Breaking: Carlos Correa Carried Off Field After Hurting Ankle


Houston Astros #1 prospect, Carlos Correa, had to be carted off the field Saturday night. Jason Schwartz is a JetHawks broadcaster and has some information, though we probably won’t hear much until Sunday morning at the earliest.

UPDATE:

 

Here’s Dan Fillat, who was in attendance for tonight’s game.

There could not be worse news right now than a major injury to Correa. Astros fans have seen how great young players can infuse a much needed boost to the Astros, and Correa was close to a year away from joining the team. Missing an extended period of time will certainly push his timetable back. This injury doesn’t look good and it could be a while before we see Correa back in action.

Let’s just hope Correa is okay and can come back in a few weeks.
