Correa, 20, was the first overall pick of the 2012 amateur draft in 29 games with Double-A Corpus Christi. He hit .385 with seven home runs, 32 RBIs, 15 stolen bases, and a .459 on-base percentage this season.

"I'm going to go to Fresno to play good baseball and try to reach my goals and my dreams," Correa said to the Houston Chronicle. "You work your entire life to get at some point to the big leagues. To get one step closer means a lot."

Astros Top Prospect Carlos Correa Out Indefinitely with Ankle Injury

Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) -- The Houston Astros have had some great luck with their prospects this season, but they received some bad news regarding shortstop Carlos Correa as he will miss "a significant period of time" with an ankle injury.

Correa suffered the injury over the weekend while sliding into third base on a triple. He was then carted off the field.

It is unknown just how much time Correa will miss until he's evaluated by an ankle specialist.

“I expect by midweek we’ll have an update to report,” Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow told Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle. “We’re bringing him to Houston. We’ll have him see our specialist."

The 19-year-old Correa was the first-overall selection in the 2012 draft and has quickly emerged as one of the top prospects not only in the Astros system, but in all of baseball.

In 62 games this season for the Astros High-A Lancaster team, Correa is batting .325 with six home runs, 57 RBIs, and 20 steals.
