X-ray results come back for Astros' Carlos Correa

The Houston Astros had quite a scare in last night's Grapefruit League game when top prospect Carlos Correa took a pitch off his left hand from the Nationals' Tyler Clippard.  He rolled in pain for a few minutes before he was removed from the game for safety precautions.  Jon Heyman of CBS Sports tweets:

Correa was the first overall pick in the 2012 draft.  He is just nineteen years old and has excelled at every level the Astros have sent him to.  Last season he hit .320 at Single-A Quad Cities with nine home runs, eighty-six runs batted in, thirty-three doubles & three triples.  He'll likely start the season at Double-A this year.

His Spring has been slow though, as he's hit just .214 with a couple home runs and three runs batted in.  He'll likely be given the day off today but should be fine for the rest of the season.

  1. Thankful this kid does not have to start his career with a injury in spring training. Want to see him succeed and watch him play.
