HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610)- Carlos Correa and Aaron Sanchez are headed to the 10-day injured list, Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced after Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Detroit Tigers.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Correa left Monday's game after the first inning due to back discomfort, and while he was hopeful, Hinch said before Tuesday's game he was unlikely to avoid a trip to the injured list, his second of the season.

Sanchez left his fourth start as an Astro with one out in the third after Hinch noticed a drop in his velocity. Sanchez reported pectoral discomfort, an issue that he has dealt with throughout the season.

The Astros will make the moves official before Wednesday's game against the Tigers.
