The main thing for fans to watch out for with Carlos Correa is if he can put up numbers similar to what he did in May. That would be very difficult.
The American League Player of the Month for the month of May, Correa hit seven home runs and drive in 26 RBIs, hitting .386 with a 1.130 OPS. Correa is the first Astros player to win Player of the Month in 2017 and the first since Jose Altuve won the award in June of 2016.
The month of May for Correa should come as a huge sigh of relief for Astros fans. After hitting 20 home runs and driving in 96 RBIs with a .274 batting average and a .811 OPS a season ago, Correa came into the season without a lot of power. With only a .233 batting average, the young shortstop only had six extra base hits with two home runs in 86 at bats. A .349 slugging percentage had a lot of Astros fans worried, especially out of the clean up spot.
Now it seems as though Correa has one thing to worry about. That is the starting job at shortstop for the AL All Star team. He is currently behind Cleveland Indians shortstop, and 2015 AL Rookie of the Year runner up, Francisco Lindor. However, with the numbers Correa is putting up and with more hardware to put to his name, he should have nothing to worry about.
