2020 MLB Draft Guide Player Profile: Carlos Correa
Colby Conway takes an in-depth look at Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa and lets fantasy baseball owners know what they can expect during the 2020 MLB season.
The Houston Astros have been the talk of the town in baseball circles, and while early on a lot of the heat was on Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman , it now appears that Carlos Correa has emerged as the face of it all. He’s been rather outspoken this offseason, and it’s safe to say that this team is by far the hardest to project in 2020. I expect regression across the board, but Correa is coming off a season that he was on pace for a career season. In just 75 games last year, he hit 21 home runs with 42 runs scored, 59 RBI and a .279/.358/.568 slash line. It’s the third-straight season that Correa failed to appear in 111 or more games, and that’s a major knock on him, and now when you introduce the elevated risk of bean balls, it’s not quelling anyone’s concerns to say the least. Overall, there were some positives from 2019 that have me thinking of buying back into Correa yet again in 2020.
