Astros Injury Update: Carlos Correa should be fully recovered by spring training

By on 10/16/2014 12:00:00 PM

Although the Houston Astros finished the 2014 season with a record of 70-92 and 28 games out in the American League West, there was marked improvement of the 51-win team of 2013. This off season the Astros look for ways to improve an offense that was 21st in runs scored and a staff that was 25th in ERA. One promising prospect who could help the Astros in the not too distant future is Carlos Correa, who is recovering from a broken fibula. The good news is that he's progressing well and should be recovered by spring training.

Our own  Pete Schwichtenberg reported on October 6 that Correa, been out since June 21 recovering from a broken fibula, was expected to be at full strength in the near future. The injury occurred when Correa's cleat stuck in the ground while sliding into third base.

According to the official Twitter account of the Houston Astros,
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.
