Astros Injury Update: Carlos Correa will not play in Arizona Fall League

By on 7/29/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Houston Astros entered Monday night's game with a record of 42-63, fourth in the American League West. Although near the bottom of the Major Leagues in both runs scored and staff ERA, the Astros have shown some improvement over last year's dismal 51-111 record. One player who the Astros' organization hopes will be a major contributor down the road is Class-A shortstop Carlos Correa, who is currently recovering from ankle surgery. Although he's improving, Correa will not be playing in the Arizona Fall League.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on June 26 that Correa,  who fractured his fibula sliding into third base while running out a triple in his Class-A Lancaster on June 20, had surgery and would be out for the remainder of the season.

According to the MLB Network Radio Twitter account,
Correa, a 19-year old shortstop from Puerto Rico, was batting .325 with six home runs, 57 RBI and 20 stolen bases in 62 games this season at the time of the injury.  In three Minor League seasons, Correa has a batting average of .308 with 18 home runs, 155 RBI and 36 stolen bases.
