In Baseball America's new Midseason Prospect Update, shortstop Carlos Correa retains his top spot with the Astros despite not a broken fibula ending his 2014 campaign. Before the injury, Correa played 62 games with high Class-A Lancaster and was hitting .325/.416/.510 with six home runs and 20 stolen bases.

Perhaps even more impressive was the fact that Correa was taking more walks and striking out less than last year in low Class-A. He was walking 12.3 percent of the time (so far a career high for him) and striking out 15.4 percent of the time (a career low).
