Correa's eighth-inning homer was his fifth of the year and his third in the last four games. Eight of his 22 RBI have come during that span. The 20-year-old leads the Texas League in RBI, average (.400), OPS (1.268) and slugging (.800). Corpus Christi fans should head to the ballpark now to see Correa while they still can. Houston's top prospect could be promoted to Triple-A Fresno any day now. Apr 29 - 3:01 PM

Astros prospect Carlos Correa had a productive night Saturday, going 3-for-5 with a homer and a stolen base for Double-A Corpus Christi in the second game of a doubleheader.

Correa rebounded nicely after going hitless in the first game of the doubleheader. The 20-year-old has quietly been one of the best hitters in Double-A this season, ranking fifth in the Texas League in batting average (.356) and second in RBI (16). It's only a matter of time before he gets called up to Triple-A Fresno.

Astros prospect Carlos Correa went deep for his first home run of 2015 Tuesday in a loss to Double-A Tulsa.

Correa is off to a nice start, hitting .308 with nine RBI in his first 26 at-bats. He put on some weight this offseason, which could boost his power numbers. The ultra-conservative Astros are hoping to keep Correa under team control for as long as possible and are unlikely to start his service clock until he's absolutely ready. The 20-year-old shouldn't see big league action until 2016 at the earliest.

Carlos Correa homered and doubled Wednesday as the Astros beat the Phillies 7-1.

Correa has impressed with a .297 average and two homers in 36 at-bats this spring. If not for last June's fractured fibula, he might have been making a Kris Bryant-like push for a spot on the Astros' Opening Day roster. As is, he's probably still a full year away.

Carlos Correa delivered a couple of singles in four at-bats and stole a base versus the Nationals on Monday.

Correa, coming back from a fractured fibula suffered last June, is 6-for-20 this spring. The first overall pick in the 2012 draft is expected to open this season in Double-A.
Mar 16 - 4:10 PM

During a Twitter chat on Wednesday, Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow wrote that prospect Carlos Correa (fibula) is expected to be fully recovered and ready for spring training.

Correa suffered a fractured fibula in June while playing with High-A Lancaster, but he has already resumed doing baseball activities, including running and fielding grounders. The 20-year-old was on the fast track to the majors prior to the injury and remains one of the game's most promising prospects.

Carlos Correa (fibula) said Monday that he expects to be "at full strength in the very near future."

Correa suffered a fractured fibula in June at High-A Lancaster and won't play in any games this fall, but he should have a relatively normal winter. The 20-year-old shortstop prospect was the first overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft and has shown tremendous promise both offensively and defensively in his short minor league career. He should reach the majors sometime in 2016.

Carlos Correa (fibula) is able to run and take ground balls while working out in Kissimmee, Florida.

"It's a very good sign, where we feel like we're ahead of plan, which is a good place to be," Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said of Correa's rehabilitation from a fractured right fibula. Correa won't participate in instructional league games, but he's progressed to the point that he may be able to continue to do baseball activities during that time. Correa may not play in any organized leagues over winter, Luhnow added, in hopes that he'll instead be ready when spring training opens in February.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Thursday that prospect shortstop Carlos Correa (fibula) is unlikely to be ready for the Arizona Fall League.

Correa underwent surgery last month to repair a fractured right fibula and a ligament issue, but the Astros were initially hopeful that he would be able to participate in the Arizona Fall League. However, they are now aiming to have him ready for spring training.

Carlos Correa recently underwent season-ending surgery for a fractured fibula, according to Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow.

It was previously reported that Correa sustained a serious injury during a game on Saturday, and now we know the nature of that injury. He'll be off his feet for four weeks before being fitted for a walking boot, and Luhnow has already said he won't return this season. A trip to the Arizona Fall League is possible, but Correa is still probably at least two years from making his MLB debut anyway.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Monday that prospect shortstop Carlos Correa (ankle) is expected to "miss a significant period of time."

Correa suffered a serious ankle injury while sliding into third base on Saturday at High-A Lancaster and had to be carted off the field. We should know more about an exact timetable after he goes to an ankle specialist, but the Astros are bracing themselves for the worst. One of the game's top prospects, the 19-year-old Correa was batting .325/.417/.504 with six home runs and 20 stolen bases over 61 games this season with Lancaster.

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa suffered an apparent leg injury Saturday at High-A Lancaster.

Correa was in immediate pain after sliding over the third base bag on a triple into the left-field corner. He had to be carried off the field and was carted away from the dugout with a towel over his head. The Astros should have an update on his status Sunday morning. Correa, 19, was batting .325/.417/.504 with six home runs and 20 steals in 61 games at the beginning of play Saturday evening.

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with a double and two walks for High-A Lancaster on Wednesday, raising his season line to .335/.426/.513.

Correa has been locked in over has four games, as he has nine hits in 18 at bats, which includes three doubles and one triple, as well as six walks. Over his last 25 games, he is hitting .378/.508/.622 with 11 doubles, two triples, and three home runs, as well as 23 walks, 17 strikeouts, and 14 stolen bases. Correa presents a strong argument that he is the top shortstop prospect. The only knock is that he is struggling against left-handed pitching, putting up a .183/.279/.283 line that includes 19 strikeouts in 68 plate appearances (27.9%).

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa hit his fifth home run of the season as part of a 3-for-4 day for High-A Lancaster.

Correa also hit his 10th double and stole his 11th base of the season. His season line sits at .315/.377/.486, as he is quietly putting up a very good season in High-A as a 19-year old. He lacks the buzz of Javier Baez, but he keeps putting up a very good line as the only teenage hitter in the California League who has enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title.

Astros prospect shortstop Carlos Correa went 5-for-6 with a double for High-A Lancaster on Saturday.

Correa only scored one run, but drove in six, raising his season line to .322/.375/.463 with five doubles, three triples, and two home runs. Correa has hit .424/.441/.545 with two doubles and a triple over his past seven games. The Astros would like to see more home runs, but it is a great sign whenever a 19-year old is in the top 10 in any category in High-A.
