|Carlos Correa undergoes surgery to repair fractured fibula |

(6/25/14) Astros infield prospect Carlos Correa has undergone surgery to repair a fractured fibula, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Correa will not be allowed to bear weight on the injured leg for four weeks before transitioning to a boot. The injury will keep him out for the remainder of the regular season, though it's possible he'll participate in the fall league. Rated a top-10 overall prospect by multiple outlets before the season, Correa finishes 2014 with a .325/.416/.510 line as well as six home runs, 57 RBI and 20 stolen bases in 249 at-bats with high Class A Lancaster.

(6/23/14) Top Astros prospect Carlos Correa will miss "significant time" with the ankle injury he sustained Saturday while playing for Class A Lancaster, general manager Jeff Luhnow told the Houston Chronicle. The 19-year-old shortstop was on the verge of a promotion to Double-A Corpus Christi.
The team will fly Correa to Houston early this week for a visit with team specialists, the report said.

(6/22/14) Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow provided an update Sunday on the status of shortstop prospect Carlos Correa, who left Saturday's game for Class A Lancaster due to a right ankle injury. He injured the ankle sliding into third base.
"Carlos was examined last night at a local hospital in California," Luhnow said in a press release. "He will travel to Houston early this week to be evaluated further by the Astros medical staff before determining next steps. He will be placed on the disabled list and is expected to miss some time."
|Carlos Correa suffers apparent ankle injury Saturday |

(6/21/14) Astros top prospect Carlos Correa appeared to suffer an ankle injury during a game at Class A Lancaster Saturday.
Correa suffered the injury while sliding into third base on a triple, according to the team's radio broadcaster. He had to be carried off the field and was carted to the clubhouse in the outfield, though no details on the extent of the injury are known.
Correa is one of the top prospects in the minors, and is in the midst of a very strong season. The 19-year-old is hitting .325/.417/.504 in 62 games this season for Lancaster.
|Carlos Correa has career day in the minors |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/11/14) Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa entered Saturday's game for Class A Lancaster riding a seven-game hitting streak. He kept the streak going in a big way by producing five hits and six RBI -- both career highs -- during a 12-5 win.
"The last couple games, I've been hitting the ball pretty hard, but it's been going right at people. I've been hitting it right at everybody," Correa said, per MLB.com. "When you have a game like tonight's, it makes you more confident and you build on it."
Correra continues to have a productive start to the season for Lancaster. He is batting .322 with a .375 on-base percentage, .463 slugging percentage and .838 OPS in 29 games. He also has two home runs, three triples, five doubles, 19 runs and 28 RBI.
Correa's recent hot streak started after he missed seven days with a shoulder injury.
"I'm feeling pretty good," he said. "I've been going out there and playing hard every day, working on my defense and trying to have good at-bats."
|Carlos Correa's .320 batting average in his first year of full-season ball is all the more impressive when you consider he was 18 years old at the time. And while he has a good chance of hitting for average in the majors, it's not even his best tool. At an athletic 6-feet-4, he has the build of a middle-of-the-lineup force, one that will drive balls out of the park at a rate rarely known to the shortstop position. True, he hasn't done it yet, and seeing is believing, but the Astros wouldn't have selected Correa first overall in 2012 -- ahead of Byron Buxton, Mike Zunino and Kevin Gausman, among others -- if they didn't think he had that kind of potential. Just look at all the doubles he's hitting already. The guy can slug it. Of course, he may still be two or three years from slugging it in the majors, both because of his age and the Astros' slow-and-steady approach to player development, but in long-term keeper leagues, you won't find too many prospects more attractive than Correa, especially since he projects to stick at shortstop.
