Correa posted a video of him at batting practice showing his injury improvement. Fans were happy to see him doing well, but were quick to comment on his attire.

Correa is wearing a gray tank top and jean short shorts in the video.

Instagram user JKim412 commented, "Did you buy those shorts for 90 percent off? Because 90 percent is missing."

"Those Daisy Dukes though," commented Instagram user paintedfenderflares.

Other fans commented that they didn't care what he wears, they just want him healthy enough to play.
