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. Wed, Oct 15, 2014 03:26:00 PM

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.

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa went 3-for-4 with a triple for High-A Lancaster on Monday, raising his season line to .309/.369/.464.

Correa also played shortstop for the first time in four games after missing time due to shoulder tightness. The lack of buzz surrounding the 19-year old prospect is interesting despite his solid season, and it will be interesting to see what happened if he has a hot few weeks. He has the potential to hit in the middle of a lineup, and could see time in the major leagues in 2016.

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa (shoulder) is expected to return to action with High-A Lancaster as a designated hitter this weekend.

Correa missed a week's worth of games with a sore right shoulder, but he's apparently feeling much better. It's not clear when he'll return to playing shortstop. The 19-year-old is hitting .300/.366/.463 with the High-A club this season.

Carlos Correa missed his sixth straight game for High-A Lancaster on Wednesday due to shoulder tightness.

Correa hasn't played since April 24 with the ailment. It doesn't make sense for the Astros to push him, so he'll likely remain out until the shoulder feels 100 percent. The 19-year-old is hitting .300/.366/.463 with the High-A club this season.

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa went 3-for-3 with a double, a triple, and walk on Saturday for High-A Lancaster.

After a pair of hitless games, Correa had a big game on Saturday and lifted is season slash line to .281/.338/.469. He has six walks and nine strikeouts on the season, displaying his advanced batting eye and hand control. The Astros are going slowly with the former #1 overall pick, so he may not see time in Double-A until 2015.

Astros prospect SS Carlos Correa hit his second home run of the year Wednesday night at High-A Lancaster.

Correa batted .400 with a double and a home run during a three-game series in High Desert, one of the most power-friendly parks in professional baseball. He is hitting .283/.328/.453 despite being more than 3 1/2 years younger than the average player in the California League.
