Minnesota shortstop Carlos Correa has been placed on the 10-day injured list because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

Correa was not in the lineup Tuesday night, a day after he left a game against Cincinnati after one inning. Correa made a sudden stop after catching TJ Friedl's popup in short left field.

"He came in and it was still sore," interim manager and bench coach Jayce Tingler said. "They're checking it out with the trainer and doing some testing and getting some further evaluations."

The checkup included an MRI.

Tingler said it was too early to plan for the return of the two-time All-Star, who has been bothered by the injury since May. The Twins have an off day Thursday.

"Usually, it's a couple of days and he's back in," Tingler said. "It's truly day to day. We'll see where we're at on Friday."

Correa, who turns 29 on Friday, leads Minnesota with 135 games and is hitting .230.

The Twins recalled Trevor Larnach to replace Correa on the roster.
