Astros Astros select Carlos Correa with first pick in 2012 baseball draft

Quote:


With a move to the American League planned for next season, the Houston Astros faced the choice of a safe college pitcher or a high schooler loaded with potential. But the team chose neither, selecting Carlos Correa, a shortstop from Puerto Rico, with the first pick in the 2012 first year player draft.

The consensus before the draft began was that the team was trying to decide between Mark Appel of Stanford or Byron Buxton, a Georgia high schooler. But Correa, a shortstop who has drawn comparisons to Alex Rodriguez, proved too tempting to pass up.

The highest selection ever out of the Puerto Rican Baseball Academy, Correa is a lanky 6-foot-4 infielder, just like his favorite player, Derek Jeter.
