Carlos Correa went 4-for-5 with a pair of homers in a loss on Wednesday against the Yankees.

There are 21-year-old top prospects, there are 21-year-old future All Stars, and there are 21-year-olds who somehow transition to the big leagues as present superstars. Correa is the latter. He had four hits and clubbed a pair of homers on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium, which gives him three long balls in the first two games of the 2016 season. Correa is already the total package. He hits for average, hits for power, and steals double-digit bases. He's a fantasy stud.

Carlos Correa went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two stolen bases, and two runs scored Tuesday as the Astros grabbed a 5-3 Opening Day win over the Yankees.

Correa struck out swinging in his first at-bat and committed an error that led to two runs scoring in the bottom of the second, but the 21-year-old shortstop woke up from there. He drove in Jose Altuve on a groundout in the fourth inning, slugged an opposite-field solo homer off Masahiro Tanaka in the sixth inning, and then reached on an error and scored his second run of the afternoon in the eighth. Correa now has 23 home runs, 70 RBI, 16 stolen bases, and 54 runs scored through his first 100 career major league games.
Apr 5 - 4:54 PM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk Tuesday to lead the Astros to an 8-7 win over the Braves.

Correa is crushing the ball this spring; he's batting .414/.500/.793 with three homers in 29 at-bats. He's our No. 3 overall player in mixed-league drafts this year.
Mar 22 - 4:46 PM

Carlos Correa went 3-for-4 on Friday to up his spring average to .500.

He's 7-for-14 with a couple of doubles. Correa is an early first-round pick in any format in which he's available this spring.
Mar 11 - 4:21 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch confirmed Saturday that Carlos Correa would bat third during the upcoming season.

The announcement doesn't come as a surprise as that's where the reigning American League Rookie of the Year finished the 2015 campaign, but it's certainly good news for his fantasy value. Correa is coming off a spectacular rookie campaign where he slashed .279/.345/.512 with 22 homers, 68 RBI and 14 stolen bases in just 99 games. He'll be one of the first names called in all fantasy drafts this spring.

Carlos Correa was named the 2015 American League Rookie of the Year.

Correa narrowly edged out fellow rookie shortstop Francisco Lindor, 124 points to 109. Correa received 17 first-place votes while Lindor snagged 13. Miguel Sano finished a distant third in the voting. While he didn't debut until June, the 21-year-old Correa slashed a terrific .279/.345/.512 with 22 homers, 68 RBI, and 14 stolen bases in only 99 games while playing a tremendous shortstop defensively.

The Baseball Writers Association of America have announced Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor and Miguel Sano as finalists for 2015 American League Rookie of the Year.

It's quite a trio, as all three players should be stars for years to come. Correa has the biggest name value and probably is the favorite to win the award after batting .279/.345/.512 with 22 homers, 68 RBI and 14 stolen bases over 99 games for the Astros.

Carlos Correa homered twice and doubled in the Astros' ALDS Game 4 loss to the Royals on Monday.

Correa hit a solo shot in the bottom of the third, roped an RBI double down the right field line in the bottom of the fifth, and then put the Astros up 5-2 with a towering two-run shot to left field in the bottom of the seventh. But the young shortstop let a bad-hop groundball jump over his glove in the top of the eighth and the Royals rattled off five runs in that frame. Correa hit a leadoff single in the bottom of the ninth, but the Astros were down 9-6 at that point and Royals closer Wade Davis was able to convert the save. Correa is the youngest player in American League history to homer twice in a game. He finished the day 4-for-4 with two runs scored and four RBI.

Carlos Correa (knee) said after Friday's game that he will play in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Royals on Sunday.

Correa fouled a ball of his knee for the second consecutive game on Friday, and while he's dealing with pain and swelling, it isn't going to keep him out of the Astros lineup.

Carlos Correa came up a double shy of the cycle and drove in four runs as the Astros crushed the Diamondbacks 21-5N on Friday.

It's certainly to the Astros' advantage that they got to go against an NL team playing out the string as they attempt to clinch a spot in the postseason. Correa, George Springer and Colby Rasmus all scored four times in the Astros' rout tonight. Correa's homer was his 22nd of the year, but the triple was his first as a major leaguer.

Carlos Correa belted a pair of the Astros six total home runs as they came from behind to overpower the Rangers 9-7 on Saturday afternoon in Houston.

The Astros fell behind early in this one, giving up three runs in the top of the first inning. Correa helped to chip away at the deficit though, blasting a solo homer in the bottom half of the inning and adding a two-run job in the third for good measure. He also singled and drew a walk in the contest, finishing the day 3-for-4 with three runs scored and three RBI. A heavy favorite for Rookie of the Year honors, Correa is now hitting .282/.350/.520 with 21 homers and 61 RBI.

Carlos Correa doubled, tripled, and homered in four at-bats, helping the Astros take down the Angels on Monday.

Correa smacked a two-run home run in the third inning to put the Astros up 4-0. He added an RBI double in the seventh to make it a 6-1 game. The 20-year-old has put together an excellent rookie campaign, batting .279/.345/.507 with 19 home runs, 56 RBI, 45 runs scored, and 12 stolen bases.

Carlos Correa hit his 18th homer Saturday against the Angels.

The Astros scored just twice all night, doing so on solo shots from Correa and Hank Conger. Correa's 18 homers and 52 RBI have come in just 79 major league games. That seems pretty good for a 20-year-old shortstop.

Carlos Correa had a three-run homer and an RBI groundout as part of Monday's loss to the A's.

It was just Correa's second homer in a month, but he's still been able to keep his average and OBP up. He remains the AL Rookie of the Year favorite.
