Astros' top prospect Correa out for season
HOUSTON (AP) Carlos Correa, Houston's top prospect and the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 draft, has had season-ending surgery after breaking his right fibula.
Correa was injured while sliding into third base Saturday night in a game for Single-A Lancaster.
Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow says Correa had the surgery on Wednesday in Houston and is expected to return for the 2015 season.
Correa was named to the All-Star Futures game this week after hitting .325 with six homers and 57 RBIs in 62 games for Lancaster this season.
