Astros' Carlos Correa may have to wait a little longer for promotion
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) Astros top prospect Carlos Correa could just be biding his time at Triple-A as he awaits the call to the Major Leagues. But he may have to wait at least another month or so before that time comes, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.
Heyman says that there are members of the Astros' staff that would like to have Correa up now. But it seems likely that the team will wait until June in order to reduce the chances of him becoming a Super Two player, giving the team an extra year of contract control.
Astros prospect Carlos Correa thriving after Triple-A promotion
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa has had a pretty smooth transition from Double-A to Triple-A.
He homered for a second straight game Thursday and has hit safely in eight of nine games since his promotion. He has multihit games in five of his last six appearances.
The highly touted prospect is batting .326 with a .558 slugging percentage, .920 OPS, two home runs, four doubles and seven RBI in nine games since joining Fresno.
"I think I've gotten stronger these last two games -- I'm just kidding,"Correa said after Thursday's game, per MiLB.com. "I've just been trying to drive the ball, and I've seen some fastballs up in the zone."
Correa's home run Thursday came off former AL Cy Young award winner Barry Zito.
"It was really fun [facing Zito]," Correa said. "I've seen that guy pitch a lot at the big league level, and I've even played [as] him in video games, because I'm a video game guy. I have a lot of respect for him, and it was fun to play against him as a competitor."
Astros promote Carlos Correa to Triple-A Fresno
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/15) The Astros have promoted shortstop prospect Carlos Correa to Triple-A Fresno, the team announced Monday.
Rated as the No. 4 prospect in baseball per Baseball America before the season, Correa has had little issue in his first exposure to the high minors, hitting .385/.459/.726 with seven home runs, 32 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 117 at-bats with Double-A and earning a promotion to Triple-A. If he continues to produce at such a blistering rate with his new team, he could soon see his first taste of the majors.

|(5/6/15) Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa may get the call to the majors very soon, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Correa, who is currently playing in Double-A, may be called up in the next couple of weeks to Houston, according to Heyman. Correa is considered Houston's top prospect and is hitting a blistering .398 with six home runs and 28 RBI in 98 at-bats for Double-A Corpus Christi.
Astros prospect Carlos Correa could reach Triple-A this month
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Astros shortstop Carlos Correa is only 20 years old, but he's rocketing through the team's farm system. A first-round pick in 2012, Correa is hitting .383 with a 1.160 OPS at Double-A Corpus Christi. Correa has five home runs, 25 RBI.
One MLB general manager said that the Astros' current lineup doesn't have many holes, but "Correa can change a lot," per the Houston Chronicle.
Astros GM Jeff Luhnow still thinks Correa has something to prove in the Texas League.
"I want a couple teams to come back and say, 'OK, well, we faced this guy last time, how are we going to get him out this time and have a plan of attack?'" Luhnow said. "And see how he reacts to that. It’s happening now. We look at it on a week-by-week basis and see whether the next step is now or a week from now or two weeks from now."
After that, it will be on to the next level for the prospect.
"There’s a good chance we’ll get him up (to Class AAA) this month." Luhnow said.
|2014 summary: Carlos Correa , who entered 2014 as MLB.com's second-ranked prospect, had few problems with California League pitching, as he batted .325 with six home runs and 20 stolen bases over 62 games. That was all Correa would produce because his season ended in June when he suffered a fractured fibula that required surgery. Correa was reportedly completely recovered by November.|
Playing time status: Correa is expected to be ready for the beginning of spring training. He could receive his first big league promotion at some point during the 2015 season.
2015 outlook: It's not a given that Correa will spend time in the majors this season, but Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow has indicated that he is willing to promote him directly from Double-A. That possibility makes Correa a potential late- or reserve-round target in standard mixed leagues.
