Correa Hot Coming Off DL
Since he returned to action on 5/10 from a hand injury, Carlos Correa has had a base hit in eight of his first nine games back. In fact the only game he hasn't gotten a hit in was the very first game back; so he has an eight game hitting streak going on right now. He finished April hitting just .221/.384/.397. Since he has returned from the DL, he is hitting .382/.477/.412. He has had multiple hits in four of his last five games.
It may be that he is finally adjusting to the better pitching but I am curious if he is taking a more aggressive approach at the plate. In April, in 18 games (86 PA), he had 15 walks and 23 strike outs. In the nine games (39 PA) he has played in May, he has just four walks and five strike outs.
