Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in a win over the Yankees on Sunday.

Gardner proceeded to boot the ball, allowing Correa to round the bases and score. Correa scored another run on an Evan Gattis triple later in the game. The shortstop is as advertised through his first 20 games, hitting .314/.337/.593 with 15 RBI and 13 runs scored. Jun 28 - 4:47 PM

Carlos Correa went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

Correa hit one of the Astros' three homers against Masahiro Tanaka on the afternoon. The homer, a two-run shot, was Correa's fifth in 19 games since being promoted. The phenom hasn't looked at all out of place in the majors, hitting .301/.326/.566 with 15 RBI, 11 runs scored and four steals.

Carlos Correa went 3-for-6 with a three-run homer and four RBI as the Astros demolished the Angels 13-3 on Tuesday.

Correa is the 10th 20-year-old to hit at least four homers in his first 15 career games, joining Hall of Famers Ted Williams, Frank Robinson and Orlando Cepeda, plus more recent stars Miguel Cabrera, Andruw Jones and Jason Heyward. Correa also has five doubles and four steals already.

Carlos Correa went 1-for-4 with two runs scored and stole three bases Thursday against the Rockies.

Per Brian McTaggart of, at 20 years and 269 days old, Correa became the second-youngest player in the past 100 years with three stolen bases in a game. Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson was 20 years and 241 days old when he stole three bases on August 23, 1979. Pretty decent company there. Correa is batting .349/.378/.626 with three home runs, seven RBI, four stolen bases, and seven runs scored over his first 10 games in the majors.

Carlos Correa smacked a solo homer against the Mariners on Friday.

Not a bad way to reward those who were in attendance for his first home game in the majors. Correa is 5-for-16 (.313) with two home runs, one double, and four RBI over his first four games and has hit safely in all of them. He's only 20 years old, so it's unfair to expect him to be a savior, but it's not going to take much for him to be valuable at the shortstop position in fantasy leagues.

Carlos Correa finished 2-for-4 with his first major league home run in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

With a man on in the ninth inning, Correa connected on a Zach Duke pitch for the first of what will likely be many homers in an Astros uniform. He also singled and stole his first base as a major leaguer in the contest. It's only been two games but all of Correa's skills have been on display thus far, offering an exciting peek at how good the 20-year-old should be for years to come.

Carlos Correa beat out an infield single, allowing a run to score for his first hit and RBI in his major league debut Monday as the Astros fell to the White Sox.

With a runner on third base and two outs in the fourth inning, Correa grounded a Chris Sale offering in the hole to shortstop Alexei Ramirez. Correa was initially ruled out on the play, but it was reviewed and the call overturned, giving the rookie his first major league hit and RBI. Expect many more hits and RBI as the 20-year-old establishes himself in the majors.

Carlos Correa is starting at shortstop and batting sixth for the Astros in his major league debut Monday night at U.S. Cellular Field.

Correa was officially recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Sunday night. He didn't hit nearly as well at the Triple-A level as he did in Double-A, but the 20-year-old is an exciting, dynamic young talent with the ability to make an immediate offensive and defensive impact for Houston. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Astros purchased the contract of INF Carlos Correa from Triple-A Fresno.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow noted in a press release: "We scuffled a little bit in these last few days. ... We really feel like he can help our club right now win ballgames." The top overall selection from the 2012 draft, Correa slashed .332/.402/.602 with 10 homers, 43 RBI and 18 stolen bases in 52 games between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Fresno this season. With the offensive landscape of the shortstop position around the league, he becomes immediately relevant in all mixed leagues and is a recommended addition wherever he's available.

Astros SS prospect Carlos Correa plated two runs Saturday in a win for Triple-A Fresno.

He's hit .389 during his five-game hitting streak. Correa hasn't fared quite as well in Triple-A as he did earlier this year in Corpus Christi (.385 AVG in 29 games) but he's still hitting a respectable .266 with a .447 slugging percentage. Saturday was Correa's 24th multi-hit game of the season.
Jun 7 - 5:38 PM

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa was held out of Triple-A Fresno's lineup Monday due to a sore right heel.

Correa injured the heel on a slide home Sunday. His absence from the lineup is viewed as precautionary, so consider the top prospect day-to-day. Correa is hitting .327/.398/.607 with 10 homers, 41 RBI and 18 steals between Double- and Triple-A this season and is expected to make his major league debut before long.
Jun 1 - 8:53 PM

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa broke an 0-for-8 slump by belting his third homer Tuesday for Triple-A Fresno.

Correa also gunned down a runner at home plate. The 20-year-old has shown he belongs by hitting .283 in his first 14 games at Triple-A. He's hitting second in a potent Fresno lineup and looks poised to be a big-time contributor. The Astros have done fine without him but there's certainly a chance Corra could play at the big league level this season.

Astros shortstop Carlos Correa belted his first Triple-A homer Tuesday in a win for Fresno.

Correa hasn't stopped hitting since his promotion, batting .316 with a .500 slugging percentage over his first eight games with Fresno. He has two or more hits in four of his last five contests. With 16 steals and 36 RBI across two levels, Correa has been as good as any hitter in the minor leagues this season. The 20-year-old appears poised to make his big league debut in 2015.
May 20 - 3:36 PM

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa smacked three hits Saturday in a win for Triple-A Fresno.

It was Correa's first three-hit game in Triple-A. The 20-year-old is hitting .379 across two minor league levels this season. Correa, proud owner of a nine-game hitting streak, isn't just living up to his massive hype—he's exceeding it. The Astros are already making a playoff push years ahead of schedule. If Correa's minor league success translates to the big leagues, Houston could become a powerhouse in the AL West.
May 17 - 4:07 PM

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa has been promoted from Double-A Corpus Christi to Triple-A Fresno.

A much-deserved bump for the 20-year-old, who was batting .385/.459/.726 with seven home runs, 32 RBI, 15 stolen bases, and 25 runs scored in 29 games at the Double-A level. Jed Lowrie is out through the All-Star break with a torn thumb ligament, so there's been talk of Correa making an early arrival in the majors. He's now just one step away.
