The Minnesota Twins have struggled offensively to start the 2022 regular season.
Entering play Monday, they sit 10th in the American League in runs scored with just 33.
The Twins are also in the cellar of the AL Central division with a 3-6 record.
However, Correa is not concerned and believes that more is to come for this team.
“That’s what happens when you play 162 every year,” Correa said. “There are some ups. There are some downs. We just happened to start in a down right now. But it’s going to pick back up.”
Carlos Correa: "Offense hasn't got it going yet like it should. But that's what happens when you play 162 every year. There are some ups. There are some downs. We just happened to start in a down right now. But it's going to pick back up … it's going to be fun again." #MNTwins

No Time To Panic
Though every game counts and the Twins need to pick it back up, Correa is smart to not hit the panic button.
There is still plenty of time left in the season and there’s no reason to panic this early.
The Twins offense is full of stars that are capable of producing at the big-league level.
Nine games into the season is hardly a time to start worrying.
Besides, even with a 3-6 record, the Twins are only three games back of the first place Chicago White Sox.
The season is still young, and the Twins are fully capable of turning things around.
Correa is smart to still be optimistic.
If the struggles continue into May, then there will be a reason to start questioning some things.
But right now, there’s no reason to worry too much about where the Twins are headed.
This is a good team on paper with goals to bounce back from a bad 2021 season.
As Correa said, it’s only a matter of time before they start clicking again.
