Twins activate Correa, send rookie Lewis Triple-A

Carlos Correa returns to Minnesota Twins from IL; rookie Royce Lewis sent back to Triple-A 11:49 AM ET Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Minnesota Twins reinstated shortstop Carlos Correa from the injured list Wednesday before their game at Oakland and sent thriving rookie Royce Lewis back to Triple-A St. Paul. Correa missed 11 games with a bruised right middle finger. A pitch hit him there while he gripped the handle of the bat in the middle of a swing. Correa was held out two days past the minimum stay. Lewis didn't miss a beat, deftly filling in at shortstop and contributing often at the plate during his 11-game major league debut. The first overall pick in the 2017 draft hit .308 with four doubles, two homers, five RBIs and five runs in 39 at-bats, but the Twins preferred he continue to get regular playing time at shortstop. Correa was batting .255 with five doubles, two homers, 11 RBIs and 12 runs in 94 at-bats before the injury.
