Carlos Correa in Houston to see specialist


Houston Astros top prospect Carlos Correa has arrived in Houston and will be examined by the club’s orthopedist. Correa suffered an injury to his right leg Saturday night but  an official diagnosis has yet to be disseminated.

The Astros have kept a tight lid on the extent of Correa’s injury to this point. However, General Manager Jeff Luhnow did tell Jose de Jesus Ortiz that the #1 pick in the 2012 draft is “expected to miss significant time”.

Correa was officially placed on the disabled list today and Chan Moon has been promoted to Lancaster to take his place on the JetHawks’ roster.

We have also learned, thanks to Eric Smith of The Antelope Valley Press,  that Correa has indeed arrived in Houston.

I’m not sure how much more we are going to hear about Correa’s injury in the coming days. But one thing is for sure: Astros fans everywhere are hoping for the best and wishing a speedy recovery to the 19-year old phenom.

Hopefully, it won’t be long until we see Carlos back on the baseball diamond doing what he loves. It has been rumored that the Astros will send him to the Arizona Fall League in October if he is game ready at that time.
