Astros GM says Carlos Correa is 'close' but not yet ready for majors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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

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.”

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

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

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."
