Carlos Correa Suffered A Fractured Fibula

According to Evan Drellich (Houston Chronicle), Carlos Correa has suffered a fractured fibula and will be out the rest of the season.

Correa was hurt over the weekend and went to Houston for surgery.

Correa, 19, ends the season slashing .325/.416/.510 while hitting 6 HR, 6 3B, 16 2B, 57 RBI, and 20 stolen bases. He will likely play in the Arizona Fall League after the season to make up for th lost time.

The former first overall pick in 2012 was hurt sliding into third base after hitting a triple while playing for the Lancaster JetHawks. He was in line for a promotion sometime in the near future after ripping up the California League.

The Astros don’t expect this injury to have any long-term effects.

Correa will likely play for the Astros in Spring Training in 2015, and then the Astros will decide whether to keep him on the roster or send him to Triple-A OKC or Double-A CC.
