Top Astros prospect Correa suffers leg injury

Houston Astros prospect Carlos Correa — one of two No. 1 overall draft picks to play with the Quad Cities River Bandits last year — suffered what appeared to be a serious leg injury sliding into third base on an RBI triple for the High-A Lancaster JetHawks last night.

The injury was serious enough that he had to be carried off the field and carted to the clubhouse. The Antelope Valley Press reported that Correa may have suffered a broken right fibula.

According to MLB.com, the 19-year-old shortstop was expected to be promoted to the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks soon after hitting .325 with 6 HR and 57 RBI in 62 games for the JetHawks.

Correa was the second-youngest player in the Midwest League last year when he batted .320 with 9 HR and 86 RBI in 117 games.
