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.
May 11 - 3:14 PM

Astros prospect SS Carlos Correa hit a walk-off, bases-clearing double on Monday as Double-A Corpus Christi defeated Frisco, 5-4.

He went 3-for-5 in the game with a stolen base. No prospect has been more impressive than Correa in the minor league season’s first month, as the 20-year-old is batting .383/.458/.702 with five home runs, 13 doubles, 25 RBI and 11 stolen bases through 23 games. The Astros seem intent on keeping him the minors for now because he missed a good chunk of 2014 with a broken fibula, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that Correa’s time is coming.
May 5 - 3:22 PM

Astros prospect Carlos Correa reached base four times Tuesday for Double-A Corpus Christi.

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.
Apr 26 - 4:05 PM

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.
Apr 15 - 4:18 PM

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.
Mar 25 - 4:30 PM

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.
