Lumbar discectomy, I assume.  Several MLB position players have had the proceedure with varying results upon return, but I can't think of one as young as Correa, Neil Walker was 30, that's as close as I get.

Correa has a ruptured disk?
Goin' for a bus ride.

I've been assuming he has a disc issue, yes.  Come to think of it, have they ever announced what was specifically wrong with him? 

eta:  I am aware that this is not why he's currently on the DL, and am not advocating that he have back surgery this offseason.

Of course they have: discomfort.

How does one get this fixed?

Back surgery if he has herniated discs. I had two, and I was almost 70 for the second one. Immediate fix, short and easy rehab.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

With a neurosurgeon, simple disc surgery is easy.

I have arthritis in my lower back.  Constant and nagging pain.  And Aleve only goes so far.  I have no idea what is wrong with Correa's back, but I know I couldn't swing a bat with my condition.  I hope that what he has is fixable. 
Boom!

Yeah, me too. You have my sympathy for your situation. Back pack can be unbearable; I could not function. Luckily mine was simple, fixable, and easy. No pain drugs or Aleve required.

I have not read any statement about the cause of Correa’s pain.

per Berman, Springer will be evaluated tomorrow and is considered day to day.

Concussion protocol, no doubt. Glad he did not snap his neck.

Yep, I was really worried about neck damage, a cracked bone or something like that.

Chandler Rome tweet:  Josh Reddick: "When me and Mike got there, (Springer) seemed to be very alert. He just kept saying he had a headache. That was a positive sign. He wasn’t dizzy. He didn’t have any memory loss out there. He made sure he answered all the questions right."

The Brewers announcers discussed the confusion caused by the length of the warning track last night, as Springer was being attended to.

Quote
(1:33:00) The "extra wide" warning track got him there.  He thot he was closer to the wall than he actually was.....


For some reason, the warning track is five feet deep rather than the usual three feet.  That's why he jumped too soon. 

Why is the warning track so deep?

To give the OFers more time before they hit the wall.

Three feet or thee yards? Three feet is just a step and not much of a "warning" for a guy running.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

Warning tracks are a lot wider than three feet.  The typical track is about 15 feet.  The conventional wisdom is giving the outfielder three strides before hitting the wall.  Normally, outfielders will familiarize themselves with the track and the wall at every ballpark, usually part of pre-game warmups or bp.  I don't know if Springer did that or not, but it's not a park he's used to playing at, so if it's unusually wide, that could be the source of his thinking he was closer than he was. 
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Snuffy, you appear to be relatively new to baseball. If you want to know the potential consequences of no padded walls and (almost certainly) of no warning tracks, do a little reading about Pete Reiser.

Correction: Listened to it again: they called it a "five-stepper", rather than a "three-stepper" warning track.

I do have a lot to learn - that's why I am here.
Upset to know that the unusual length of the warning track may have had a part in Springer's injury.
They mentioned he had not played much on this field.

Springer’s fault for not knowing this. Not the field’s fault or the Brewers’.
