Jed Lowrie being out until the All-Star Break doesn't mean Carlos Correa. Not yet.

DJ LeMahieu wouldn't have been the first, second, or third top choice for Rockie to finish April hitting around .400

The Twins had two regulars with OPS+ better than 100 prior to their outburst versus Chris Sale.
24 Cincinnati Reds Cincinnati Reds 12-13
Add Homer Bailey to the “out for the season” list.

Who had Chris Sale allowing eight runs to the Twins?
