Astros Injury Update: Carlos Correa progressing as expected on rehab

By on 10/06/2014 03:15:00 PM

With one of the top farm systems in all of baseball, the future of the Houston Astros is very bright.  One of the keys to that bright future appears to be progressing toward a full recovery, as 2012 first round draft pick Carlos Correa said in a statement, reported by Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle, that he expects to be at "full strength in the very near future"
He has been out since June 21st while recovering from a broken fibula sustained when his cleat stuck in the ground while sliding into third base.

The 20-year-old shortstop is currently rated as the second best prospect in all of baseball by  Before the injury he was batting .325 with six home runs and 52 RBIs in his first 62 games in Lancaster.

A healthy Correa would be great news for the Astros heading into 2015.  He is not only one of the best hitting prospects, but his tremendous range and arm strength makes his a great all around shortstop, too.  He will soon be mentioned in the strong wave of young shortstops ready to enter the major leagues.
