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.

Reds prospect Nick Senzel will miss at least the next few weeks due to a sprained right ankle, Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Senzel suffered the injury in a minor league game on Monday, sliding into second base.

Last week, the Reds reassigned Senzel to minor league camp. His agent, Joel Wolfe, called it an “egregious case of service time manipulation.” The matter has been cleanly resolved with the injury, not unlike Vladimir Guerrero, Jr.

Senzel, 23, is the Reds’ No. 1 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline. He was getting work in center field this spring after playing second and third base last year (and even a game at shortstop) in the minors. With Triple-A Louisville, Senzel hit .310/.378/.509 with six home runs and 25 RBI in 193 plate appearances.
