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.

Most of the first round picks where middle of the diamond players. Lots of short stops and second basemen getting taken.

Hopefully this guy develops into something good for the Astros. We all know they could use something good.

Astros will be a good team 3-4 years from now. Hopefully this guy turns into their star player.

They have some players to build around. I like Jose Altuve a lot.
