All Carlos Correa Posts

Correa is the highest ranked shortstop in the draft, although like most prep shortstops, he’s no guarantee to stick at the position. He’s got above average tools defensively, with an above average arm and above average range. However, he may fill out his body, eventually forcing a move to third base. Correa is an above-average hitter, with the potential to hit for power. That power potential will really come when he fills out his body, meaning it will be part of what could move him to third base.

Correa’s stock has really gone up this year. He entered the season as a mid-first round prospect, but is considered a top five pick right now. He would be a great pick for the Pirates if he fell to number eight, but the chances of that happening are slim.
