by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

But after going hitless in back-to-back games for the first time, Correa will start Wednesday's game on the bench. Marwin Gonzalez will get the start at shortstop, batting eighth on Wednesday.

Correa blasted a two-run home run, his fifth of the season already, to cut the Yankees' lead to 6-5. 

"It's really fun playing with that guy," second baseman Jose Altuve said, per MLB.com. "Great hitter, great defender. It's great to play up the middle with him. He was so excited for that home run."

Remarkably, Correa has been held hitless in just four of the first 18 games of his young career.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"Well, he's not a secret anymore," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of his shortstop, per MLB.com. "He's a good player, very comfortable up here. He's not timid at all. He's doing a lot of things right early and gaining a lot of confidence at this level."

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft is batting .308 with five doubles, 11 RBI, 10 runs and four stolen bases.

"The last player I've seen with that kind of confidence and charisma at that age was Trouty," said Astros catcher Hank Conger, who played alongside Angels outfielder Mike Trout for three years. "Those guys don't get frustrated about anything on the field. They just keep playing."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

He also doubled, walked and scored twice.

Astros shuffle lineup before facing Mariners


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Jake Marisnik will make his first start in left field, giving Preston Tucker a day off. He will bat sixth in the lineup.

First baseman Chris Carter, who hit a home run out of the ninth spot on Friday, will bat in the cleanup spot on Saturday.

Correa drove in the runs when he hit the first home run of his career off Zach Duke in the ninth inning. The two-run shot was his second and third RBI in his first two games with the Astors. He finished the game 2 for 4 with one strike out.

"It's always good to get the first one out of the way," Correa said, per MLB.com. "I wish we could have won the game. We battled back and tried to come back in the game. We gave a lot of effort that last inning. It felt great. I wish we could have won the game."

Astros bring up premier SS prospect Carlos Correa


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) The Astros have announced the promotion of prized shortstop prospect Carlos Correa. He will join the team Monday against the host White Sox.

The 20-year-old Correa has not missed a beat ascending through the system. Despite a late-May slump, he boasts a slash line of .332/.404/.602 with 10 home runs and 43 RBI in 211 at-bats at Double-A and Triple-A combined.

The Astros have certainly needed an upgrade at that position since Jed Lowrie went down in late April.


Astros' Carlos Correa slowing down in Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2015) Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa went 1 for 3 with a triple in Sunday's game with Triple-A Fresno but is just 2 for 19 in his last five games.

Correa dominated the Double-A level earlier this year, posting a 1.185 OPS in 117 at-bats and earning a promotion to Triple-A. After a solid start at the new level, the elite prospect has struggled a bit, and he now owns a .241/.307/.430 line with three home runs, eight RBI and three stolen bases in 79 at-bats with Fresno.

General manager Jeff Luhnow said Correa is dealing with a sore right heel, but the team is not concerned with the issue, reports the Houston Chronicle.


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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.”

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.
