AT&T Sportsnet reporter Julia Morales reports that the Astros plan to place shortstop Carlos Correa on the 10-day disabled list with back soreness on Friday.

Correa hasn’t been in the lineup since Monday. It’s not clear what caused his back soreness. The 23-year-old is batting .268/.352/.480 with 13 home runs and 49 RBI in 315 plate appearances this season.

Marwin Gonzalez has filled in at shortstop when Correa hasn’t been in the lineup, so that figures to be the case going forward.
