HOUSTON -- All-Star Carlos Correa left the Houston Astros' 9-7 loss to the Seattle Mariners because of a jammed left thumb. Correa was pulled Monday after swinging and missing at a pitch in the fourth inning. He grimaced in pain and walked around for a moment before trainers arrived. He was replaced by Marwin Gonzalez. Correa jammed the same thumb on a headfirst slide at home plate July 4 and sat out the next day. Correa, 22, is hitting .320 with 20 homers and 67 RBIs for the American League West-leading Astros. He drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in his first at-bat Monday. The team says he will be re-evaluated Tuesday. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
