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.

SNY’s Andy Martino reports that Mets pitcher Robert Gsellman has been diagnosed with a partial lat tear. There is no timetable yet for his recovery, but it would seem likely he doesn’t pitch again this season.

Gsellman, 26, went on the injured list on Saturday (retroactive to August 14) with what was initially called right triceps tightness. Across 63 2/3 innings of relief for the Mets this season, the right-hander posted a 4.66 ERA with 60 strikeouts and 23 walks.

Losing Gsellman is a big deal for the Wild Card-hopeful Mets. While his ERA wasn’t anything incredible, he was a workhorse, accruing the most innings of anyone in the bullpen. With Gsellman out of the mix, the Mets will lean even more on Seth Lugo and Jeurys Familia behind struggling closer Edwin Díaz.
