2012 MLB Draft: Astros To Introduce Carlos Correa This Afternoon

According to the Twitter page of Zachary Levine, Ultimate Astros writer, the Houston Astros are prepared to introduce their number one overall pick, Carlos Correa.

The 17-year-old product of the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy is the first Puerto Rican player ever selected first overall. The team expects him to sign with them instead of playing collegiately at the University of Miami. The slot value of being the number one overall pick is about $7.2 million dollars and the Astros have $11.2 million to spend total.

Also, Correa signing would allow the Astros to keep him at the spring training complex in Florida to play for Houston's Gulf Coast League team.
