described similarly as a torn ligament. Correa was originally hurt two weeks ago but was placed on the DL Tuesday and, if the timetable holds, could return by September.
