Carlos Correa homered in the first and delivered a game-ending single in the 13th as the Astros beat the Rays 3-2 on Wednesday.

Correa had gone 10 straight games without a homer, his longest drought as a major leaguer. But that's over and done with. If the fade is approaching, there's still no real sign of it.
Aug 20 - 12:32 AM

Carlos Correa had an RBI double in a win over the Rays on Tuesday.

Correa's run-scoring double in the eighth knotted the game at 2-2. It was his lone hit in four at-bats. Correa now has 39 RBI and a .285/.356/.532 line on the season.
Aug 19 - 12:06 AM

Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with a walk, homer and two RBI in Thursday's win over the A's.

He also got caught stealing, but who's counting (besides fantasy pedants)? The 20-year-old Correa was coming off a 1-for-9 series against the Rangers, though to be fair the hit was a homer and he walked twice. He's now slashing .291/.345/.567.
Aug 7 - 1:56 AM

Carlos Correa homered for the fourth time in as many games, finishing 1-for-5 in a loss to the Rangers on Monday.

Correa gave the Astros an early 2-0 lead with a first-inning home run off of Colby Lewis, but it was quickly forgotten when the opposition posted a six-spot in the bottom half. The shortstop has done nothing but hit since arriving in the major leagues, currently the proud owner of a .297/.344/.573 triple-slash line along with 13 home runs and 34 RBI in 209 plate appearances.
Aug 3 - 11:50 PM

Carlos Correa went 3-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

The homer, a solo shot in the first inning, was Correa's ninth in 42 games this season. The 20-year-old has hits in 11 of his past 12 games as he settles in at the major league level. Correa is batting .299/.350/.545 with 28 RBI, 25 runs scored and five steals to go with his nine homers.
Jul 29 - 12:34 AM

Carlos Correa slugged his eighth home run Saturday in the Astros' loss to the Rangers.

The seventh-inning solo shot off Colby Lewis gave Houston its first run of the game. Correa later added an RBI single, but the 'Stros couldn't climb all the way back in an eventual 7-6 loss. Correa, 20, is batting .282/.315/.521 with 22 RBI and 19 runs scored in his first 34 major league games. Again, he's 20.
Jul 18 - 11:09 PM

Carlos Correa went 3-for-6 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 12-8, 10-inning win over the Red Sox.

Correa's homer off Craig Breslow in the eighth inning was the rookie phenom's sixth of the season and his RBI single in the 10th snapped an 8-8 tie. The 20-year-old shortstop has lived up to the hype since his call-up and is currently slashing .300/.320/.570 with six homers and 17 RBI. There are bound to be bumps in the road as major league pitchers make adjustments, but Correa's career is off to a fantastic start.
Jul 4 - 12:17 AM

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

Correa twice doubled off Yankees starter Michael Pineda, but the first one was a lazy fly ball that fell between Garrett Jones and Brett Gardner. 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.
Jun 27 - 8:07 PM

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.
Jun 24 - 1:42 AM

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

Per Brian McTaggart of MLB.com, 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.
Jun 18 - 6:51 PM

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.
Jun 13 - 12:16 AM

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.
Jun 10 - 1:00 AM

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.
