Recently, there has been a lot of moving and shaking going on down in Corpus Christi, but none of those moves have seemed to take away from the big picture down there. They’re still winning a lot of baseball games. They carry a record of 52-25 and are currently 4-3 in the second half of the Texas League’s season.
Their success is translating to success with the Astros as well, as Carlos Correa, Lance McCullers, and Vincent Velasquez have all come through Corpus Christi on their respective paths to Houston this season. In fact, Vincent Velasquez was in my last edition of Who’s Hot & Who’s Not from three weeks ago and Lance McCullers made an appearance in my first edition.
With many new prospects coming into the system after the first year player draft and during the international signing period, expect many more future Astros to be pushed up to Corpus Christi very soon. Some are already in a Hooks uniform, so let’s take a look at those guys now.
