How bad was the fractured fibula suffered last month by Astros top prospect and former No. 1 overall pick Carlos Correa? They initially hoped he’d be ready to participate in the Arizona Fall League to get some of the at-bats he missed during the regular season, but general manager Jeff Luhnow told Jose De Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle they no longer believe the shortstop will be ready by then.
Before the injury Correa was having an excellent season, hitting .325 with 20 steals in 62 games at high Single-A as a 19-year-old. He’d emerged as a consensus top-10 prospect across baseball and seemed ready to potentially make the jump to Double-A before his 20th birthday, but now he’s unlikely to see any game action again until spring training.
