Carlos Correa Homers For Second Straight Day

Getting acclimated to pro ball isn't always easy.

As simple as Rockies outfielder David Dahl and Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo have made it look, the transition from high school baseball to Rookie ball has been a challenge for Astros shortstop Carlos Correa and Twins outfielder Byron Buxton, the top two picks in last month's draft.

After a sluggish start in the Gulf Coast League, the last two days have been kinder to Correa, who hit his first professional home run yesterday and followed up with another homer today in a 2-for-4 afternoon.

Correa, 17, is now hitting .222/.267/.384 in 104 plate appearances after getting a hit in his fifth straight game, a stretch that includes four multi-hit games. A slow month in the GCL is nothing to be alarmed about with Correa, but it's an encouraging sign to see him starting to get on track.
