Astros' Carlos Correa may have to wait a little longer for promotion


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) 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
(5/22/2015) 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
(5/11/2015) 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.


Astros prospect Carlos Correa could reach majors in a few weeks


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) 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
(5/5/2015) 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.


Astros GM says Carlos Correa is 'close' but not yet ready for majors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) With Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie on the disabled list and top prospect Carlos Correa off to a torrid start at Double-A, it would make sense for the Astros to call up the talented youngster since he could play regularly with Lowrie months away from returning. 

Yet, despite the calls for Houston to give the 20-year-old Correa a chance to fill in for Lowrie, the Astros are just not ready to make that call.

“Carlos is getting close, but he’s had 70 at-bats above A-ball so we’d like to see more," Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow wrote in an email to the New York Post. "We are going to go with [Marwin Gonzalez/Jonathan Villar] for now, but we will be monitoring the situation closely.”

Correa, who is considered a top-five prospect by MLB.com (No. 3) and Baseball America (No. 4), has a .387/.452/.760/1.212 slash line through 18 games for Corpus Christi. He has one triple, five home runs, 11 doubles and 22 RBI.


Astros top prospect Carlos Correa off to torrid start at Double-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Astros top prospect Carlos Correa is putting up some big numbers at Double-A Corpus Christi to begin the 2015 season.

The former No. 1 overall pick (2012) is batting .382 with a .440 on-base percentage, .735 slugging percentage and 1.175 OPS in 16 games. He also has one triple, four home runs, 10 doubles and 21 RBI.

“I feel great up here,” he said, per the Houston Chronicle. “My body feels great. I’m just really happy to be out there playing every single day. After you’ve been injured you appreciate it even more.

“Everything is going great. We’re playing great baseball as a team. I feel good at the plate, and the team is doing a great job.”


Scout: Astros SS prospect Carlos Correa to hit 500 HRs in majors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) One scout predicts Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa will hit 500 home runs in the majors and maybe even reach 600 home runs, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

"He's going to be what A-Rod should have been," the scout said.

Correa, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, is a consensus top-5 prospect. He is batting .309 with a .390 on-base percentage, .471 slugging percentage and .861 OPS in 236 games in the minors. He has 19 home runs.


Luhnow: Astros won't hesitate to call up Correa, Appel from Double-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Astros prospects Carlos Correa and Mark Appel will begin the 2015 season at Double-A Corpus Christi, but they might not need a stint at Triple-A Fresno before making it to The Show.

"We're not going to hesitate to bring them straight up from Double-A if the need arises," general manager Jeff Luhnow told MLB Network Radio on Thursday.

Correa and Appel are ranked as the Astros' top prospects by MLB.com and Baseball America.


Astros option Dominguez, Buchanan, Stassi; reassign Correa


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) The Astros optioned third baseman Matt Dominguez and pitchers Jake Buchanan and Max Stassi to the minors Sunday while reassigning shortstop Carlos Correa, infielder Gregorio Petit, catcher Tyler Heineman and pitchers Darin Downs and James Hoyt to minor-league camp.

Dominguez opened last season as the team's starting third baseman but found himself behind in the race for a bench role this spring.

"[Luis] Valbuena had an amazing spring so far and is basically going to be our third baseman and that leaves Matt in competition with some of the other guys for an extra spot on the roster, a spot off the bench, and right now we feel like there’s a couple of other guys ahead of him and he needs to play every day," general manager Jeff Lunhow said, per MLB.com "Right now he’ll go down to Fresno and play third and play some first and be ready when the need arises."

Correa is the team's top-rated prospect but has yet to play above high Class A.

"Carlos is going to be a star player in the big leagues. It’s just a matter of time," Luhnow said. "Having never had an at-bat in Double-A, he needs to go get some regular work in the high minors. He did a great job for us on the field as well as off the field and I think he’s got a lot of fans in the organization and he impressed the big league staff, which is what you want as a young player."


Astros prospect Carlos Correa working on correcting sliding


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Astros shortstop and former No. 1 pick (2012) prospect Carlos Correa broke his right ankle and fractured his right fibula sliding into third base in June. Now that he's fully recovered from the injury, he told the Houston Chronicle on Wednesday that he's working on correcting his sliding this spring.

"I really want to work on base running," Correa said. "I got hurt on it, so I want to work on it and regain my confidence on it."

Correa, considered the second-best prospect in baseball behind Twins outfielder Byron Buxton, is expected to open the season at Double-A.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) The Astros are expecting shortstop prospect Carlos Correa to open the season at Double-A, according to FOX Sports. Correa is fully recovered after being sidelined since June due to a fractued fibula.

Correa is considered the second-best prospect in baseball behind Twins outfielder Byron Buxton, according to MLB.com. Baseball America also considers the former No. 1 pick (2012) as the Astros' top prospect.


Twins' Byron Buxton named No. 1 prospect by MLB.com


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2015) Twins outfielder Byron Buxton was named the top prospect in baseball by MLB.com Friday.

Buxton played just 31 games in 2014 due to wrist and concussion issues and finished with a .240/.313/.405 line along with four home runs, 16 RBI and six stolen bases in 121 at-bats with high Class A Fort Myers. He also went 0 for 3 at the Double-A level. Buxton is making his second straight appearance atop MLB.com's top prospect list.

The rest of MLB.com's top-five prospects (in order) are Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant, Astros shotstop Carlos Correa, Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor and Cubs shortstop Addison Russell. None of the quartet appeared in the top five of last year's MLB.com prospect list, though all four cracked the top 12.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Correa, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, has logged just 229 games in the minors and hasn't played above high Class A. Although, it seems he is very eager to make his MLB debut.

“I can’t wait for the moment to be up there," he said.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
