The Houston Astros, as you may recall, used their overall No. 1 pick in the 2012 MLB Draft to select shortstop Carlos Correa out of the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy and High School. The Stros had little problem signing Correa to a contract and Houston fans can look forward to eagerly tracking the top prospect's progress. That road begins here.
Joseph Duarte of Ultimate Astros reports that Correa had his first workout as a pro with the Astros on Tuesday morning. Correa went through a full workout with other Houston minor-leaguers at the Astros' Spring Training facilities in Kissimmee, Florida. Correa both took batting practice and participating in infield drills.
Fans can anticipate many more updates over the next few years as Correa succeeds -- or fails -- while working his way through the minor league system.
