Astros SS prospect Correa: 'Anxious,' 'ready' to get back on field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa, who has been sidelined since late June due to a fractured fibula, said he is back to 100 percent, per MLB.com.

"I’m anxious because I want to show them I’m ready and I’m back, and my ankle is feeling great," he said.

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.

Astros feel Appel, Correa talented enough to skip Triple-A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow said Tuesday shortstop prospect Carlos Correa and starting pitcher prospect Mark Appel are talented enough to skip Triple-A, according to the Houston Chronicle. However, it's not a given they will bypass Triple-A before reaching the majors.

Appel finished his first full season in the minors in Double-A last season. Correa finished his first full season in high Class A.

Carlos Correa running, taking ground balls
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros infield prospect Carlos Correa, who broke his fibula in June, has progressed so well that he has been able to run and take ground balls while working out in Florida, MLB.com reports.

"It's a very good sign, where we feel like we're ahead of plan, which is a good place to be," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "I've seen a lot of guys go through injury recovery before, and he's as diligent and focused on healing as possible. Obviously, the body has to heal naturally, but he's not going to let any lack of effort and work delay him by one day."

Correa is expected to take ground balls and batting practice during the instructional league, though he won't see any game action.
