Carlos Correa is not in the Astros’ Opening Day lineup today versus the Rays.

Correa is day-to-day to open the regular season after tweaking his neck in a rundown last Friday. He’s continued to experience neck stiffness since then. He took some swings today and said he “didn’t feel right,” thus the scratch. Aledmys Diaz will play short in his absence.
