Correa was hit in the hand area twice in Minnesota's loss to the Orioles Thursday and exited the game in the seventh inning.
Correa will be placed on the injured list and Minnesota will promote Royce Lewis, the No. 1 pick in the 2017 MLB Draft, to make his debut, a source told The Athletic.
Correa was hit in the hand area twice in Minnesota's 5-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles Thursday and exited the game in the seventh inning.
"Preliminary imaging does reveal the potential for a non-displaced fracture of the right middle finger," the Twins said. "If Carlos Correa's fracture is a non-displaced fracture, he likely wouldn't require surgery."
The team added that Correa will get a CT scan Friday.
Correa's three-year, $105.3 million free-agent deal with the Twins was the shock move of the MLB offseason. The two-time All-Star got off to a slow start this season but has gotten hot over the last eight games. He's now slashing .264/.323/.385 with two home runs.
Lewis, 22, is off to a strong start at Triple-A St. Paul, slashing .310/.427/.560 with three home runs, 11 doubles and eight stolen bases in 23 games. Minnesota's No. 4 prospect, according to Keith Law, Lewis missed all of last season because of a torn ACL and spent 2020 at the team's alternate site during the pandemic-shortened season.
