"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 yearning for jump to Double-A


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Shortstop Carlos Correa wants to make certain he's on a fast-track to the major leagues. The Astros top draft pick in 2012 is looking to start the season at Double-A Corpus Christi.

The 19-year-old certainly earned a promotion after batting .320 with nine home runs, 86 RBI, 33 doubles, 10 stolen bases and .405 OBP last year at Class A Quad Cities.

Correa must bypass Class A Advanced Lancaster to open the year at Double-A. He said he put in the offseason work to convince the Astros to place him there.

"I've been working on a little of everything, mostly on my hitting and speed for my legs, to get more explosive and improve physically," he told MLB.com. "I want to be a little stronger and I've put on a little weight."

Martinez, George Springer and Preston Tucker.

Correa, 19, was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 amateur draft. He hit .320/.405/.467 with nine home runs, 86 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 450 at-bats with Class A Quad Cities last season.

Appel, 22, was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 amateur draft. He went 3-1 with a 3.79 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 33:9 K:BB ratio in 38 innings over 10 starts between low Class A Tri-City and Class A Quad Cities.

After batting .221 in April, Correa has raised his batting average to .321. He hit .349 in May, .370 in June and is batting .308 in July. He has two triples, five home runs, 17 doubles, 49 RBI, 51 runs and eight stolen bases in 73 games.


Carlos Correa leaves game after HBP


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2013) Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa left Monday's game for Class A Quad Cities after he was hit on the right hand by a pitch, the Clinton LumberKings report.

Houston hasn't reported the severity of the injury. Correa also missed time earlier this season due to a hand injury.

Correa has been heating up at the plate after a poor April. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 draft, has a .324/.410/.456/.866 slash line through 64 games. He also has two triples, five home runs, 14 doubles, 47 RBI and 47 runs.


Poor April a distant memory for Carlos Correa


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2013) Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa went 3 for 4 with a double, a home run and two RBI Saturday for Class A Quad Cities. It was just his third game since moving to the third spot in the lineup.

"We were just trying to get him to see a lot of fastballs. I wasn't expecting that Carlos would be hitting like this at this point, so just to protect him and let him see more pitches, more fastballs early in the count, we had him [in the two-hole]," Quad Cities manager Omar Lopez said, per MLB.com. "Now he'll see more breaking stuff [hitting third]."

Correa, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 MLB draft, has been on a roll since batting .221 in April. He has a .324/.410/.456/.866 slash line through 64 games. He also has two triples, five home runs, 14 doubles, 47 RBI and 47 runs.

"[Correa's] showing us that he's more mature at the plate and has the ability to recognize pitches, be more selective and not swing at so many pitches," Lopez said. "I think the power will come. He's got power and I think the balls will end in the bleachers at some point in his career."


Carlos Correa getting back on track after injuries


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2013) Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, is starting to heat up at Class A Quad Cities as the temperature begins to rise and he gets back to 100 percent healthy. Correa had his third-straight multi-hit game Wednesday and is batting .353 in his last 10 games, raising his average to .266.

"I start playing and then I stopped playing because of my back, and then I start playing again and I got hit in the wrist, so I had to stop playing again," Correa said to MLB.com. "You need two weeks of playing every day to really settle in. Now I'm getting to go out and work hard. I hope I can stay healthy and play every day and keep working hard every day with this team."

Correa is batting .385 in May after batting .221 in April. He has three home runs, four doubles, 17 RBI, 19 walks and 22 runs in 25 games.


Cold weather cooling off Carlos Correa's bat


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2013) Following a fast start, Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa has cooled off for Class A Quad Cities largely in part to the cool weather. Correa is batting .221 with a .397 slugging percentage, three doubles, three home runs and 14 RBI in 18 games.

"I've never experienced the cold," Correa said of his early struggles, per MLB.com. "I'm trying to work as hard as I can and do the best I can for my team. It's been very challenging, but I know I have to fight through adversity."

Correa was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 draft, but Quad Cities manager Omar Lopez said the team isn't putting any pressure on the burgeoning prospect to produce in his first full season in the minors.

"It's not that he's chasing the ball or he's got a bad approach or that he's overmatched," Lopez said of Correa's numbers. "Sometimes he's too anxious. He's 18 and anxious. He needs to be more under control. I understand. He probably has high expectations and high goals for this season -- we don't."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"It felt great. You work in the cage, put the work in every single day. It gives me confidence obviously to just keep working on your plan and do what you're doing," Correa said, per MLB.com. "The first one was on a fastball down the middle and I hit it to center field. The second one was a 2-2 slider, I knew that one was gone."

Correa has slowed down a bit after a torrid start to the season, but he's batting .256 with three homers and 13 RBI in 11 games. He also has 10 walks, .396 on-base percentage, .535 slugging percentage and .931 OPS.

"It's been a great start to the season for the team, I feel good. It's a long season so you just keep working," Correa said.


Carlos Correa off to fast start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2013) Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa is off to a fast start for Class A Quad Cities, which is unusual for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 draft, according to MLB.com

Correa is batting .400 (6 for 15) with a homer, two doubles and eight RBI in three games. He was 4 for 7 Saturday, which included a double, a home run, five RBI and a stolen base.

"My first season, I definitely started a little slow," Correa said. "I think this might be the first time I've ever really started fast. But it's definitely a good thing. It means my plan is good and that I should keep it. Just keep my rhythm and keep working on pitch selection and this will happen."
