There aren’t many details available yet, but this sounds like it could be serious. Here’s what Jason Schwartz, a broadcaster for the High-A Lancaster JetHawks, was tweeting Saturday night

Correa will undergo a range of tests Sunday before the Astros reveal a diagnosis. The 19-year-old shortstop from Puerto Rico has hit .325/.416/.510 with six homers and 20 stolen bases through 62 games this season in the California League. He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft and Baseball America ranked him No. 7 on their 2014 ranking of the Top 100 prospects. Baseball Prospectus had him at No. 5.

The Yankees have activated shortstop Didi Gregorius from the 10-day disabled list, the club announced on Friday. Infielder Pete Kozma was designated for assignment to clear roster space.

Gregorius, 27, suffered a strained right shoulder while playing in the World Baseball Classic last month. He’s in Friday’s starting lineup, batting sixth against the Orioles.

Last season, Gregorius hit .276/.304/.447 with 20 home runs and 70 RBI in 597 plate appearances.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Mets will place outfielder Yoenis Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Cespedes left Thursday’s game after suffering the injury running the bases.

Things keep going poorly for the Mets, who are in last place in the NL East with an 8-13 record. Cespedes will join a lengthy list of names in the infirmary, including David Wright, Lucas Duda, Wilmer Flores, Steven Matz, Seth Lugo, and Noah Syndergaard.

Cespedes is batting a very productive .270/.373/.619 with six home runs and 10 RBI through his first 75 plate appearances.

With Cespedes out, Michael Conforto should be cemented as an everyday player and Juan Lagares will handle center field with Granderson moving back to right field and Jay Bruce covering first base.
