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.

Carlos Correa returned to the Astros' lineup and went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's win against the Mariners.

Correa pushed the Astros' lead to 5-1 with a fifth-inning two-run blast off of Vidal Nuno. The shortstop hadn't played since Tuesday due to a hamstring issue. The rookie has had a terrific season since debuting in June, batting .281/.349/.521 with 16 home runs, 45 RBI, 38 runs scored, and 11 stolen bases.

Carlos Correa (hamstring) will run the bases and do agility drills on Monday.

Correa has sat out the last four games with a left hamstring strain, but he's feeling better and should be back in the lineup soon. "We’ll give (Correa) another day to get treatment," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "May or not use him as a pinch hitter, but I’m happy with what he’s doing,"

Carlos Correa (hamstring) is out of the Astros' starting lineup Saturday against the Twins.

Correa has now missed two straight starts with discomfort in his left hamstring, but he told reporters before the game Saturday that he should be available off the bench. Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh.

Carlos Correa is missing a second straight start Friday due to what he describes as "just a little soreness" in his left hamstring.

He'll have three days off when you add in Thursday's off day. It doesn't sound like a major concern, as Correa should have a shot to return to action by the end of the weekend. Marwin Gonzalez is again getting the call at shortstop Friday.
