Astros’ Correa feeling better after nose surgery

Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa revealed Saturday that he had surgery to repair a deviated septum that caused him to experience trouble breathing during the regular season.Correa had the procedure earlier this week. He spoke during a charity event at Minute Maid Park.”It’s annoying,” Correa said to a group of reporters. “I was having trouble breathing. I saw a doctor. He told me I needed surgery on my nose. I was like, ‘All right, let’s fix it.'”The 24-year-old struggled at times last season, although it is unclear how much his respiratory issues had to do with that. Correa hit .239 with 15 homers and 65 RBIs, which marked a steep drop from his output in 2017 (.315, 24 homers, 84 RBIs).The Astros advanced to the AL Championship Series despite a down season from their shortstop.
