Astros prospect Carlos Correa working on correcting sliding
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

Twins' Byron Buxton named No. 1 prospect by MLB.com
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.

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.
