Astros | Carlos Correa collects three more hits

Sun, 17 May 2015 06:24:52 -0700

Houston Astros SS prospect Carlos Correa hit two doubles and one single Saturday, May 16, as Class AAA Fresno (Calif.) topped El Paso (Tex.). Correa has hit safely in each of his five games at Class AAA, including four doubles.

Fantasy Tip: Correa seems to be on the fast track to the major leagues. Owners with any type of roster space need to stash Correa now, in preparation for a re-call to the Astros.

Astros | Carlos Correa promoted to Class AAA

Mon, 11 May 2015 12:36:39 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa has been promoted to Class AAA Fresno (Calif.).

Fantasy Tip: Correa has been off to a terrific start this season and likely will be joining the Astros in the near future if he can succeed in Fresno. Owners in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only leagues may want to consider stashing him on their bench if they have room for Correa.

Astros | Carlos Correa raking at Class AA

Fri, 08 May 2015 14:12:30 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa is 11-for-20 (.550) with three doubles, two home runs, nine RBI and six steals over his last five games with Double-A Corpus Christi. He is currently batting .390 with 14 doubles, seven home runs and 14 stolen bases over 26 games this season.

Fantasy Tip: With Jed Lowrie (thumb) recently moved to the 60-day disabled list, the timeline for Correa's Astros debut could be pushed ahead a little. He is an elite prospect at a shallow fantasy position and might soon have very little left to prove at the minor league level. It isn't out of the question to stash Correa in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Astros | Carlos Correa moving to AAA

Wed, 06 May 2015 11:12:00 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa will be promoted to Class AAA in the next week or two, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow.

Fantasy Tip: Correa is not expected to be rushed up to the big league level, but if he keeps tearing it up in the minors, the Astros may have their hand forced, especially with Jed Lowrie out until after the All-Star break. In 24 games with Double-A Corpus Christie, Correa is hitting .398 (39-for-98) with six home runs, 28 RBI and 13 stolen bases. It's time you start considering adding him in AL-only leagues and deep mixed leagues. If he's called up, he'll be very expensive off the waiver wire everywhere.

Astros | Carlos Correa not ready

Fri, 01 May 2015 08:55:30 -0700

Houston Astros SS prospect Carlos Correa, who is batting .385 with five home runs and 22 RBI at Double-A Corpus Christi, needs more seasoning before coming up to the major leagues, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow. "Carlos is getting close, but he's had 70 at-bats above A-ball, so we'd like to see more," Luhnow said.

Fantasy Tip: Correa is the team's top minor league prospect and is probably already owned in all keeper and deep NL-only leagues. However, he broke his leg last year and needs more time in the minors, especially since he hasn't even appeared at Class AAA. With Jed Lowrie out and the Astros playing great ball, there's no need for Houston to rush him up. Marwin Gonzalez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will hold down the fort at the 6 for now, and he's a low-end flyer at FantasyScore in the right matchups.

Astros | Carlos Correa on fire

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 07:05:15 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa is hitting .400 with five homers and 22 RBI in 70 at-bats at Double-A Corpus Christi.

Fantasy Tip: The team has every reason to be patient with the 20-year-old Correa. However, Jed Lowrie (thumb) is out until the All-Star break and it's not out of the question that his arrival date could be expedited. Keep him on your watch list in deeper leagues.

Astros | Carlos Correa hits 5th home run

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 15:36:53 -0700

Houston Astros SS prospect Carlos Correa hit his fifth home run Tuesday, April 28, while playing for Double A Corpus Christi. Correa also doubled and drew two walks.

Fantasy Tip: Correa is now hitting .400/.468/.800 for Corpus Christi. The Astros insist they'll be patient with the top prospect, but he's certainly making it difficult for them to keep him in the minor leagues with his hot start. Owners in AL-only, deeper mixed leagues or keeper leagues can go ahead and stash Correa now.

Astros | Carlos Correa unlikely to come up

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 09:57:33 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa is unlikely to be promoted to the major leagues if SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) lands on the disabled list, in the opinion of MLB.com's Brian McTaggart.

Fantasy Tip: Correa is hitting .382 with four home runs and 21 RBI in just 16 games with Double-A Corpus Christi this year, and he's the team's top prospect in the minors. The Astros want to be patient with him and likely expose him to Class AAA before calling him up, though. However, he should already be stashed in all AL-only leagues, and you may want to consider stashing him right now in deep mixed leagues if he's available.

Astros | Carlos Correa on fire in minors

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:36:35 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa has homered in back-to-back games in the minors and is hitting .375 with 10 doubles, four home runs, 19 RBI and a 1.147 OPS in 15 games this year.

Fantasy Tip: Correa is one of Houston's biggest prospects in the minros, and he could see a call up to the big leagues at some point this season. However, with Jed Lowrie ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) swinging a hot stick in the early going, the need for him is low right now. Regardless, Correa should be owned in all NL-only leagues, and deep mixed owners may want to consider stashing him before long.

Astros | Carlos Correa sent down

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 14:42:31 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa was sent down to Double-A Corpus Christi in a round of cuts made on Sunday, March 29.

Fantasy Tip: Correa was a former No. 1 draft pick who lost some significant time last year with injuries. If he can be stashed in a deep AL league he might be worth an end-of-draft pickup.
