Carlos Correa News
Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa could be tasked with shouldering more offensive responsibility this weekend against the Mariners. The Astros placed teammates Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez on the injured list due to COVID protocols and the team could be without all three this weekend. Correa is off to a solid start this season, slashing .292/.346/.542 with three doubles, three home runs and six runs batted in through 48 at-bats. Correa will be a free agent at the end of the season and is banking on a strong offensive season. Expect Correa to hit in the middle of the lineup through the weekend series against the Mariners.
Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa went 1-or-4 in the Astros 7-3 loss to the A's on Saturday. Correa found himself in the three-spot of the lineup with teammate Alex Bregman on the bench but the talented shortstop stranded three runners. After a quiet start, Correa has really come on this week, posting two doubles, two home runs and five runs batted in over his last five games. The season is very early but Correa's five extra-base hits through his first 36 at-bats is a very promising start to his season.
Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa will head into this week's action looking to heat up at the plate. Correa is 4-for-17 through the team's first four games but picked up his first extra-base hit on Saturday. The 26-year-old, unfortunately, has been an "every-other-year" player the past few seasons and posted a career-worst .709 OPS during last year's shortened season. Correa will be a free agent at the end of the season and, in theory, 2021 should be a bounce back campaign for the talented shortstop. The Astros will face left-handed Angels starter Jose Quintana Monday night and Correa hit .279 against lefties last season.
Before 2020, the question of Houston Astros shortstopCarlos Correa's fantasy stardom seemed to only be about his health. He had played just one full season in his five-year career but had always posted strong numbers and flashed MVP-level upside. In 2020, he did stay on the field for a "full" season, but he really underwhelmed in those 58 games. Correa hit just .264/.326/.383 with five home runs and zero steals. Correa is now entering his age-26 season with twice as many question marks as before. Not only do the health questions exist, but now we cannot even be sure if he will be great when he's on the field. He's maintained strong plate discipline (22% strikeout rate, 7% walk rate), which is cause for optimism, but he really did not have a good batted-ball profile in 2020 with a low .306 expected wOBA and an average exit velocity of just 88.6 mph. Correa still possesses the upside to crush his low draft price, but we think those waiting for him to finally have an MVP season will be waiting forever.
